LETU is going into orbit! These senior design students developed a new type of GPS and it's the first time (in history!) that this technology will be launched into space. Follow their story at letsat.org.
P.S.–they printed the pictured satellite prototype on 3D printers they built themselves. #LeTourneauBuilt

We’re reflecting on the friendship between Rev. Billy Graham and our founders this week.
Rev. Graham served on the LETU board from 1961 to 1975, R.G. designed a special building for his crusades, and Mrs. LeTourneau asked Graham to be a speaker in his early days as a pastor at Camp Bethany.
And as many of you know, R.G. gave 90% of his income to the Lord, including being one of Billy Graham’s first financial supporters in ministry.
"R.G. LeTourneau was the only wealthy man I knew in America who might give us consideration. I told him our predicament...two weeks later, a letter came from him with a cashier's check." -Rev. Graham (12 comments)

Our prayers are with the Graham family during this time of loss of Rev. Billy Graham. In addition to being one of our nation’s most faithful evangelists, Rev. Graham was a dear friend of our founders, R.G. and Evelyn LeTourneau. (6 comments)

Kelsie is a junior mechanical engineering student who's back at LETU after spending last semester at Disney World.
No, it wasn't a four-month vacation. After two years of hard work as an engineering student, plenty of prep with our Career Services office and wanting to work at Disney since she was in 6th grade, Kelsie landed a co-op at The Magic Kingdom doing project management.
"LETU's hands-on opportunities allowed me to be more confident and I knew I had the skills to make informed decisions in project management," Kelsie said.
And as you can see, there was time for fun as well–Kelsie's office was right behind Splash Mountain. #LeTourneauBuilt (2 comments)

Experience "Weird Al" like never before Friday, April 20, at the Belcher Center!
"Weird Al" Yankovic burst onto the scene over three decades ago and never looked back. For the first time in his storied career, the world's foremost musical satirist and four-time Grammy-winner foregoes his usual high-octane, big-production show for an intimate evening of music, focusing on original (non-parody) songs from his 14-album catalog. After his 2016 world tour, including venues such as the Hollywood Bowl and Radio City Music Hall, this is a rare opportunity to get up-close and personal with this legendary performer.
Weird Al's most recent album Mandatory Fun was the first comedy album in history to debut at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 chart. In 2018 he will be awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
2018 VIP MEET & GREET
EXPERIENCE TICKET $279, $70, $60, $50 (plus applicable fees)
Purchase your tickets at www.BelcherCenter.com or come by or call the Box Office at (903) 233-3080.

If you think about it, most of your day is spent at work. Recent students have shown that many individuals are not actively engaged with their work. As believers, we are to work as unto the Lord. Finding joy at work makes a difference. Max Anderson examines the cost of engagement and how to find joy. Happy reading!
