Membership is open to all students.
Membership in the Democrats Club is open to any member of the Le- Moyne community who desires to meet, listen to and share the ideas of the Democratic Party. Events and activities of the club include an annual student voter registration drive, films, speakers, current event discussion sessions and campaign participation on behalf of Democratic candidates.
International Relations Club
The International Relations Club is open to students of all majors and sponsors activities that develop a greater understanding of international relations. The club sponsors speakers and debates, and selects a team for the annual National Model United Nations simulation in New York City.

The club offers students the opportunity to gain the knowledge and skills necessary to become the leaders of tomorrow.
