The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed.

I grew up on the great plains of North America.   When you stand on a snow covered field under a brilliant blue sky and feel the bite of an Arctic wind against your face, you feel like you are on the top of the world.  

Where can one go from the top?  Where else but LeTourneau University!  

LeTourneau, a place where faith brings us together and ingenuity sets us apart. 

If you are interested in matters of faith, ingenuity, science, technology, and how all these things interface in our private and public lives, you too may want to leave your high place and study and work under the warm embrace of the East Texas sun. 

Why would you want to join us?  Well check out the chemistry and physics programs below.  If you find something of interest and have questions, contact us and we can talk.   

You may find that you have a positive reaction to what LeTourneau offers.  This would indicate that, at LeTourneau, your heart and mind may be transformed and you will become a new human product and a transforming element for the world!
