Does it cost anything to come and compete?
LeTourneau does not charge students a fee to compete in the Heritage Scholarship Competition. Once on campus, meals and lodging are free for the competing students. Parents should expect to pay for a hotel and meals if they choose to attend with their student. Some area hotels offer LeTourneau discounts for parents.
Do I have to come to Longview to compete?
Yes. Due to the nature of the competition, students are required to be on campus for the event.
Should my parents come with me?
Absolutely. We highly encourage parents to come and learn more about LeTourneau.
What does "professional attire" mean?
Here are the minimums.
Men: A button down shirt, tie and appropriate pants to match.
Women: Dress pants or skirt and an appropriate top to match.
What do I need to bring to campus with me?
Aside from the professional attire (see above) for the interview, you should pack like it's a three-day vacation. It can be chilly (it has snowed in the past), so pack a jacket or sweater and keep checking the weather. A sleeping bag is probably a good idea unless you like sleeping on the floor.
