Welcome to LeMoyne-Owen College: Home of the Magicians!

 

We thank you for visiting our web site and for seeking to know more about what LeMoyne-Owen College has to offer its students. Our College seeks to provide a transformative experience for students of all ages with a goal of preparing students for urban-focused leadership, scholarship, service, and for professional careers. Students who are willing to accept the challenge of a rigorous academic environment, who will remain focused on the priority of their college career, and who are willing to stretch themselves beyond the ordinary, will become the graduates and achievers of the future.

 

LeMoyne-Owen College is proud of its legacy of having produced hundreds of doctors, lawyers, and teachers over its history; and in recent years, having produced actors, movie producers, Internet and computer technology gurus, professionals in business, politics and more.

 

President Watson and StudentsWe have been able to accomplish them because LeMoyne-Owen College has a strong and stable faculty and staff who are committed to student success. We are here because our students are here. We are therefore committed to developing the ‘whole person’ and to assisting students in achieving their college career goals.

 

For students who choose to become leaders, they will find opportunities to develop leadership skills as they participate in a variety of student activities. For those who prefer academic based competition, we offer the Du Bois Scholars program as well as a number of opportunities through our Division of Social and Behavioral Sciences, Division of Natural and Mathematical Sciences, Division of Liberal Arts and Humanities, Division of Business and Economic Development and Division of Education. Students may avail themselves of the myriad of development opportunities and community outreach activities provided by the college and its community partners in the form honors competitions, research fairs, business conferences, and much more.

 

LeMoyne-Owen College offers a smaller setting and a diverse faculty and student body, where students will get to know their peers, professors, members of the staff, and yes, they can even get to know me, the president of the College! We say that LeMoyne-Owen College is ‘your home away from home.’ We believe that when you leave LeMoyne-Owen, you will be a stronger, more knowledgeable, and confident individual; proud that you passed our way.

 

Johnnie B. Watson
President
