An LETU Education Recognized as Quality Investment

We have received much positive feedback this fall on the quality of the LeTourneau educational experience. Many sources now rate colleges, and it is always encouraging to see the good things that others notice about us.

In case you missed all the good news, here's a summary:

Washington Monthly's 2016 college guide identified "Best Bang for the Buck" schools that "help non-wealthy students attain marketable degrees at affordable prices." LETU was ranked number 4 among all universities in the South. And we were the top ranked university in Texas.

Kiplinger included LETU among their top 100 "Best Values in Private Colleges." We were 76 on their nationwide list. The Kiplinger 100 included only five private universities in Texas: Rice, Trinity, SMU, the University of Dallas, and LETU.

U.S. News and World Report included LETU among their top tier of universities for the 23rd year this fall. Among "Best Regional Universities in the West," LETU was ranked 27 which is up from 32 last year. In their collection of "Great Schools Great Prices" LETU was the ranked 4 in the West. U.S. News also included us at number 15 on their ranking of "Best Colleges for Veterans." Also, our engineering program moved up in the rankings; from 39 last year up to 31 this year in their ranking of "Best Engineering Programs in the United States."

SmartAsset included LETU in their rankings of the 100 top universities for starting salary of graduates. We were ranked number 2 among Texas private universities behind only Rice.

This summer, Online Christian Colleges included LETU in their "50 Most Beautiful Christian Campuses." We were number 19.

Increasingly, these college ratings are more about significant outcomes like graduate salaries and less about reputation or endowment. Taken together, one can see that LETU is a good choice for students who understand that college is an investment in one's future success.
