LeMoyne-Owen College has stood as a beacon of the community as Memphis’ only Historically Black College and University for 160 years. In 1862, the college was founded as Lincoln School, which later became LeMoyne Normal and Commercial School. LeMoyne College would later merge with S.A. Owen Junior College in 1968. Decades later, LOC continues to advance in the community and beyond by exploring its magical opportunities in leadership and innovation.
It’s an exciting time to be a LeMoyne-Owen College Magician. As the momentum surrounding LOC continues to grow, the world realizes what faculty, staff, and alumni have always known: LOC is a magical community of diverse leaders prepared for success locally, nationally, and globally.
