Walking Campus LeTourneau University is a pedestrian campus, therefore campus community members are required to walk to classes and other campus commitments from parking areas that are specifically assigned for the individual's particular type of campus registration decal. Motor vehicle traffic should be kept to the minimum possible in order to promote the safety of our pedestrian population. Pedestrians and bicyclists should be given right-of-way however it is imperative that pedestrians and bicyclists not assume that such right-of-way is being given by an approaching motorist.
