What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have found the classes challenging, in a good way, and the people friendly. There is a wonderful culture and I really enjoy my time thier. If there was one thing, I transferred from their online program to thier on-campus program and the transition process was not very smooth. It took quite a few emails, phone calls, and conversations to get it sorted out but everyone was super sweet about it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

LeTourneau University is set on a beautiful campus the allows the mind to escape from the stresses of studying. It has plenty of activities like the game room, the gym, or the pond to go fishing can also relax you. But when it comes down to getting your education LeTourneau's Faculty is great, seems every time I was i need of help my professor was available. If not so many of the other professors are so knowledgeable that across the degree fields the questions never went unanswered. I think there is no better place to receive a quality education!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

LeTourneau University is a great place for anyone who wants to grow mentally and spiritually. Students have high standards to meet that strengthen them mentally, and the casual (yet competitive) community sports culture is fun for even the nerds. But there is also the focus of community to the point that even the professors are respectable and relatable.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Although the campus might be a bit on the small side, LeTourneau makes up for its relative smallness with community. There is always some sort of exciting event going on, whether it is a concert, a large scale Nerf war, caroling and hot chocolate, or a puppy-petting session. Sure, it's a religious school, but it doesn't force religion onto you, but takes a far more relaxed stance towards its students religious status.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

A great college academically. Not a party college, but heavily scouted by companies. If you don't mind the mandatory chapel or bible classes then it is a great college for getting a job. Professors are aprocable and care about your success. It is by no means an easy college load but it is possible to do as long as you diligently work at it.

Great school for aviation management degree. Professors are knowledgeable of the subject matter and respond quickly to emails. Global student opportunities for students who are not able to live on campus. My LETU student website is easy to use and navigate.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

2018 Grad here about give you my honest opinion of LeTourneau. I was full 4-year residential student who was part of the Engineering program, so my review is taken from that perspective. Short summary: LETU is a very academically challenging school with a small campus feel to it, an environment that encourages you in your walk with Christ, and some fantastic students/faculty. It is however plagued by many other factors. Overall I'd give it 2.5/5 stars. Explanation below. Pros: • Very friendly students. You can easily make life-long friends here. • Most faculty genuinely care about you and are willing to help and invest in you. I cannot overemphasize this point enough, though see con 2. • The atmosphere is one that encourages believers in their walk with Christ. A predominately Christian body of students also plays a large role in this. • Hands-on education. Just a good education overall that really forces you to learn. • Well established reputation among many local companies/schools/etc. Makes it easier to find a job. • Labs are open and accessible to undergrads, something not seen at many other colleges. • Though some may complain, the food is actually decent. Repetitive? Yes. Mom's home cooking? Absolutely not. But for college food it's not bad and they're still improving. • Pretty campus. Also felt very safe on campus (off-campus not so much). • Smaller student body, combined with many activities that are intentionally aimed at helping you meet people, really help freshmen make friends quickly. • A great FREE tutoring center. • An extremely helpful career services center. • Intramurals, YAC events, free recreational facilities, the new student center, and other campus activities are great ways to stay active. There are more of course, but that is a high level summary of LETU’s strengths. Cons: This is the part I have a hard time writing, because I loved LETU my first 2 years and I want to see it thrive, but the longer I was there the more frustrated I got with many things. Unlike the pros section, I tried to rank these in order of importance so maybe it'll help you make a more informed decision. 1) Administration is ruining this school. They don't listen to the students, never communicate to the students why they make the choices they do, are firing the best profs that LETU has, and above all: they time and time again have shown that they are against the Engineering department. I could go on and on with example after example about why this is my opinion, but you’d need to talk with an honest Engineering upperclassmen student in person to fully understand it. 2) The best professors are slowly leaving or being fired. Keep in mind I'm speaking from an Engineering perspective, though I've heard similar stories from students in other programs. What's more, the professors they've been hiring to replace them have little to no teaching experience, and many students have started failing historically easy classes due to extremely ineffective profs. It's truly is a shame to see one of LETU's greatest pros slowly turn into one of its greatest cons. 3) Residence Life does not care about your opinion as a student. Have an issue with a newly implemented rule or would like to propose a change to the old rules? They don’t care. You could try emailing them to voice your opinion, you could try going into their offices, you could make a petition and get a few hundred signatures. They still won't care. They are also intentionally trying to kill floor cultures which is one of the best parts about LETU dorm life (i.e. they didn't like the floor culture of one floor so much, that they intentionally did not give that floor any freshmen for 2 years. They also continually threaten you with fines) 4) One personal to me. The financial aid department is not there to help you get aid. In fact, they’ll actually fight you to keep you from getting aid. I personally had to fight them 3 different times to get financial aid, but they will not give you any sort of grants or scholarships, nor deem you eligible for OUTSIDE aid, unless they absolutely have to. Best advice I can give you is to talk to upperclassmen about what sources of financial aid they’ve found because LETU’s department will not help you. 5) Lab equipment is often 10+ years old, falling apart, jerry-rigged/held together with duct tape, and a never-ending source of frustration when working on projects. You will spend significant portions of your time fixing equipment that needed to be replaced years ago. 6) A huge disconnect between the athletic and non-athletic students on campus. Athletes are often stereotyped by non-athletes because of this. Admittedly this has been getting better, but it is far from good. 7) Partially unfair of me to write this since LETU didn’t have a head Chaplin during my last 2 years, but chapels are basically pointless. 70% provide little to no value, 20% are entertaining at least, and about 10% actually helped me in my spiritual walk. There are many more small frustrations that add up, but some may just be my personal preferences and ultimately small nuisances will exist at any college, thus I won’t include them. Hopefully this review gives you a better overall understanding of LETU. In general, it used to be good, as of 2018 it was just kinda meh, and it was slowly getting worse. I surely hope that they’ve changed since I left.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have been a student at Letourneau University for a year now. I enjoy that it is a good christian campus and I like the majority of the students. My problem with Letourneau is that the campus food is very low quality and typically either over/under-cooked.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

LeTourneau University is a great place to start your future. The professors are very approachable. The class sizes are small to ensure that everyone learns what they need to know for the real world. Everyone is genuinely nice and they seek God in their every day life. Overall, best campus I have visited.
