It’s summer camp season across central and northern New York. Among the traditional kind of camps that teach swimming, theater or arts and crafts, is a first in the area only for girls who are interested in science, technology, engineering and math. 

Le Moyne College recently wrapped up its first ever, all women high school summer camp that focuses on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) disciplines.

The goal of the camp, according to camp director Meriel Stokoe, is to attract young women to the STEM fields.

As New York’s April 19 primary vote approaches, Republican presidential hopeful John Kasich started his upstate politicking in Syracuse Friday night at a town hall at Le Moyne College. 

Kasich is the underdog in the three-man race for the GOP nomination. He’s running third, with 143 delegates, when more than 1,237 are needed to win the nomination. And that logistical hurdle was on the mind of many of the more than 1,000 people who came out to see the Ohio governor at the Le Moyne College Athletic Center.

A crowded Le Moyne College auditorium welcomed Gov. John Kasich to Syracuse Friday night.

It’s no secret that Kasich is losing the three-man race for the GOP nomination with a total of 143 delegates.

That’s less than 20 percent of the 743 delegates Donald Trump has won and less than 30 percent of the 520 delegates Sen. Ted Cruz has earned.

For the first time in almost 50 years, Le Moyne College is offering classes in downtown Syracuse.  

There’s no room for growth at Le Moyne’s Salt Springs Road Campus. So the school rented out a long-vacant wing of the Larned M & T Building on Hanover Square, to house its new occupational therapy program. President Linda LeMura says this brings the Jesuit school back downtown, where classes were first held in 1946.

Le Moyne College and Syracuse University’s School of Information Studies (iSchool) are making it easier to get an accelerated degree with the expansion of their successful fast track program.

With college costs skyrocketing anytime a student can cut down on the number of years they have to go to school the better. And that’s just what the fast track program currently does for students at Le Moyne’s Madden School of Business.
