LETU To Pay Baggage Fees For Incoming Students Next Fall

Tue, Jul 15 2008

College students with baggage, both of the emotional and physical variety, arrive at college campuses in droves every fall. But students arriving at LeTourneau University this fall will find a little help. 
The university took notice that airlines are charging more money for tickets and baggage fees in light of unprecedented high costs of fuel. So, to help offset these extra costs, the university is offering to lighten the load by paying $15 toward baggage fees for incoming students.
“It seems like our incoming students who travel to LETU from all across the country are really being hit hard this year, from fuel surcharges on airline flights to baggage fees for their luggage,” said Linda Fitzhugh, vice president for enrollment services. “We thought we’d lighten the load for them by offering to help carry their bags.”
The university is asking students to take their airline tickets to their admissions counselors to have $15 credited to their student accounts.
