    The members of the Class of 2018 are set to make their mark on the world. Some will be heading back to the classroom to study medicine Georgetown University, public administration at Columbia University, bio-geo-chemistry at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and law at the University of William and Mary. Many will be entering the workforce, crunching the numbers at the “Big Four” accounting firm EY, spreading the magic at the Walt Disney Co., and so much more.

    Student Research at Le Moyne College


    Exploring new ideas. Asking insightful questions. Looking at things differently. At Le Moyne, that’s what we do best. Our students are encouraged to conduct thoughtful, original research on the topics that are most meaningful to them, whether that’s particle physics, Palestinian poetry, or the paintings of artist Frida Kahlo. Giving our students the opportunity to conduct research and share their results is a critical part of their formation. And it nourishes their souls.
