From the School

Founded by the Society of Jesus in 1946, Le Moyne is the second youngest of the twenty-eight Jesuit colleges and universities in the United States. Its emphasis is on the education of the whole person and on the search for meaning and value as integral parts of an intellectual life. Learning, leadership and service are the hallmarks of a Le Moyne College education. Those values are evident in the College's undergraduate majors in more than 30 areas of study, as well as in its pre-professional studies and graduate programs in business administration, education, nursing, occupational therapy, information systems and physician assistant studies.

Le Moyne's personal approach to education is reflected in the quality of contact between students and faculty members. With approximately 150 full-time faculty members, Le Moyne has a student-faculty ratio of 13:1 and an average class size of 22.

From The School

While each major department has its own sequence requirements for the minimum 120 credit hours needed for the Le Moyne degree, the College is convinced that there is a fundamental intellectual discipline that should characterize the graduate of a superior liberal arts college. Le Moyne’s interdisciplinary core curriculum provides the foundation by including studies of English language and literature, mathematics, philosophy, history, theology and religion, natural science, and social science to reflect international trends within a liberal arts education. For exceptional students, Le Moyne offers an integral honors program that includes an interdisciplinary humanities sequence as well as departmental honors courses. The study-abroad program allows qualified students to spend a semester or year in numerous countries around the world. Le Moyne College has study-abroad programs or affiliations in Czech Republic, Dominican Republic, England, Germany, Ireland, Scotland, and Spain. Students can also use partner programs to study in locations such as Australia, Costa Rica, Egypt, France, Italy, Japan, and South Africa. Le Moyne is a participant in the sixty-member New York State Visiting Student Program. As part of the mission of preparing future leaders, Le Moyne College places a strong emphasis on career preparation through internships and other forms of experiential education. Academic departments and the Office of Career Advising and Development both provide programs and services for students interested in interning part time and full time, both locally and in major cities such as New York and Washington, D.C. The Offices of Service Learning and the Academic Deans are also involved in experiential education to promote learning outside the classroom. In the sciences, students take part in campus research with faculty mentors. Others receive assistance in pursuing outstanding opportunities off campus in leading research laboratories and health-care settings. Through the College’s long-standing relationship with The Washington Center for Internships and Academic Seminars, students from all majors complete full-time semester-long internships in Washington, D.C., with government, business, or major nonprofit organizations. Faculty members in the Department of Political Science assist students interested in opportunities in Albany, N.Y., the state’s seat of government, with either the State Senate or Assembly. Finally, the education programs at Le Moyne put students into school classrooms starting immediately as freshmen and continuing each year until graduation. Le Moyne students may enroll in Army and Air Force ROTC programs in conjunction with Syracuse University.

Students Say

Founded in 1946, Syracuse’s Le Moyne College is a 3,500-student private college that “combines Jesuit teachings and traditions while engaging all students into their own development as an individual, part of the community and the world as a whole.” Those who go to Le Moyne cite the “unparalleled” feeling of community and that the constant sense that the “personable and endearing administrators” “actually care about you” as the best part of their time here, and the “focus on community service” helps drive the foundational Jesuit principles home.

One of Le Moyne’s greatest strengths is the amount of help available to students. “Between office hours, the Academic Support Center and friendly upperclassmen, your questions will be answered!” promises a student. “Small intimate class sizes” mean that “professors are always willing to help students,” and nothing is taught by TAs so “it is easy to foster a personal connection with you professors.” Classes are “intellectually challenging,” the honors program is “very worthwhile,” and the majority of professors really “try to bring the material to life.” They “bring in outside information that connects with the material we are learning, which I find helps spark discussions with every person in the class.” “I have learned so much in so little time. And I have evolved a thirst for more,” says a freshman chemistry major.

