What Students Are Saying

3.74 Average Rating
jump into activities on campus. it is important to study hard and focus on the school work, but networking and connecting with people makes college worthwhile. the yellow jacket activities council (yac) holds events on almost a weekly basis including outdoor movies, laser tag tournaments, and pancake dinners. yac also partners with a number of other clubs and sports teams to immerse the student body in every part of campus living. join a society. start a club. attend a sporting event.

Come in ready to have fun and work hard. The more general education credits (English, Physics, Math...) you come in with the better.
Rebecca from Crestwood, KY
LeTourneau has a group for every body. There's a parkor club, a jazz band, people who go out on the weekends to dance two-step . . . Just be ready to be who you are and find the right group to hang out with. At the same time, be aware that floor community is very strong at LETU. You'll end up having a blast with your floor mates regardless your differences.
Judah from Carrollton, TX
Take the ACT multiple times. That extra point could mean $2000 more a year for your merit scholarship.
Take dual credit classes in high school. They are an excellent way in getting rid of your basics so you can start on something relevant to your major.
Apply for housing IMMEDIATELY after being accepted (if you know you are going there). I waited until mid-June before my freshman year and barely got into a dorm.
Check LeTourneau's deadline for FAFSA as well, if you want need-based financial aid or loans.

Tips:
-LeTourneau offers a great learning community for all of its majors, but especially for students seeking a hands on degree related to Aviation or Engineering.
-Do your Homework
-LeTourneau is pretty small, so everything is campus centered.

Pray about if this is the school you are called to, and if you are listen to God. Even if it's scary and you feel out of place.

Make sure to get to know your floor mates. They are the ones who will be there for you when things get tough. Also, be sure to visit the Achievement Center if you are struggling - they are excellent helpers.
Kimberly from Spring, TX
Try to get A's in any and all remaining high school classes to maximize your GPA, and get the Official SAT Study Guide and do several of the practice tests inside to maximize your score when you take the SAT. These will maximize the monetary assistance you will get from the college, as well as raising your chances of getting other scholarships.
Get in touch early with an admissions counselor here, who will help you with everything until you start your classes.
If you are taking AP classes, make sure you take the AP tests and do well on them, so that you can transfer in credits and start with a lighter load. It is always good to start with a light load while you get used to how things work.
If you may be transferring more than 12 credit hours, you may want to wait until you have paid your part of the tuition before you ask to have the credits counted.
Class starts the last week of August, and registration is the last week before class starts. You meet with a counselor who teaches classes associated with your major, and he/she advises you on what to take. It is a good idea to meet with him/her again a couple days after your counseling appointment and review the schedule in case your mind has changed about any of the classes.
David from La Crescenta, CA
Don't be afraid to jump into your floor activities. Some floors do crazy stuff (nigh on hazing), but you don't have to participate if you don't want to. But what's the harm in trying? The people in your dorm are going to be the ones you see more often than anyone else, even those you have classes with. If you're going to see them so much, you might as well have fun with it!
Don't be afraid to prank. Now, I don't mean anything dangerous. Just fun things that won't hurt anyone or anything. You'd be surprised at how fast a friendship can be made once you've pranked someone! Plus, if you decide to go to LeTourneau, you'll be attending an engineering school (unless you ask a flight major, in which case it's an aviation school). You'll be amazed and awestruck at some of the epic pranks the engineering students can come up with.
Don't come to LeTourneau with your Ten Year Goal in mind. The school will change you. God will change you.
Get engaged in a local church! There are some really amazing ones, and growing in your relationship with God is more important than anything else you could do on campus.
DON'T SKIP CHAPEL! I know it's easy to, but you'll miss some really good ones and will be scrambling at the end of the semester to complete your chapel credit.
HAVE FUN!
Lynnea from Dallas, TX
Choose either engineering or flight related major when you choose to come here. If you are choosing something other than that, your best bet is to go somewhere else only because I feel as though you can get the same education (easier) for a cheaper price.
