What do you like most about Le Moyne? I love watching students’ transformation over their four years at Le Moyne and being part of community that truly cares about our students and each other.

Favorite hobbies:
 I love getting lost in a great book! I also enjoy swimming/kayaking/jet skiing at our family cottage in the Adirondacks in the summer and cross-country skiing, snow shoeing and sledding in the winter. In the fall and spring, I love walking through our parks.

Involvement in college?
 I was involved in the residence hall association, was a resident assistant, interned at a community newspaper that gave me my own column for a summer, and worked in the dining hall. As an MBA graduate student, I took part in a short-term study abroad in Poland as part of my capstone experience.

Favorite thing about Syracuse:
The change of seasons. The vibrant colors in the leaves in the fall are breathtaking!

What do you like about Le Moyne:
As soon as you set foot on campus, you can feel the true sense of community among the students, faculty and staff.

Favorite hobbies:
Listening to music, reading, watching movies, shopping.

Involvement in college:
I chose to be active on campus to create some balance in my life. Not only was I contributing to campus life in my own way through performances as part of Lawrence International or starting a new student organization on campus at Clarkson, but I was also developing skill sets that have served me in my post academic life. I had great experiences through both my graduate and undergraduate life that I would have missed out on had I not incorporated non-academic activities into my schedule.

Favorite thing about Syracuse:
Destiny USA shopping mall, and Syracuse’s proximity to Canada.

What do you like most about Le Moyne? Community is always the first word that comes to mind when explaining my admiration for Le Moyne and a very similar response of others when asked this question. The reason why we have the community that we have at Le Moyne College is very simple ... we are Jesuit! Being part of a tradition that is nearly 500 years old with a reputation for a rigorous standard of education and an emphasis on the "whole person" is something that is extremely special. The Le Moyne College community has embraced the mission and ideology of Jesuit education as we strive for excellence in everything that we do (commonly known as Magis in the Jesuit world) on a daily basis.

Favorite hobbies: Spending time with the family and friends is something that is very important to me and this typically involves gathering around a large meal. My sister (and her family) are my next door neighbors, so I am usually trying to keep up with my niece and nephews. I also enjoy visiting new and different restaurants in the area and the occasional Italian bakery (or two). I am very much a homebody and enjoy a good book/movie or watching/attending several sporting events (especially anything Syracuse, the Yankees or the NY Giants) with family and friends. I am also in the process of improving my cooking skills as I learn from the best cook around​ - ​
my mother!

Involvement in college: Outside of my responsibilities in the classroom, I was able to get involved in several different activities taking place on campus and throughout the local community. I was a member of Student Government as one of our class officers, played intercollegiate athletics along with several intramural sports and was a member of a Service Scholarship program that provided ample amount of opportunities to participate in community service programs. All of these experiences greatly contributed to the foundation of my college experience along with the development of great friendships with my classmates.

Favorite thing about Syracuse:
Syracuse is a smaller city, but one that stills offers many of the amenities that a larger metropolitan area can offer. It is centrally located, which makes trips to cities like Boston, New York City and Philadelphia (to name a few) only a few hours worth of a car ride away. Most importantly - it's home! I was born and raised in the area with the vast majority of my family located in and around the Syracuse area. A home cooked meal is always right around the corner!

What do you like most about Le Moyne? From the moment I first stepped on campus as a freshman, I knew that Le Moyne was a special place. Coming from a small school in a rural area, I thought adjusting to a college in the city would be challenging. At Le Moyne, I found that the faculty and staff are dedicated to and truly care about the students, I created lasting friendships with peers and roommates, and the welcoming and warm nature of the Le Moyne community made it feel like home.

Favorite hobbies:
Spending time with family, cooking, reading, kayaking, playing volleyball.

Involvement in college?
I was a member of the psychology club and psi chi (psychology national honor society); both were great opportunities to spend time with my peers and professors in settings beyond the classroom. I was also involved in the B.A.S.I.C. group and intramural volleyball on campus, allowing me to meet and interact with people who shared similar interests and passions. I also had the opportunity of working on campus at the Dolphin Den where I got to know and interact with faculty, staff, and students of the Le Moyne community.

Favorite thing about Syracuse:
I love the centrality of the city of Syracuse. No matter your interests or favorite pastimes, Syracuse has something to offer for everyone to enjoy.

What do you like about Le Moyne? As an alum of Le Moyne, I love the community that exists here. Not a day goes by where I do not run into faculty, staff, and/or students that I have created meaningful, positive relationships with! 

Favorite hobbies:
Traveling, listening to music, learning to play the violin, moderating the Le Moyne Dolphin Steppers.