Strong nursing and business programs stand out in this “active learning community,” as does the desire to keep the college “a place of high moral values.” Some of the facilities on school such as the science labs or library “could be renovated,” but luckily nearly all the classrooms are accessible within buildings connected by tunnels and hallways, eliminating the need to travel outside from class to class (a huge benefit in the freezing, and long, Central NY winters).

Overall

From The School

A wide range of student-directed activities, athletics, clubs, and service organizations complement the academic experience. Intramural sports are very popular with Le Moyne students; nearly 85 percent of the students participate. Le Moyne also has twenty-one NCAA intercollegiate teams (ten for men and eleven for women). Between 80 and 85 percent of students live in residence halls, apartments, and town houses on campus. The Residence Hall Councils and the Le Moyne Student Programming Board organize a variety of campus activities, including concerts, dances, a weekly film series, student talent programs, and special lectures as well as off-campus trips and skiing excursions.

The College encourages student leadership in all activities with positions open to students in all class years. Students are represented by a Student Government Association and have formal representation through the senate on most College-wide committees involved in decision making and policy formation.

Students Say

Many students come from cities and small towns in New York State, are "family-oriented,""Catholic," and "most likely white." Everyone is "extremely friendly," though LeMoyne has a great deal of cliques, although "one can cre­ ate friends easily" and said cliques "interact far more fluidly" than in high school. Most are "usually dressed nicely and seem prepared for class," and do the standard work during the week, go out on weekends routine. "A lot of students here are athletes as well," and many "bond over sports, or the per­ forming arts." The "wide range" of people on campus means there are "many who are up all night partying non-stop from Thursday until Sunday, then there are those who still grab coloring books and sit down to watch Disney movies for fun."

Overview

From The School

Le Moyne's 160-plus acre, tree-lined campus is located in a residential setting 10 minutes from downtown Syracuse, the heart of New York state, whose metropolitan population is about 700,000. Just a few miles outside the city are the rolling hills, picturesque lakes, and miles of open country for which central New York is renowned.

Students Say

Life in Syracuse "offers so many opportunities," and students revel in their four years in a "perfect community-small, generous, and service oriented." Almost all students are required to live on campus all four years, which creates "a cozy campus with a homey atmosphere" (not to mention beautiful). Parking is definitely on students' wish lists, but the dining facilities receive rare high marks: "The food is great and there is a good variety."

The school keeps students pleasantly busy, and "offers a lot of activities around the campus [so] you will never get bored." LeMoyne offers "free tick­ ets to concerts and SU basketball games" and "puts on a lot of fun events such as movie nights...comedy improv groups, and other performers." "Partying is a big factor here," and students often head up to Syracuse or to the campus bar on weekends. However, there is "a pretty sizable portion of students who don't like to go out" and there are always programs going on at night, such as "a snow tubing trip, bowling trip, and an on-campus Pinterest Live! Event...in addition to Trivia Night at the on-campus pub, of course!"

Sustainability

Le Moyne College, a small Jesuit liberal arts college in Syracuse, New York, empowers its students to be “conscientious world citizens” when it comes to environmental responsibility. Le Moyne’s College Committee for Environmental Sustainability monitors and has reduced the college’s greenhouse gas emissions for every year since 2003, and works to educate students and the public about sustainability. The college is working continually to reduce the college’s negative environmental impact overall. Le Moyne recently achieved a LEED Gold certification on its new science building, and has been working since 2009 to implement energy-conserving LED lighting inside campus buildings. In its ongoing effort to reduce energy consumption and emissions, which the college sees as a spiritual imperative, the campus actively monitors sustainability practices in new construction as well as in electricity efficiency, landscaping, cleaning, operations, waste, and on-campus vehicles. It utilizes features like low flow appliances, Limited Range Thermostats, and a natural gas Steam Plant. The college’s dining program also composts food waste and has implemented a number of other creative sustainability initiatives including Weigh the Waste events, trayless dining, and recycling fryer oil into biofuel. Green majors at Le Moyne include biochemistry, biological sciences, environmental science systems, and environmental studies.
