Le Moyne College

Le Moyne College is a Catholic, Jesuit institution offering comprehensive programs rooted in the liberal arts and sciences. Built on the nearly 500-year-old Jesuit history of academic excellence, Le Moyne seeks to nurture the "whole person." Its values-centered education prepares students for leadership and service by integrating community-based experiences with academic programs. This tradition - that intellectual effort can and should lead to action - helps students discover their place in life and applies knowledge toward making a difference. One of 28 Jesuit colleges and universities in the U.S., Le Moyne's inclusive learning environment offers 32 undergraduate majors, and more than 40 programs in the arts, humanities, sciences, business and education. A teaching-centered College, Le Moyne provides a variety of multi-disciplinary research opportunities through internships and seminars. Le Moyne's undergraduate enrollment of 2,900 supports small classes with a student-to-teacher ratio of 13:1, a size that fosters a sense of community evident in its First-Year Residential Learning Communities. Here, groups of students attend classes together, live in the same residence halls and participate in social and cultural events as well as community service activities. Le Moyne also offers more than 80 student clubs and organizations. Students and faculty take part in talks and forums that spark debate on social, political and ethical issues. For students who want a more concentrated academic program, Integral Honors confers on its graduates the highest degree offered, requiring seniors to complete a final honors project in collaboration with a faculty advisor. The Madden School of Business features MBA and MSIS programs and three centers of excellence - entrepreneurship; leadership and business ethics, and; global business. The Purcell School of Professional Studies houses a growing array of master's programs in nursing, occupational therapy, physician assistant studies, and education.In 2016, for the fourth straight year, Le Moyne was named by The Princeton Review as one of the nations best institutions for undergraduate education, according to "The Best 381 Colleges" guide.The College unveiled a new core curriculum in Fall 2013. With a more interdisciplinary, quantitative and global focus, the new core integrates instruction in fields traditionally associated with the liberal arts, including history and philosophy, with critical skills such as mathematics and writing. A centerpiece is the first-year seminar; with 32 sections in all, these courses explore topics as varied as the history of mourning and grief, the philosophy of employment, and the nature of words.Located on a picturesque 160-acre campus, the College has recently opened a new home for the Madden School, a 48,000-square-foot science building, a totally refurbished Coyne Science Center and Dolphin Den and Le Moyne Plaza student spaces. The recreation center houses a competition-size pool, jogging track, racquetball courts, and a fitness center. A member of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), Le Moyne fields a total of 21 intercollegiate teams, which compete at the Division II level as a member of the Northeast-10 Athletic Conference, with two new facilities - a multi-purpose turf field and softball field - added in 2010 and 2012, respectively. In 2016, 2013, 2007, 2006 and 2004, the men's lacrosse team captured the NCAA Division II title. Beyond the academic and social campus offerings, students at Le Moyne find its Central New York location a major attraction, as it is close to major cities such as New York, Toronto, Montreal and Boston. With Le Moyne's strong academic and community setting, students connect on all levels -local, regional and global. Le Moyne's personal approach supports students in a rapidly changing world by developing their skills to meet future challenges, and excel in both their personal and professional lives.
