It’s no surprise that the academic experiences outside your college classrooms are sometimes the most transformative ones – the ones that spark lifelong passions and career callings. Often, opportunities with your peers and faculty members based in research, career development, entrepreneurship – or in programs like learning communities – can inspire you differently than a lecture or studying for a test. 

At Le Moyne, you’ll find many programs anchored in creating intentional communities to foster your goals and dreams.

Small School Feel With Big School Opportunities

Home to unique opportunities, the Heights connects you with friends and professors beyond the classroom walls to inspire you to think about what's possible.


Le Moyne’s nationally recognized four-year Manresa program emphasizes career development and exploration of personal values through small group mentoring. Participants can expect a guaranteed internship placement and meaningful fellowship with their peers and members of the Le Moyne community. New groups start every semester.

First-Year Learning Communities

Learning Communities at Le Moyne take some of the anxieties of first-year students and put them to ease right away: Participants live with and share classes with a group of students with a common interest—a shared major or interest.

Our Community of Entrepreneurs

The Keenan Center supports the lifecycle of dreams and ideas. Want to create a podcast? Launch a clothing line? Develop a patent? Participants get one-on-one mentorship with experienced business professionals, real-world experience and support from fellow entrepreneurs.

Stempower for Women

This leading-edge program brings together like-minded individuals to help women accelerate their success in the professional world. Participants get a peer mentor, visibility to career options and the paths of successful women in STEM careers and access to employers.

ERIE21 Tech Training

ERIE21 facilitates tech-centered pathways that equip students with the skills and confidence to thrive in an ever-changing workforce. Through mentorship, coaching and employer access, ERIE21 helps students connect to a community of change agents.


The Le Moyne College Collegiate Science and Technology Entry Program (CSTEP) prepares you for professional license or STEM careers. Funded through the NYS Education Department, the program provides historically underrepresented and economically disadvantaged students services and support to prepare them for entry into CSTEP-targeted professions.

I liked Manresa because I could connect with other students who were unsure about their career and life paths, just as I was. Students should join Manresa because they will learn more about themselves by reflecting on everyday things. They will grow closer to and make friendships with people in their class year who they wouldn't normally get to meet in classes.”
