Meet Our Alumni

In educating the Whole Artist, we prepare our students for graduate studies and work in many professional careers. Read about what some of our alumni have to say about the visual arts program at Le Moyne and how it prepared them for life and work after college.

Yiying Chua '16

As an undergrad at Le Moyne, I minored in visual art. I’ve always used art as a creative outlet to express my feelings, and particularly appreciate abstract painting and photography. Currently, I’m pursuing a Masters of Science in Occupational Therapy, and as a therapist, I would love to incorporate art as a form of healing.

Taylor Glausen '15

I am currently working on my Ph.D. in Microbiology and Immunology at the University at Buffalo. As a Biology major at LMC, I found art as an escape from the detail-focused classes and labs that consumed a majority of my time. Art in all areas on campus helped me keep my head on straight, and my nerves calmed.

I am about to graduate with my Master of Arts in Writing, and I am an interns at Union Park press in Wellesley, Massachusetts. I’ve always loved photography, and becoming an art minor at Le Moyne gave me a chance to develop that talent into a workable skill. I’ve photographed weddings, concerts, portraits, and sports and even published a few shots. While it’s a side business to my career in writing, it’s great to be able to make money doing something as expressive and enjoyable as photography.

I am currently pursuing a Master’s degree in Library and Information Science with a specialization in School Media at Syracuse University. My experience of the Arts at Le Moyne College reaffirmed my love of creative and intellectual exploration. I am now becoming a librarian to foster and guide that exploration in many others so they may know the joy I have as an aspiring lifelong learner and artist.

I am an educator at an NGO called the Working Boys center in Quito, Ecuador. Art taught me that you just have to go with the flow and see where it takes you. A lot of the artwork I did at Le Moyne involved me needing to change/adapt, and look at my project in a new light which is a useful skill to have especially when working with children.

I am currently pursuing a Master's degree in Mental Health Counseling at the University of Rochester. The Arts give you the chance to express yourself and surround yourself with people who share the same interests. It is a perfect outlet to relieve stress and have fun!
