Le Moyne College is a Catholic, Jesuit institution offering comprehensive programs rooted in the liberal arts and sciences. Built on a rich 450-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 United States, Le Moyne's inclusive learning offers 31 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 2,300 supports small classes with a student-to-teacher ratio of 12:1, a size that fosters a sense of community evident in its First-Year Residential Learning Communities. Here, groups of students attend classes together and live in the same residence halls. They participate in social and cultural events as well as community service activities. All of these experiences closely integrate a student's academic and social life.
In remaining connected to the world at large, the College's Center for Peace and Global Studies allows students to link the educational process with ethics, values and globalization. Students and faculty take part in forums that spark debate on political and social issues. Our newly launched School of Business, which has received accreditation by AACSB, features three centers of excellence - on entrepreneurship, global leadership and ethical business practices.
For students who want a more concentrated academic program, the Integral Honors Program confers upon its graduates the highest degree Le Moyne offers. This challenging program requires seniors to complete a final honors project in collaboration with a faculty advisor.
Le Moyne's outstanding programs are enhanced by its picturesque 160-acre campus. Since 2010, the College has added a 48,000-square-foot science building, and two facilities that enhance the vibrancy and social space for students - the Dolphin Den and the Le Moyne Plaza. A state-of-the-art performing arts center and recreation center are places for students to relax and socialize. In addition, the recreation center houses a competition size pool, jogging track, tennis, volleyball and racquetball courts, and a fitness center. A member of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), Le Moyne fields a total of 17 intercollegiate teams, which compete at the Division II level as a member of the Northeast-10 Athletic Conference. In 2007, 2006 and 2004, the men's lacrosse team captured the NCAA Division II title. In 2003, Le Moyne was honored with the USA Today/NCAA Academic Achievement Award, signifying the highest freshman graduation rate among nearly 300 Division II colleges and universities.
Beyond the academic and social campus offerings, students at Le Moyne find its Central New York location a major attraction.
