Welcome Back with YAC

Here at LETU, the first week of residential classes is finished, and the second week is beginning. We know the start to a semester can be stressful, especially for our new students. That's why we want to make sure every YellowJacket has a chance a chance to get plugged into the LETU community and blow off a little steam while they're at it -- And what better way is there to blow way to do so than by whacking each other with foam poles, careening down giant, inflatable slides and connecting with other students across campus who share similar interests?

Last Friday, the YellowJacket Activity Council (YAC) opened the doors of the Solheim gymnasium for STOMP, our annual back-to-school bash. For LETU's over 70 student organizations, STOMP is a chance to recruit new members. For everyone else, it's a chance to have fun and learn about all the student activities LETU has to offer.

Life on campus is about more than being close to class. It's about building a community, and for many of our students, it's a community that lasts far beyond their time here at LeTourneau.

Whether that community comes in the shape of a group of people who share the same major, an organization of students who play hockey or rugby on the weekends, or just hanging out with a few buddies who live across the hall, we hope that all of our students find ways to make a second home at LETU.
