I was surprised to see how much such a small school had to offer. On top of their small class sizes and close-knit community vibe that they give off to everyone, fellow students and teachers alike are always ready and willing to help their students with whatever it is that they may need, and that will truly go a long way. Even if you are an undeclared student, your academic advisers promise to do everything they can to encourage you and help you to find just what it is that you would love to do with life after Le Moyne.

At first I really wasn't into the idea of going to school so close to home. In fact, I hated the fact that most of my friends were going to be hours away, while I was stuck here. But as soon as I went for my first visit on campus, I knew I was wrong to have such a bad attitude about this school. The small class sizes, easy access to everything on campus and abundance of on-campus activities make it feel like you're not even home! Plus, the atmosphere is so welcoming, and everyone is just so friendly, I immediately felt right at home.
Bang for the buck
Living in Syracuse, but still wanting to feel like I was away in school, I decided to live on campus. Times are economically difficult just about everywhere, but I didn't quite realize how ill prepared I was to pay for the cost of living on campus versus commuting. Nevertheless, you're still getting a great experience. It just costs a little more.
Great for these types of students
I would recommend Le Moyne for any student who wants the feeling of being away at school without actually being too far away from home. It's also a very safe setting for those students who particularly need one-on-one interaction with their teachers, advisers, etc. in order to be more confident, thus being more successful. At Le Moyne, you instantly know that all these people want is to see you succeed.

Even though this is a private school, Le Moyne is known to give out plenty of scholarships to help you afford it.
Tips for prospective students
Don't slack on your admissions essay, I had mine looked over by a current Le Moyne student and in return I got a bunch of scholarships from the school.

At Le Moyne since it is a small school all the teachers know you on a personal level, and are very understanding. Teachers make sure that you are understanding the lessons and if you need extra help most of the time they are available for help during their office hours. Also most teachers are understanding about athletes missing classes due to travel time and games. A lot of them are available to help them out after class and help them catch up on the lessons that they missed.
Am enjoying being here
I am enjoying being at Le Moyne because from the minute you walk in there are constantly people around. Within the first week you have a lot of chances to get to know the other kids living in your dorm. Also the R.A's are always around to help you out and most are extremely nice.
Tips for prospective students
If your interested in a good small private school then Le Moyne is the school for you. It has the right number of students where you can know a majority of the students who go there and still have a lot of privacy.
Great for these types of students
Le Moyne is for the student that is dedicated and wants to achieve a lot after graduation. Le Moyne produces some of the most successful graduates. They have a great education program as well. The teachers are also dedicated they care a lot about the students success.

The size of the classes at Le Moyne will definitely help my studies. It feels more like a lesson or a one-on-one rather than a dull lecture.
Will enjoy being here
I had a blast on my first and second campus visits. I never felt intimidated when I walked in. The students and staff all sound very excited for the '11-'12 freshmen to show up, and that feeling is contagious! The staff also tries hard at solving dilemmas students may have, and they sounds very professional when handling them.
Bang for the buck
When you show interest in Le moyne, they show interest in you. So much interest, that they will try and find as much scholarship money as they can muster for you to be eligible to attend. It's great.
Tips for prospective students
If you don't think you're getting enough financial aid, talk to them. You'd be surprised how much more you can get after they hear more about you.
Great for these types of students
Students looking for a small school with that familiar family feel to it. It can get pretty brutal in the winter, so if you detest snow it may have an impact on your decision.

From my visits, Le Moyne has been a very welcoming and informative environment. Although you may need to be switched over a few times to different departments, they have bent over backwards to accommodate you.
Will enjoy being here
I will enjoy being a student, I hope, due to its convenient location and tremendously flexible schedules.
Bang for the buck
Although it is almost as pricey as a handful of those ivy league schools, Le Moyne's intention is one of the strongest. They help keep you informed in several areas instead of just one.
Tips for prospective students
Thoroughly examine and meditate upon your true expectations for your future. Do not be persuaded to go somewhere you truly do not wish to go.
Great for these types of students
Great for creative people who think outside the box and push themselves to learn and absorb the most.

This is a great school. The classes are interesting and you are required to take many different subjects to get a very well rounded education. The professors are great are really helpful and there is always a least one professor who you can always go to for help. You also learn so much outside of the classroom.
Am enjoying being here
It is a great college to attend. The dorms are nice and well taken care of. THe food is good, but there aren't many choices. There are always activities going on and there are great opportunities to attend different activities off campus at a discounted price. Overall, it is a really nice placce to attend and they really take good care of their students.
Bang for the buck
For the price of this college, I'm getting a really good education. Le Moyne is giving me all the tools I am going to need to be successful in life and you can't put a price on that. There are so many opportunities and connections that Le Moyne gives that it is worth every penny that you pay.
Great for these types of students
It is a great school for people who want a smaller community feeling. It's a small school and has small class sizes, very rarily are there lecture type classes. Anyone looking for a more interactive learning experience should look here.

Bang for the buck

All the student that have applied and have been accepted to Le Moyne College will learn as much as they possible can. As long as they take in what the teachers teach and take advantage of the resources available. What comes from Le Moyne is a great education, as long as the student allows for it.
Will enjoy being here
Parents, teachers, family members, and students will all enjoy Le Moyne. The campus is beautiful, the people are friendly, the sports are good to watch, and the activities are fun. Le Moyne offers all things to accommodate every ones needs and wants.
Bang for the buck
A good education always comes with a big price, but with this college the offer as much finacial aid they can possibly give. Scholarships are available and they have a finacial aid office that will help will everything a student needs.
Tips for prospective students
Take advantage of the resources available, they have tutors, great library,and excellent teachers. Don't waste all the good right in front of you.
Great for these types of students
Le Moyne is great for all types of students, just always have your hear a 100% into a higher level of education.

In three sentences
Lemoyne is a very comfortable setting for a college. The process used to accept students has shown to create a very friendly atmosphere. I have already made about a dozen new friends with more students (freshman and upper classmates) than I did in four years of high school. I feel like im part of a big family.
Tips for prospective students
Be open minded, ask a lot of questions, get involved in your college and the students and staff will feel like family.
Academic Rigor
Alot more work than high school. Rate as a 4.
Dorm Life
Not in a dorm room but visit all the new friends I have made and it feels awesome to be part of a team. 5
Food and Dining
I don't eat at the college. 3
What to do for fun
So many things to choose from. The college has many events scheduled and the student body has created additional events for students to participate in. Its never boring even for a commuter.
Bang for the buck
College is very expensive anyway but Lemoyne allows you to receive a top notch education with a lot of help for after graduation placement. 5
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
Dolphy day ! Lmoyne Dolphins party hardy at end of spring semester to wind down for finals.
Great for these types of students
Biology, Chemistry, Business. A great PA and Nursing program.
Clubs and Activities
To many to list, I belong to two. Music, Dance, 5
Campus Safety
All over the place. They actually talk with students continuously to know whats happening as well as getting input on how safe students feel. They seem to know who should be there and who should not. 5
