What Students Are Saying

3.74 Average Rating
LeTourneau University is a very professional school. They make you work hard, lean a lot and have fun doing it. It is very hands on and the teachers go the extra mile to make sure you succeed at what you are doing in the LeTourneau Community and beyond.
Rebecca from Crestwood, KY
I'm a mechanical engineer at LeTourneau and honestly couldn't have chosen a better place to be. I almost went to Rice, but the Christian environment and the genuineness of the students and faculty brought me to LeTU. The classes are challenging (that's coming from an honor's student:), but it's definitely worth it; I've learned so much and made friends that will last a lifetime.
