3 College Freshman

Administration: Letourneau University is a drug free, alcohol free, no smoking campus. Professors and students are expected to refrain from these activities off-campus as well. Aviation classes are very strict about attendance, with every missed class resulting in a letter grade reduction. Bible and English classes are strict about attendance as well, but provide much more leeway. Math and science professors sometimes don't even take the roll after the first week or two of classes.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Athletics, especially intramurals, are great for bonding with fellow students and taking a break from studying and getting some exercise. It's also great for having fun, showing school spirit, and getting free t-shirts and other stuff. There are usually different leagues in intramurals based on whether they are more competitive or more for fun. Several clubs meet regularly to practice sports like ultimate frisbee, parkour, volleyball, and rugby.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Sometimes, people will post notes on billboards in some of the main buildings about offers for housing for sale or rent. Depending on the side of town where a student find a house, the neighborhood can vary from relatively safe to not very safe at all. The price of most of the housing offers I've seen seems to usually be much cheaper than on-campus housing, and some parts of town nearby are nice, respectable housing communities.

2 College Freshman

Party Scene: Letourneau is an academic school, so a lot of people spend time studying instead of going to parties. Sometimes a holiday will lead to some fun contests and entertainment, a floor will host a movie night, a society will have a cookout, or YAC will have events, but generally, if students want fun, they often make it for themselves. Sometimes, students will go out to parties or floors will go to restaurants with the brother/sister floor, but if students are looking for parties, they have most likely come to the wrong place.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I got a good grade on my ACT, so the financial aid department immediately offered me the highest academic scholarship they could, and state grants were easy enough to negotiate with a bit of paperwork. To get more financial aid, it is a good idea to talk to an academic advisor, department chair, or financial aid representative and keep up the grades.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The icecream at the Hive is especially good, and the servers are usually very generous. The 14 meals a week plan is probably the best if you eat at SAGA most of the time, with lots of flex money to spend elsewhere. I can easily have 30 dollars left at the end of the semester to buy lots of finals pizza.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Although room and board is quite expensive at Letourneau, it's great to be able to be close to classes and campus activities. Tyler Hall is close to Longview Hall, which is where a lot of the introductory classes are held, but it's farther away from the gym and the cafe (which everyone calls SAGA) and is the only dorm with community showers. South Hall is close to SAGA and the Hive, and houses men and women on separate floors. The Trinities and Quads are a little bit isolated, and the buildings are very old. Gilbert, Thomas, and Davis have very nice furnishings.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The school is in a less nice area of town, so you would have to drive 15 minutes for nice housing. Some housing options are posted independently on bulletin boards.

College Freshman

Party Scene: The traditional college "party scene" is basically nonexistent at the school. Alcohol is prohibited for students or faculty at any time. If there are "parties", off campus would be your best option.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Students are given a card at the beginning of the year with local discounts. Fairly decent variety but most restaurants are about 10-15 minutes from campus.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Lots of rules, some excessive. Very strict about "open hours" in the dorms- no opposite gender for the majority of the week and many rules when they are allowed.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Most students received scholarships- ACT/SAT scores are very important!

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Very repetitive food but there are some option options; long wait at the Hive; good coffee at Common Grounds

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Community life is great; dorms are decently sized; all dorms close to classes and other buildings

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).