Involvement in college:
During my time at Le Moyne I was involved in the programming board (LSPB), was a RA, worked in the Dolphin Den and C-Store, worked in various departments on campus (Campus Life and Leadership, Career Advising and Development), and was on the step team.

Favorite thing about Syracuse: Coming from NYC, I love that Syracuse gives me the opportunity to have the best of both worlds. I can have peace and quiet if I need to wind down or if I am craving commotion and noise I can find that too!

What do you like most about Le Moyne? My favorite thing about Le Moyne isn't really a thing, it's people. The people at Le Moyne College make up a vibrant community. During my time as a student, I made strong and supportive friendships and met talented, brilliant people who challenged my worldview and made me better through the process. My professors worked with me in the classroom and taught me research habits, academic skills, and taught me to question. Outside of the classroom, my professors got to know me as a person, supported me, and inspired me. Le Moyne is large enough to continue to meet new people, but small enough to foster genuine connections that transcend the college experience and carry on even after graduation. 

Favorite hobbies: I love visiting cities that I've never seen before and scratching countries off of my scratch map. I enjoy voraciously reading novels, essays, poetry, screenplays, works in translation and more. I write short stories and poetry, and paint, draw and graphic design. I love being involved in theatre in any capacity, and am a member of the New York City-based artist collective, The Chaos Collective. I also am passionate about being an active member of my community. 

Involvement in college? During my time at Le Moyne I was very active in the Performing Arts Center! I was the graphic designer for Boot n' Buskin, vice president of the Le Moyne College Improv Club, worked behind the scenes of the shows, as well as performed on stage. Some of my favorite shows that I worked on were: Boot n' Buskin's She Kills Monsters in which I played Tilly (a role for which I received an Irene Ryan Nomination through the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival), Macbeth performed in conjunction with the orchestra and with women playing all roles, and The Visit, the inaugural performance for Boot n' Buskin's Laboratory Theatre. I also read papers at the annual Literature and Culture Conference and attended events with the English Club. I was inducted into Tau Sigma, the national honor society for transfer students, Alpha Sigma Nu, the honor society for Jesuit College and Universities, and Sigma Tau Delta, the international English honor society. I also worked in the Admissions Office and as a tour guide.

Favorite thing about Syracuse: I love the local businesses, restaurants, and experiences that Syracuse has to offer! Some of my personal favorite restaurants are Funk n' Waffles, Dorian's Gourmet Pizza and Deli, and Pastabilities. I enjoy seeing live concerts at the Westcott Theater, checking out new exhibits or watching a movie outside at the Everson Museum, and attending the Westcott Street Cultural Fair in the fall. Syracuse also has a burgeoning theatre scene and I love to catch local productions as well as touring Broadway productions, right in Syracuse!

What do you like most about Le Moyne? Le Moyne has an incredibly unique sense of community. It is something that I felt immediately upon setting foot on campus as a future 'Phin, even before I became a student here. Full disclosure: Le Moyne was the only college I applied to! I simply knew that Le Moyne was a very distinctive place, and one where I would have a home. We are an incredibly tight-knit campus, and people here truly care about one another. Le Moyne is a relatively small school, which means that the people here - from students, to professors, to staff members - are aware of what is going on around campus, and actually care. You also have the opportunity to get to know absolutely everybody and certainly feel as though you do, but despite that fact, you meet new people all the time! But again, I can't say enough that the LMC community truly cares about each other; Le Moyne has a habit of taking care of their own, which I don't think is easy to find in a college environment, or anywhere, really.

Favorite hobbies: I'm the kind of person that will spend hours upon hours just reading, put my book down, turn my light off, and then turn it back on 20 minutes later and finish the book! Reading and writing are my true passion, which I channeled into my education here at Le Moyne as an English major. I've been an avid equestrian since I was four years old, which my parents believed would be just a phase - not so much, much to their chagrin! I'm a huge runner as well, and love trying new workouts to help keep my mind and body firing at full capacity. I also love spending summer days at my family's lake house, whether I'm working like a dog around the camp, driving the boat or skiing behind it, or sleeping on the dock with my golden retrievers, Banks and Maddux!

Involvement in college? First and probably foremost, I was a member of our Women's soccer team, where I made my best friends. I was also a part of our English club, I played a plethora of intramural sports, and I lived on campus all four of my years as a student here, which allowed me to take advantage of everything Le Moyne has to offer. 

