3 College Senior

Party Scene: From what I heard, it's okay.

3 College Senior

Scholarships: The school processes financial aid in a timely manner, but not many scholarships are offered by the school for non-traditional students like myself.

3 College Senior

Campus Food: As far as I know the food is good. I assume it is good, since my own adviser told me about the cafeteria, in case I was ever to visit the actual campus.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: Although I do not live on campus, based on what is said by others, the campus housing seems to be above acceptable.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I've never heard of any serious incidents on campus. I feel very safe. In fact, sometimes I feel like campus security is overly protective. There's not much privacy if you're out alone with someone of the opposite sex after dark.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Intramurals are pretty big but very few people here care about sports at all. At superbowl "parties" the majority of the people in attendance don't know who is playing and are just there for the commercials and nachos.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I haven't lived off campus but most people I know that do it are very satisfied.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: If you have a car there's a number of options on the loop. Locals can point out good local businesses like The Butcher Shop. The YAC card has a decent number of discounts.

2 College Sophomore

Administration: There are a number of issues on campus that administration chooses to ignore. When students complain, they are generally told they are being unChrist-like and should therefore stop complaining and be grateful for what they have. There is very little forgiveness for things the administration views severely (like sex) but much less strictness for issues like longboard theft. The administration has a very narrow view of what a good Christian student should look like and leave little room for other lifestyles (think strict Southern Baptist versus free-thinking nondenominational).

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: This school is definitely expensive but if you have decent grades and test scores, you should be able to get decent scholarships. Visit the financial aid office during preview visits to make a good impression on the staff there. If you show them how much you want to go to school and plead your case well (no need to go overboard with sob stories or anything) you should be in a good spot. Just don't forget that unless you win Heritage, you WILL leave with debt.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Food: As someone with health issues, it's almost impossible it eat well with the available options. The food is often greasy and leaves a bad taste in the mouth. Food poisoning is common and it's hard to predict which foods with be the culprit. The soda machines break frequently and the staff can be rude and unfriendly (some are very nice).

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Floor and dorm communities are really great. If you don't fit in with your floor, you'll probably find another floor that you do fit with and you can just switch next year. Everyone is very friendly and supportive. The only complaint is that some RAs get a little too enthusiastic about monitoring couple activity during visitation hours (which are too short in my opinion). Guys and girls are allowed to hangout but if there's a known couple, they get special attention even if they're just sitting and talking or watching a movie.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I still live on campus, but I know I wouldn't want to live anywhere close to this campus if I chose to go off campus, just because the neighborhood is not the best. I do hear off campus students talking about how difficult it is to get off-campus approval. You have to be of senior status, so really you have one year of classes left at that point. In most cases, that is not worth trying to find a place off campus. The most popular option is trying to find a place in the on-campus apartments, because it is much cheaper than living in the dorms. This is still hard to get into.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are plenty of great restaurants in town, but most of them are a decent drive away from campus. The only things close to campus that I would go to are fast food, because the other restaurants are in a shady part of town, much like our campus. The campus is pretty safe, but I try to not linger directly off campus very much. Most of the restaurants I visit are Mexican, and they serve pretty good food. Pricing is okay at most places, some of the better places are much too pricey for me at this stage in my life.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: In the residence halls and in the school of aeronautical science, the administration holds to their word. Attendance is required in all FAA classes, with large punishments to final grades for tardies and absences. The honor code is also upheld in the school of Aeronautical Science. I have heard stories about the honor code being violated in specific labs here, but I was not a witness to this, nor was I in that lab, so my view on that is invalid.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I have no problems getting the financial aid I need, from the source of the aid. The problem I have comes with the school. I can apply and get a 3rd party student loan in only 2-3 days. It takes FOREVER for the school to do their part. This summer it took me almost a month to get everything in, and I almost missed the registration deadline because of it. The same thing happened again over Christmas break. The loan I got in the summer was supposed to last me both semesters, but the school didn't have my flight fees on my bill, so I was about $14000 short of what I needed. Then when I got that taken care of at Christmas, I had some flight overages to pay, which the second loan I received covered. I could not be approved for classes until I paid those charges out of pocket to the school. Our registration deadline for the spring semester was December 24th, at 5pm. I had everything in that evening and according to my bill, I was supposed to be getting about $1300 back from the school. When the bills came around in February, and I got my refund back from the school, I only got $300 back because they added the $1000 charge for books. In my mind, all charges should also be in by that deadline. You can't just spring charges on me like that, especially if I have already paid for everything by the deadline. That really angers me, and next semester I will be going to the financial aid/students accounts offices if this happens again.

Party Scene: I am rating this based on what most people would define as "parties." LeTourneau is not a party school. If you get caught partying, with alcohol or drugs.... you get kicked out. I would say in my dorm, we have parties, but they are different than most parties. We do board games or video games, just hang out, shower people, drag people across campus and throw them into the pond--stuff like that. We consider it a part even though it isn't that way to most people outside LeTourneau.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Overall, the food is decent. At the main dining hall, the staff thinks they are making great food, but it is mediocre at best. The pizza is awful, the crust is usually quite doughy. Pork is very dry most of the time, chicken usually is dry unless you get a piece straight off the grill. The food at the Hive is much better, but with the issue of having to wait a long time to get your food. The Hive is extremely understaffed, especially on Sunday nights, when the dining hall is closed. Sometimes we have to wait 45 minutes to an hour to get a pizza or chicken tender basket, or something else that should take 5-10 minutes at most.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Well, the dorm I am staying in is the oldest on campus. It isn't much to look at. We have community bathrooms on the floor and communal showers, but this is the only dorm on campus where our bathrooms are cleaned for us. The rooms are decent in size. What this dorm lacks in cosmetic appeal, it makes up for in floor bonding. The newest dorm on campus has less bonding between the residents. It almost seems like a correlation--the worse the dorm, the better the floor bonding. I cannot really rate the proximity to classes very well because I am an aviation major. All of my non gen-ed classes are a 20 minute drive away at our school's aviation center. I have one, maybe two classes per year on the main campus, and they are right across the street from my dorm, a great perk when we get our torrential downpours in the late fall.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: As an athlete students here don't respect nor understand athletes

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Almost all students live on campus off campus options are limited

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Longview has all of your typical chain resturaunts but they are kinda far from campus.

2 College Freshman

Administration: Visitation hours are very strictly enforced and they're short. Drinking is banned on or off campus and if caught harsh punishment is to be expected.

1 College Freshman

Party Scene: There really is no parties. Campus rules ban all alcohol on or off campus regardless of age.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The Hive is decent in a pinch but saga gets old fast
