LeTourneau University is inviting high school students from across the nation to two Fall Preview events this month at the main campus at 2100 S. Mobberly Ave. in Longview, Texas.
The purpose of preview events is for high school students to discover what college life is like and explore the educational opportunities at LeTourneau University.
A Homeschool Preview is Friday, Nov. 9, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Students and their parents will have an opportunity to visit classes and tour the university. LETU is a homeschool friendly university, with one in five of students from a homeschool background. Deadline to register for this free event is Wednesday, Nov. 7.
The Fall Preview begins at 4 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 15, with tours of the LeTourneau University campus. Students will have opportunity to spend the night in a residence hall and, on Friday, Nov. 15, will visit classes and experience the life of a LeTourneau student for a day. The Fall Preview is open for students interested in a variety of majors.
Cost for the Fall Preview $35 and includes all on-campus meals and a T-shirt. Parents are welcome to come, as well, to sit in on sessions about financial aid and student life.

“Visiting universities is an integral part of the student’s process of finding the right college for them,” said Carl Arnold, executive director for Enrollment Services. “Students should come and see if LeTourneau is a place where they could see themselves grow spiritually and be challenged academically. These visits give students a firsthand experience of what LeTourneau has to offer.”
