Blessing, Ribbon Cutting Officially Open New Alumni House
On Friday, Feb. 15, the new Le Moyne Alumni House was dedicated with a short ceremony that included a ribbon cutting and blessing. The event was attended by representatives of the Board of Trustees, Board of Regents, Alumni Association Board of Governors, and other members of the Le Moyne community.

Located at 546 Fayette Boulevard, the house has been refurbished to serve the needs of alumni, with several meeting spaces, high-speed internet, and large-screen television in the living room with USB and computer capabilities. Covering the event were several television stations, including Channel 9 WSYR-TV. The house will also serve as home to Le Moyne’s Office of Alumni and Parent Programs.
“Our alumni are instrumental to the mission of the College,” said President Fred P. Pestello. “They represent a link to the past, but also a key to the future as they engage and support our community and our current students in so many ways. My hope is that this house becomes a treasured space, one that alumni may use to stay in touch with former classmates and to stay active and involved with the important work that Le Moyne is doing today.”
All members of the campus community are invited to stop by during business hours to see the house. There will also be an open house later in the spring semester.
