Academics

Stonehill College, resting between Boston and Providence, is a place where students say “I can be myself,” and “I am supported in all my endeavors” by a community of people who “want [me] to succeed.” At this Roman Catholic liberal arts college, students feel like the academics place a productive emphasis on developing all the “necessary training, knowledge and skills that will allow us to succeed post-graduation.” “My résumé is unique, and I feel secure that I will have a successful job after I leave,” one student reports, listing “a full-time internship in L.A.” and the chance to travel “abroad to do service in South Africa next semester” among the career-building opportunities to be found at Stonehill. Students also praise “the invaluable Career Development Center, providing ample career opportunities and professional training.” This “strong liberal arts program geared toward traditional students” provides students with “fully-integrated classrooms and laboratories” and professors who are “friendly, with intimate class sizes of ten to twenty-five students.” The “knowledgeable and passionate” professors are “accessible to students” outside of class and “challenge students to work hard and think critically.” They are genuinely interested in their students and want to help them succeed. They “really do care about you and make an effort to get to know you (academically as well as outside the classroom, i.e., hobbies, etc.). One student describes a professor they had their first semester who “still says hi to me when he sees me in the hallways (and I haven’t had him as a professor in three years),” and many other students tell us about how professors are “willing to meet with you to go over a test or paper” to make sure “you succeed.”

Student Body

Stonehill students are quick to tell you just how nice everyone is. People “always say hello even if they don’t know you,” and “if you run out of money at the dining hall, someone will almost always help you out.” It is rare to “see people eating alone in the cafeteria,” and students say they “strive towards creating an accepting, welcoming community and [that they] are committed to making our world just for all.” Demographically, “Stonehill is primarily white, Catholic students from New England,” though some students say that the administration has “been working on [increasing diversity] in the past couple years.” Stonehill is a place where you will find people who are “kind and thoughtful,” “friendly to everyone and passionate about their areas of study, service and [extracurricular activities].”

Campus Life

Stonehill College is “aesthetically beautiful, idealistically comfortable with a suburban yet grandiose green appeal.” Life during the week is structured around academics, and you will find students “[making] use of one of the countless awesome study spots on campus to do some homework alone or with friends” or else “scattered about doing various different clubs and sports, and eating in the dining hall.” Study-weary students can always find a chance to relax and enjoy themselves at “fun events around campus both during the week and on weekends, between sporting events, intense BINGO, a musical or dancing performance, or other fun activities.” Students try to “make an effort to volunteer both on and off campus to give back to the community,” either “on campus volunteering at the farm... to help provide fresh produce to the surrounding area” or at a local organization, like the “Big Sister Big Brother program.” Stonehill students are an active bunch; “When it’s nice out, you can expect to see people playing frisbee or spikeball on the quad,” and “intramural sports is a big [past] time.” It isn’t a “huge party school,” but “many upperclassmen students party...on-campus and off-campus on Thursday and there are parties on-campus on Friday and Saturday nights.”
