Here at Le Moyne, we want you to feed your passions and add new ones. We want you to have an experience here that will make your story even more vibrant and complex and colorful.

Finding Passion with Community, an interview with president Linda LeMura

Incredible things happen when you connect people and ideas.

A Le Moyne education is about diversity, about the incredible things that happen when you connect people and ideas. Our excellent faculty will help you become an expert in your major, but that’s not all. You’ll swim broadly in other disciplines, looking at the world through different lenses and finding interests you never even knew you had. Le Moyne graduates are excellent nurses, engineers, entrepreneurs, historians, mathematicians – the list goes on. But Le Moyne graduates are nurses who quote Aristotle, entrepreneurs who dabble in poetry, and mathematicians who love Thoreau. Le Moyne graduates have the knowledge of experts, the passion of poets, the eloquence of orators, and the insight of Philosophers.

Believe it or not, Jesuit schools have been doing this for centuries. We call it cura personalis – the care of the whole person. What does that mean to me? It means we want you to bring all of your talent and creativity, your humor and curiosity. We want you to bring your strengths, and even your weaknesses.

For me, watching students succeed from the moment they step onto our campus as prospective students with their families, to being first year students to commencement, that trajectory, that transformation is the most beautiful part of my professional and personal life.”
