Homecoming 2015: Save the Date

Alumni, families and friends are invited to #comeonhomeLETU for Homecoming & Family Weekend on April 16-18, 2015.

Whether you live across the country or across the street, the Alumni & Parent Relations team hopes you'll be part of this exciting weekend full of LeTourneau traditions and celebrations.

We're excited to celebrate 50 Years of Hootenanny in 2015! This year's performance will surely be the best yet and will conclude with a special reception for our alumni and families.

We are hosting a number of reunions and invite all alumni in and around the reunion years noted to celebrate with us! We're also excited to welcome back members of the Ambulance Service (EMS) who were instrumental in providing excellent medical care for both the LETU and greater Longview community. 

We will see you soon!
