Crystal Simmons '14
Administrative Assistant

simmocr@lemoyne.edu
When Crystal first started college at Morrisville State College, she was intent on becoming a diet technician. She transferred to Le Moyne and changed her major to communications, where she flourished. It was through the guidance of staff helping her hone in on her strengths and passions that helped her make the switch. Through this experience, she learned the lesson that sometimes it’s just as important to know what you don’t want to do as it is to know what you do want to do.