Favorite thing about Syracuse: If I had to pick one (and I know that this is cheating!) it'd have to be the duality of the city! Syracuse is a fantastic small city that is a surprising cultural hub, from Armory Square, to the Landmark Theatre and several other local theaters, to Marshall St. on SU's campus. You hardly need to throw a stone to find a great Mom and Pop restaurant to eat at, a local coffee shop to study at, or a place to entertain yourself that is unique and off the beaten path. Then, just outside the city there are outdoorsy things to do: hiking at Green Lakes, skiing at Greek Peak, Song Mountain, or Labrador Mountain, or running along the canal, among other things. There are just so many gems to be found in Syracuse (including Le Moyne!).

What do you like most about Le Moyne? My favorite thing about Le Moyne would have to be the people. As an alumna, Le Moyne has brought many blessings to my life beside my Jesuit education, many of which are the life-long friends I have made and continue to make as a representative of the College.

Favorite hobbies: Besides traveling and discovering new places, I really love all kinds of sporting events, from watching my kids play lacrosse and field hockey with their high school teams to cheering on the NY Jets and the Yankees any chance I can get. When it’s time to relax, the beach is one of my favorite places to be.

Involvement in college: Club lacrosse, a contributor to The Dolphin newspaper, and a countless number of on-campus events.

What do you like most about Le Moyne? During my first campus visit, I noticed that everyone smiled and greeted one another. This genuine happiness continued throughout my time at Le Moyne, and is due to the true sense of connection, friendship and importance among the students, faculty and staff.

Favorite hobbies:I have been actively involved in several organizations in my town and like giving back to my community. I also enjoy various seasonal activities (kayaking, going to the beach, playing tennis, skiing, ice skating), as well as reading and spending lots of time with my children. When not driving them around town to various activities, my family can be found in the backyard with our five chickens!

Involvement in college? My primary extracurricular activity was playing on the lacrosse team. When I joined, it was the beginning of the intercollegiate program and I’ve really enjoyed watching the program’s tremendous growth and success! I truly believe that getting involved in college life (in any activity you are passionate about) is the best way to enhance your college experience.

Favorite thing about Syracuse?Syracuse is a great college town – it is big enough to offer anything you need (an airport, shopping, dining, businesses, etc.) but small enough that people are friendly, it is affordable (which is helpful for students!) and easily accessible.

What do you like about Le Moyne: Le Moyne has been an important part of my life for several decades and the college core values continues to be enhanced by an unsurpassed educational community of students, faculty, staff and alumni. And because of this community, it’s the perfect place to grow as a person and discover your passions.

Favorite hobbies: I spend most of my hobby time with family activities, being a sports fanatic, and enjoying travel, golf, hiking and biking. All this activity gets one hungry and I enjoy the terrific food and cultural experiences in Syracuse throughout the year!

Involvement in college: Attending a college that supported both my academic interests, as well as my other passions, was important to me and encouraged by my parents. Campus media, internships, career initiating jobs, varsity athletics, and community service all shaped my college experience. Mentors who were faculty, other students, coaches and college staff encouraged my interests and motivated me to broaden my experiences.

Favorite thing about Syracuse: Syracuse has many different personalities including a major metropolitan city for internships and culture; a college town for the excitement and vibrancy of Le Moyne alumni and student involvement; ethnically diverse for food and expanded experiences; as well as sporting activities like hiking, biking, major spectator sports, and skiing. And Le Moyne students have access to it all! One of the most important stops when getting to know Le Moyne is a making a stop on “Tipp Hill” at Coleman’s Irish Pub on the west side of Syracuse.

What do you like most about Le Moyne? I find a lot of comfort in the small community up on The Heights. I think Le Moyne students have the best of both words with the proximity to downtown amenities and the copious green (or white!) space on Le Moyne’s campus. I love seeing students enjoying the quad during all four seasons, appreciating each other’s company, and building relationships that are the foundation of this special community.

Favorite hobbies: Creative at heart, I’m drawn to anything that allows me to think with design. I grew up painting (mostly oils) and have found a love for practical crafts whether that’s building home décor, painting sings, or knitting a throw blanket! Cooking is also something I look forward to every day. I love looking around my pantry and fridge to figure out what I could combine for an awesome meal. In other words- Pinterest is my favorite thing ever.

Involvement in college? I was an active class representative in our Student Government Association, a sister of Kappa Delta Sorority (social), and a member of a few academic honor societies. During my junior year, I traveled abroad and spent about 5 months attending the University of Otago in Dunedin, New Zealand. Most importantly, I worked as a Student Ambassador/Tour Guide in our Admission Office! It was the most rewarding campus job!

Favorite thing about Syracuse? Coming from rural Pennsylvania, it’s new for me to be this close to so many stores and restaurants; I’ve definitely enjoyed the convenience! Syracuse is also central to a lot of New York State Parks. Whether you like to run, fish, ski, or hike to some waterfalls, you’re never too far away from a new adventure.
