Get to know Le Moyne College
At Le Moyne, students discover who they are as fun-loving citizens who are driven and full of spirit. In time, they also find who they are to become: leaders, experts and compassionate advocates for those in need.
EXCLUSIVE OPPORTUNITIES TO GROW
Students get involved in ways they would never have imagined.

Some take trips to New York City with their professors, getting the most out of their core curriculum’s “outside the classroom” experience. Others take classes taught by the Dr. Douglas Egerton, a history professor who is one of the nation’s preeminent Abraham Lincoln scholars.

At Le Moyne, success is not just an outcome; it’s a way of living. It’s not simply what one does, but why, and for whom. It’s setting goals. It’s embracing the unknown, trusting in oneself, and never settling for second-best. It’s the tireless, constant pursuit of the best possible version of oneself.
Le Moyne is proud to foster outstanding communicators, collaborators, and critical thinkers who live their lives with meaning. Among Le Moyne’s outstanding alumni is KPMG Chairman’s Award-winner Matt Cox (’09), who was inspired to found a new nonprofit organization after working with 18 active 1- and 2-year-olds in South America. Kate Waltman (’13) began a life of service and simplicity after graduating from Le Moyne by teaching English and working at a food pantry in Japan. Andrew Lunetta (‘12) used the entrepreneurial spirit and passion for social justice that he gained from Le Moyne to establish three different programs to aid the hungry and homeless.
