    “Le Moyne has challenged me to think about the idea of men and women for other and to figure out what that means for me.” For Ella DiGiovanni ‘18, serving others is grounded in building community—at home and abroad. Ella values working with people. In high school, she went to El Salvador on two service trips, where she realized traveling, meeting different people, and gaining a global perspective appealed to her. Ella chose to continue developing those passions through a Jesuit education.

    War, religious persecution, ethnic cleansing and other dire situations have forced approximately 65.6 million people worldwide to flee their homes. An estimated 10,000 refugees have moved to Syracuse since 2000, several of whom are students or alumni of the College. Delia Popescu, Ph.D., chair of the Department of Political Science, has followed closely the “patterns of global, structural injustice” that follow the forced movement of people.

    Samantha Peltz ’15 peered at the majestic Icelandic landscape through the lens of a camera, capturing the glaciers, hot springs and mountains with which the nation has become synonymous. Around her, Peltz’s classmates took samples of the soil for their class, Earth’s Global Environment: Iceland. They’d come to the mysterious Nordic island nation to study glacial retreat firsthand. It was their professor, Larry Tanner, Ph.D., who asked Peltz to record their work in the field.

    Le Moyne Makes Movies!


    Yes, Le Moyne makes movies! From writing the script, to casting the actors, to shooting the various scenes, to editing the final cut, Le Moyne students have the opportunity to create their own film – and then to share it with the public. They learn, hone their filmmaking skills, and have a lot of fun along the way!
