Information for Parents

As a LETU Parent, you are part of a vibrant and unique family. The Alumni & Parent Relations team would love to host you on campus for Homecoming & Family Weekend, Orientation activities, academic showcase events and much more. We are also a resource to you when you're back at home or work and have a question, concern, prayer request or insight to share.  

Please utilize the links above - as well as our contact information below - to familiarize yourself with the LeTourneau community. Update your contact information, purchase a special surprise for your student (birthday cake, Welcome Kit, care package and more!), learn more about upcoming events, get in touch with key faculty and staff across campus and more. Thank you for sharing your student with us!

The Alumni & Parent Relations team created a LeTourneau Parent Guide as a resource for our new families. We've tried to anticipate some of the questions you have and provide a campus overview.

Please take a look at the guide! This booklet is designed for new and prospective parents but may be helpful for returning parents too! We would love feedback from both new and "veteran" LeTourneau parents concerning the questions you have and detail we can help provide. 

We are here to serve your family so don't hesitate to ask questions or share ideas anytime!

Birthday Cakes

Parents - we are your "Happy Birthday!" messenger throughout the academic year! If you would like to send a cake or cupcakes to your student to celebrate their birthday or a special occasion you can order online anytime - sweet!

Finals Kits

Finals are coming! The Alumni and Parent Relations team is again putting Finals Kits together to hand-deliver to students the Friday before finals begin. Finals Kits are $30 and will include sweet and savory snacks, quirky Christmas toys and stress relievers, coffee and hot cocoa, study essentials and much more.
