Some updates from the last two weeks: Noreen Falcone Library was officially re-opened on September 5. President Linda LeMura spoke at its commemoration, in addition to Provost Joe Marina, S.J., Library Director Inga Barnello, and Senior Vice President Roger Stackpoole cut the ribbon to mark its opening. And on September 14, Le Moyne’s hard-working faculty was rewarded and celebrated at the Fall Convocation.

The biggest school-wide event in the next week is Family Weekend. It is sure to be a packed weekend; if you want to see all the events, make sure to check them out on the college’s website. There will be open houses, sports games, performances, and live music brought to you by Le Moyne’s own students outside of the Athletic Center. On Friday, September 21, there is a Dean’s List celebration in the Recreation Center at 7:30 p.m., followed by a reception with desserts and coffee.

If you are a commuter who plans on working in Syracuse after graduation and interested in the arts or sciences, there is an Arts Leader Roundtable discussion. Local community members involved in Syracuse theater, music and science will be to discuss the challenges of these local businesses but their opportunities as well. This event is a great way to make future connections. Attend on September 18, from 6-7 p.m. in the Marren Blackbox Studio in the PAC.

In addition, entertainment and discussions at Le Moyne always provides for something to do in the evening. It also fulfills some class requirements and professors often offer them as extra credit opportunities. On Saturday, September 22 at 7 p.m., Le Moyne sings Sara Bareilles in the PAC’s auditorium. Additionally, if you are a Freshman who has read the novella Sunny’s Blues, or interested in the story in general, there will be a Musical Conversation about it on September 25 at 7 p.m. in Grewen Auditorium. This is a great read for anyone who likes a realistic storyline that gets to its point through music. Finally, on September 28 at 7:30 p.m., there is a film screening of Johnny Cash’s live concert from Folsom prison. This event will also be held in the PAC’s auditorium.

Stay tuned for interviews from commuters and how they are making an impact in their major, extracurriculars, and contributing in big ways to Le Moyne as well as their outside communities in Syracuse!
