Le Moyne College

Syracuse, NYwww.lemoyne.edu
Over 20% of the roughly 2,500 students at this Jesuit university in Syracuse, N.Y., are first-generation college attendees. To help them make the transition, Le Moyne provides a variety of free support services to first-year students, including one-on-one tutoring, assistance with learning strategies and skills, and academic support and counseling for students on probation. First-year students also have the option to live in "learning communities" with other new students who have similar interests and majors. The school offers about 30 majors and 20 minors, including forward-thinking disciplines like urban studies housed in the Center for Urban and Regional Applied Research, which focuses on improving infrastructure in the region, and the environmental studies major through the Center for the Study for Environmental Change. While LMC is a private school, it draws a fairly local student body, with many Dolphins coming from New York state, in part because the school offers each incoming New York freshman a Promise NY scholarship of $10,000. When it opened in downtown Syracuse in 1946, Le Moyne was the first Jesuit university to admit women. More than 50 years later, the school's commitment to equality continues: Approximately 60% of enrollees are women.
