New Student Orientation

Welcome to the LeTourneau University family!

LETU Orientation is a crucial first step into life as a college student. We know this change can be stressful, and we're here to help.

Orientation allows new students to connect with future classmates, learn about the resources available at LETU, and learn the ins and outs of what it's really like to be a LeTourneau student.




  • Orientation Purpose
  • International Student Orientation
  • Volunteer For NSO


We want you to feel confident in your decision to come to LeTourneau. We have a place for you, and we are glad you are here.

We want the orientation experience to affirm for you that LeTourneau is going to support you in a healthy, Christian environment that challenges your whole person.


Life at LeTourneau isn't the same thing as high school. In fact, it isn't quite the same as life at any other university, either.

If you want to make the most of your experience, it's best to know everything that makes LeTourneau unique, everything that's expected of you and all the resources at your disposal.

We want to make sure that when classes start you are prepared and you know where to go and who to talk to whenever you need something.


Building relationships is one of the most important keys to success in college, and that can mean a lot of different things.

Forming relationships with your professors, campus employers and student affairs personnel are all things that help students become a real part of LeTourneau. Making friends with other students on your floor, making friends with your RA, or meeting your residence director count too.

At orientation we want to provide time and opportunities for you to build relationships and begin the process of forging new friendships.



AUGUST 19-21

International Student Orientation is a time of welcome and semester preparation for all new international students (F-1 and any other category of non-US citizen). ISO gives you the opportunity to meet fellow international students, get to know the campus, go shopping for items you'll need, learn what you need to do to maintain your visa status, meet key faculty and staff, and more. 

*IMPORTANT: As you make your travel plans, please plan to arrive in Longview, Texas, on MONDAY, AUGUST 19. You will not be able to move into your residence hall before this date. The airport code for the East Texas Regional Airport in Longview is GGG. Transportation from the GGG airport to campus will be provided.
