WELCOME FROM THE VP OF STUDENT AFFAIRS & DEAN OF STUDENTS

 
Dear Students,
 
It is my pleasure to welcome you to LeTourneau University. As a student here, you have the opportunity to allow Christ to form and shape your life. Much of that shaping will take place through your involvement with those who love him in this community. I pray that you will embrace and engage this intentional community — faculty, staff, administration, Trustees and students all seeking Christ together — and allow it to shape every area of life.
 
We believe that the best college experiences encourage growth not only in the classroom, but in many areas of your life. My goal is that your time at LETU will help bring about growth in seven areas that are critical to wellness:

Through your involvement in many aspects of our campus environment, you will be challenged and spurred on toward growth. Your faculty and staff want to partner with you and live life alongside you as you develop the skills and disciplines needed to become the person God has created you to be. We believe that all of your growth should be grounded in your relationship with Christ and will be enhanced by your spiritual growth. It is not an additional area in which we hope to help you grow. Your spiritual life is foundational to all other areas of your life. Our highest goal is that your experience at LETU will help you become more like Jesus Christ.

In the gospel of John, Jesus said, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy, I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.” Student Life is dedicated to helping you discover and develop that abundant life in all aspects of your time at LETU.
 
Knowing our students is the best part of my job, and I look forward to building relationships with each of you. Please don’t hesitate to stop by my office on the second floor of the Allen Family Student Center, call me at 903-233-4410, or email me at kristymorgan@letu.edu. I am excited to move forward together in following Jesus Christ as He guides all aspects of our lives.

Sincerely,

Kristy Morgan, Ph.D.
Vice President of Student Affairs & Dean of Students

WELCOME FROM THE STUDENT BODY PRESIDENT

Hey Jackets!

We are so glad you are here to take part in the work that God is doing LeTourneau University. LeTourneau is a unique place because of its vision and its people. We are blessed to be here both in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and in the name of education. It is an extreme privilege to be able to attend a university that has the Gospel at its forefront. That is the key principle we want to keep in mind as we go about our day-to-day business in classes, cultivate relationships, and grow in our walks with Christ. Ultimately, we desire to be a community focused on mutual growth in the spiritual, physical, and mental aspects of our lives. Philippians 2 gives us the image of what we desire to be as both students of LeTourneau University and followers of Christ.

“So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, 2 complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. 3 Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. 4 Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, 6 who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7 but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. 8 And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. 9 Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, 10 so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”

I believe that God is using our time here at LETU to mold us into Christians who take part in the mission of Christ through the different vocations and callings we are now pursuing. It is my prayer that you would feel God’s presence, goodness, faithfulness, steadfastness, and graciousness in the time you spend here and that He would prepare you to take the Gospel of Jesus Christ to every classroom, dorm, athletic endeavor, workplace and nation

Blessings,

Josh Raies
Student Body President
