Connecting to Campus is the first part of your TRANSFERmation, your Le Moyne College orientation program. As a new student here, we want to prepare you for all the experiences that await you.

By participating in our virtual Connecting to Campus, you will be able to meet future classmates, learn about life at Le Moyne, and take care of the basics of becoming a dolphin.

Please RSVP for one of the Connecting to Campus sessions

As a new student at Le Moyne, we want to prepare you for all of the experiences that await you. New Beginnings is the next part of your TRANSFERmation. It is your orientation program and official welcome to campus! This student only event will be offered virtually over two consecutive Saturday mornings – Saturday, August 21st AND Saturday, August 28th.

This program gives us an opportunity to enthusiastically welcome you to The Heights and gives you a chance to get to know your new campus. During both sessions, you will engage in dialogue surrounding internships and career opportunities, as well as academic, social, and leadership organizations that will give you a distinct advantage when you graduate. Throughout the orientation, you will have an opportunity to meet your classmates and have all your questions answered by the experts.

Please RSVP for New Beginnings

so that we can identify the most appropriate tracks for you and best prepare for your arrival

Students in Dorm

The best thing about arriving at Le Moyne is that you will be able to build the confidence to stretch yourself because you’ll find the people (students, faculty and staff included) and the environment warm and open to you. But that’s probably what you’ve already noticed about this College – now your College.

It will be natural for you to take time to become adjusted and to transition to this new way of life. Many new opportunities will be available to you. With that comes the independence to set your own schedule, live on your own, commute from home and fill your time with club meetings, athletic events, work on campus and hanging out with friends.
