About Entertainment and Literature Clubs

Academic goals cannot be achieved without the development of the student’s total personality. Since the majority of a student’s time is spent outside of the classroom, extracurricular and co-curricular activities serve as valuable partners with academics in the enhancement of the total college experience. Clubs and organizations provide opportunities for students to meet and interact with others who share their interests. They also provide opportunities for ­students to explore new interests.


Performing Arts
THEATRE

The Boot and Buskin Theatre Club

Founded in 1949, Boot and Buskin is the oldest theatre group on campus and is the primary vehicle for student theatrical activity. There are three mainstage faculty-directed productions each year with participation open to students in all majors. A student staff of 10-12 provide management and technical support to these shows as well as for other events. 

Major Arcana

Great theatre challenges us, inspires us, and moves us. It calls us to look at ourselves and at our place in the world, and to consider how we can best realize our fullest potential. Perhaps most critically, theatre teaches us. To that end, the goal of Major Arcana is theatre of the students, by the students, and for the students and Le Moyne community. Its goal is to provide students with the opportunity to participate in all areas of a theatrical production and to engage them in the theatrical community of Central New York. To accomplish this goal, students produce, direct, and manage all aspects of any Major Arcana production.
