| LeTourneau is a fabulous school with amazing people attending. I made some amazing friends--friendships that will last. The faculty is made of great people. Some professors have interesting teaching methods (Dr. DeBoer) and other are incredibly enthusiastic (Dr. Ball). |
Unfortunately, it is quite expensive. There are some scholarships you are eligible to receive such as the Heritage, Presidential, Dean's and Honors. I had the Dean's scholarship, paid 9000 a year, but was unable to gather enough funds to continue attending.
One absolute negative about the school is its outdated, small library.
As much as I loved this school, it is not for everyone. For one thing, the majority of the population is male...great for us gals...sorta. "The odds are good, but the goods are odd."

| The school's mission and atmosphere is very focused - Christianity. If you're homeschooled, can't cut the apron strings, live at church, eat/sleep/breath the Bible (though probably don't actually read it), know all the right church words and actions (95% not scripturally based) then you're a perfect match to the majority of the student body. If you have real world experience, are an adult (able to take care of yourself, including thinking for yourself) this is not the school for you. Everyone is very friendly and kind, but closeminded. New opinions and other views are squashed as quickly as possible. FYI - you'll be required to attend chapel services 36 times in a semester, MWF, 10:50-11:30am. That equals to 288 added hours to your degree requirements. If you don't go to chapel enough times, you're put on academic probation; do it again, and you're thrown out. Each class is started with a devotion and prayer. At about $800/credit hour, those 5-10 minute devotions are costing you $66 - $133 a pop. Papers and/or projects relating the class to your walk with Christ are also requried in each class. Even nonpastoral degree programs require 4 biblical courses.The academics, however, are outstanding. Professors have an open door policy, there's free tutoring from students who have passed the class previously with an A, and acess to computer labs M-F if there's not a class in them. |
