5 College Junior

Party Scene: This stuff doesn't happen at this school! Bars/Clubs around the campus are scary and dangerous because of the campus' location. As far as parties and nightlife I know there are house parties off campus but don't know much more than that. Transportation, you definitely need a car here or a friend with a car because that's basically how you get around anywhere off campus. On campus the buildings are close enough to walk everywhere.

Academics: I am more focused on are the prof's good at teaching their courses and are they willing to help students if they are struggling. I have found this to be true... Registration process is decent but not as simple as it could be. the workload here can be overwhelming sometime and it constantly seems like you are always studying but that depends on your major too. Popular study areas in my opinion could be improved. Besides the small library there are not many other quiet areas to study...

4 College Junior

Diversity: The most segregation that will happen on this campus is for certain religious views, but it is minimal. Gays and other LGBT members keep quiet about their relationship preferences, if they even attend school here??? Other than that there is no racial, economic, political issues.

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: There are occasional instances where students have partaken in drugs/alcohol but never on campus! That kind of stuff doesn't happen on campus and the campus is relatively clean and safe

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love our professors here! They are always willing to help you as long as you put the work in! Class sizes are excellent too!

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Safety on campus has increased. However, South Longview surrounds the campus and this is the not so good part of town. Off campus is not safe to go walking around town in especially at night! In my opinion it would be nice to see a gate guard who must check IDs to get on campus.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The quality of career center services is fairly low. They do not really help you find the best path get you into a job. I feel like you more so have to do a lot of research yourself and try to piece something together in order to get your foot in the door as far as jobs go.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Some of the best halls to live in are either Gilbert or South Hall. I loved the layout of Gilbert hall and that it is an all girls dorm. However, It would be nicer if the hall was renovated or updated a bit. South also has it's perks. It is nice and usually clean however, the only downside to living there is the walls are super thin and there is no place to study within the dorm.

Athletics: I was somewhat disappointed in LeTourneau University's Athletic Facilities when I first arrived there. I thought the gym "workout Rooms" would be bigger than they actually are. I think it is put together well enough for the athletes here on campus. But combine those people with every other average joe who just wants to go to the gym without seeing a super trim body at every angle; forget it...

It almost seems as if we are in too close quarters. It would also be nice to have some more useful classes such as yoga or boxing.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I really like my school because of the professor to student ratio. It is also a small private college which makes it nice because it makes it a little easier to get to know people. My school is unique in the way that it is very faith based as well as academic based. It also plays a big role in promoting international studies for students which I think is really great.

I am in nursing school currently and I love our program here. It is small and close knit which makes learning easier.

There are pro's and con's to every school I'm sure. Overall, I think LeTourneau is the school for me. However, it can be hard sometimes when you don't live in a college friendly town.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I like the small class sizes it's a more personal learning style. The professors are helpful and knowledgable.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Even though the cost is high, it does pay off. I know students are generally offered a job right after graduation and sometimes before.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Compared to the community outside of campus, I feel rather safe on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I enjoy my dorm room, the only thing is I think the room inspections could be once a month or so.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: The athletics are gradually becoming more challenging and successful. The sports in general are not very high-ranking here, but I believe there is potential.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Sometimes the school feels like you still live with your parents. College is a time for freedom and learning from your mistakes, but LeTourneau can still "mommy" you with its many rules and strictness.

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I don't know much about the Greek life other than that occasionally they host parties but I haven't gone to any of them.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Last semester I took a Bible class that covered a lot that I already knew but I always felt like I'd learned something new because my professor gave us lots of tidbits about the historical context or word choices in certain passages that I hadn't heard before. I have also had several other professors who were passionate about their classes and made lectures fun to listen to.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: For engineering, at least, students get lots of hands on experience right from the start. As a result, many students have been able to get internships as early as the summer after their first year and recruiters from companies like John Deere, SpaceX and Garmin actively seek to hire LeTourneau grads. I haven't heard much about job/intern prospects for other majors but I did notice at the career fair that the majority of companies were seeking engineers and aviation majors.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: On campus, it's great! I have no worries about walking across campus by myself at night. It probably would be good to be cautious though because the neighborhood surrounding campus isn't so safe to walk in alone at night and sometimes gunshots can be heard. That said, it wouldn't be impossible for someone with malicious intents to come on campus harass people and it has happened in the past but it's not talked about a lot and I don't know how long ago that was.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: All three floors of my dorm do a lot together and have a made a world of difference in my experience at LeTourneau. Whether I need a study break or I have free time to kill, there's usually someone around to hang out with. And when I don't know how I'll get everything done, there's always someone to encourage me or help me finish faster.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Thirteen sports are offered at LeTourneau but don't expect the rest of campus to be deserted when there's a game. Intramural sports are much more successful because the lower expectations and time commitment allows busy students to participate more easily. Unfortunately, because sports take so much time, few student athletes are able to be involved with other activities. People have recognized the problem though and are working to find ways for student athletes to be involved when they're not traveling for games.

Personally, I haven't found athletic facilities to be lacking but I don't use them regularly and athletes could probably assess them better.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: From the first week at LeTourneau I knew I'd chosen the right school. Yeah, Texas was as hot as ever but my roommate assignment was perfect and I have many good friends both in and out of my dorm. As an engineer, I got to build my own 3D printer the very first semester and I've had several other hands on projects for classes including welding, lathing, lego robotics, 3D modeling, and much more! When classes got tough, professors and friends alike were there to support me and when presentations went well, they celebrated, too. I loved it so much that I stayed three more weeks to do research. LeTourneau also has a group just for kids who've grown up in other cultures and even though it's been a few years since I lived overseas, it was great to meet other students with similar experiences and talk about issues that you don't experience if you've grown up in one culture your whole life. And of course, if you're looking for a place to get involved and serve through leadership, LeTourneau's got plenty of opportunities for you to join others or start something new!

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: The campus is not on the best side of town, but once you enter the campus, the environment is completely different. There are rarely problems with unwanted visitors on campus.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love the school and the overall atmosphere. The students are very friendly and the classes are amazing.
