New Student Orientation


At LETU, orientation is a crucial part of the first steps into life as a college student. We know this change can be stressful, and we're here to help.

Orientation allows all new students the opportunity to get to know a few classmates, learn about the resources available at LETU and spend some time learning the ins and outs of what it's really like to be a LeTourneau student.

THREE FOCUSES OF ORIENTATION

 

CONFIDENCE

We want you to feel confident in your decision to come to LeTourneau. We have a place for you, and we are glad you are here.

We want the orientation experience to affirm for you that LeTourneau is going to support you in a healthy, Christian environment that challenges your whole person.


COMPETENCE

Life at LeTourneau isn't the same thing as high school. In fact, it isn't quite the same as life at any other university, either.

If you want to make the most of your experience, it's best to know everything that makes LeTourneau unique, everything that's expected of you and all the resources at your disposal.

We want to make sure that when classes start you are prepared and you know where to go and who to talk to whenever you need something.


CONNECTIONS

Building relationships is one of the most important keys to success in college, and that can mean a lot of different things.

Forming relationships with your professors, campus employers and student affairs personnel are all things that help students become a real part of LeTourneau. Making friends with other students on your floor, making friends with your RA, or meeting your residence director count too.

At orientation we want to provide time and opportunities for you to build relationships and begin the process of forging new friendships.

LeTourneau University enrolls students from all over the world, and we are excited to welcome more international students to campus every semester. We recognize that coming to a new country can be an even bigger challenge than coming to a new school. That's why we have extra orientation time set apart just for international students.

This is a good time to meet other international students, and get to know our international student support staff. You will have extra time to buy what you need for your dorm or apartment, set up a bank account, get your paperwork in order, etc. We want to help you get settled so your semester gets off to a great start!
