From the School

Le Moyne College is a four-year, coeducational Jesuit college of approximately 2,800 full-time undergraduate students that uniquely balances a comprehensive liberal arts education with preparation for specific career paths or graduate study.

Founded 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, arts 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 20.

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).

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 Le Moyne has a great deal of cliques, although "one can create 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 performing 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."

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." Le Moyne offers "free tickets 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.
