WELCOME FROM THE VP FOR STUDENT AFFAIRS

Dear Students,
 
It is our 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. We 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. Our 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 our jobs, and we look forward to building relationships with each of you. Please don’t hesitate to stop by our offices on the second floor of the Allen Family Student Center, or call or email us. We are excited to move forward together in following Jesus Christ as He guides all aspects of our lives.

Sincerely,

Steve Conn, Ph.D.

WELCOME FROM THE STUDENT BODY PRESIDENT

Hey Jackets!

I am so glad to welcome you to another fruitful year of work and learning at LeTourneau University. It is a privilege to be able to learn alongside each of you knowing that you are here for a specific, God given purpose. Never take for granted the blessing that this university is. I challenge you to cherish every moment you have in your time here. You will grow and be stretched in ways you never knew possible, but I encourage you to remember that your work is not in vain.

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
