Le Moyne College Moves Up to Division I

Le Moyne College accepted an invitation to become a member of the Northeast Conference (NEC) starting with the fall 2023 season. In joining with the eight other institutions who are NEC members, Le Moyne’s 21 NCAA teams moved from Division II to Division I, allowing us to showcase our athletics programs in some of the nation’s largest markets while competing at the highest level of collegiate athletics.

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consecte adipiscing elit. Student-Athlete Spotlight: Catherine Durant

Students don’t have to choose between different parts of their identity or sacrifice part of their dreams on The Heights. Rather, they can embrace who they are and honor who they are becoming by taking advantage of so many opportunities on campus. A prime example of a Dolphin who does that incredibly well is Catherine Durant. With her flair for color, ever-present smile, and commanding personality, it’s hard not to know this impressive student.
