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.
This non-political organization is dedicated to working on behalf of prisoners of conscience. Our goals are to help in the work that the organization carries out and to allow students to learn about the world situation regarding prisoners of conscience. Membership is open to the entire Le Moyne community.
Chronic Illness Awareness Club
An estimated 60 percent of American adults live with a chronic illness, such as diabetes, hypertension or cancer. It can be enormously challenging and sometimes isolating for these individuals, who are our friends, neighbors and family members. The Chronic Illness Awareness Club was created with the goal of promoting a greater understanding of chronic conditions and bringing visibility to often invisible illnesses. The club hosts fun events, such as movie and trivia nights and mindfulness sessions. It provides a space for those who may suffer from a chronic illness and their supporters, as well as for those who wish to enhance their visibility.
Creating Awareness and Reaching for Equality (CARE)
The objective of CARE is to provide the Le Moyne College Community with information on Gay/Lesbian/Bisexual/Transsexual/Questioning (GLBTQ) issues and concerns. We hope that circulating such information will lead to a greater understanding of the GLBTQ community, which will in turn aid the struggle against homophobia itself.
Habitat for Humanity
Through fundraising, education, and building assistance, Le Moyne’s chapter of Habitat for Humanity works with the Syracuse chapter and Habitat for Humanity International to forward the mission of providing adequate housing and creating healthy communities for those in need.
Making a peanut butter and jelly sandwich; it sounds simple. And on the surface, it is. But as the members of Ignatian Ignite know, making a PB and J is also a way to provide nourishment to those who urgently need it, to find a sense of purpose, and to better understand the community we share. These “sandwich makers” as they are known gather regularly to make lunches for a local homeless shelter. They put a little bit of good out in the world – two pieces of bread at a time.
Le Moyne Democrats
Le Moyne Democrats is for students of all majors who are interested in becoming part of and expanding the Democratic Party at the local, state and national level. The club deals with current political events as well as the great history of the Democratic Party.
Le Moyne College Republicans
This organization is for Le Moyne College students interested in the politics of the Republican Party. Among its goals are the development of the political skills and leadership abilities needed for the future of the party and the community; the recruitment of members of the club and the Republican Party; and the election of Republicans at all levels of government. Membership is open to all students.
Student Environmental Coalition / F.O.R.C.E.S
