The Brooklyn Bridge and the Legacy of the Liberal Arts
An essay by Dr. Linda LeMura, LeMoyne College Provost, appeared in The Post Standard on Dec. 25, 2013. The essay describes the trips to New York City which are an integral part of the first-year seminar experience at Le Moyne. Dr. LeMura wrote:
During the first three weekends in November, more than 350 first-year students at Le Moyne College traveled to New York City to explore its museums, attend its theater, study its architecture, wander in its public parks and gardens, and marvel at the scope, diversity, and history of New York.
These trips were a part of their first-year seminar experience - courses designed to introduce students to the rigors of academia and to excite them about complex histories and ideas. Le Moyne students stood before Van Goghs and Renoirs; they toured Grand Central Station and the Tenement Museum; they listened to Broadway ballads in Times Square and they dined on matzah-ball soup at Katz's deli.

Le Moyne Senior Returns With Lessons From Thailand

Powers was one of five students selected from Deborah Tooker’s Research in Anthropology course who lived among the Akha people and conducted research funded by the Freeman Foundation through ASIANetwork, a consortium of approximately 160 North American Colleges that strives to strengthen the role of Asian studies in liberal arts education.
