Students interested in learning more about LeTourneau University can visit and log in to get the scoop on scholarships and financial aid, college life, programs and much more during a special online event.
 LeTourneau University will be one of hundreds of colleges that prospective students and parents can chat with admissions counselors online during an event that is like a virtual college tour November 4-7, 2009 at www.CollegeWeekLive.com. The purpose is for high school students and their parents to learn more about the colleges their students are interested in. It gives students real time with an admissions counselor, right from the comfort of their own homes. 
LETU Director of Admissions James Townsend will co-host an “Ask an Admissions Officer” session with Carrie Murr of Schreiner University in Kerrville, Texas, on the first day of the event from 3 to 4 p.m.
LETU admissions counselors will be online from 1 p.m. to 9 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday; and from 1 to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday – all times are Central Time zone.  For parents whose students are interested in looking at many schools, the live, online chat event will make sense to their pocketbooks.
