LOC is a small college, but big on education. It's like nothing that I have ever experienced, very unique. I love the staff, the environment, and the learning process.

I've visited Le Moyne Owen several times and I can honestly say its a great school. They help you get everything on track before you start. Also they make you feel welcomed especially if you're an incoming freshman.
