At LETU, we know that promoting an environment of academic excellence is essential to any good university experience, but a truly great experience requires much more than that - it requires community. That's why we seek to create a strong community of Christian fellowship here at LETU, and few groups exemplify it better than the Honors College. This past week, the LETU Honors College took a break to welcome in a crowd of new faces, as well as welcomed back a few familiar ones.
The following night, those first year students got a chance to live out their discussions of Christian community when both honors students and faculty who teach honors courses gathered together for the annual Honors Fall BBQ. With all the ingredients for a great get-together - food, fun and fellowship - new students got their first taste of the community that will help shape the next four years of their lives.
The Honors College at LeTourneau is a Christian community of learning that seeks to exemplify the university’s commitment to the integration of faith, learning, and living through rich academic offerings, intentional community formation, and opportunities for leadership and service in the campus, community, and beyond. We're so proud of our incoming honors students and look forward to watching them live this mission during their time at LeTourneau University.

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.
