Elveera was looking for balance as she considered which college to attend. She wanted a campus that wasn’t so big she’d get lost and wouldn’t know professors; or so small she’d feel stifled. And one that complemented the freedom to explore with the security of knowing she was accepted for the person she is. Elveera felt drawn to that balance at Stonehill.
“Stonehill helps you cultivate all your academic talents, your social skills; it’s kind of like you get your tool kit here. You build your own skills.”
Ryan McDonough ’16 sees the headlines; he knows the job market is tough. But he doesn’t feel intimidated. He feels empowered. “I’m very confident I can get a job after I leave Stonehill,” he says. One reason is his professors, who combine scholarship with business experience to teach and mentor students. The other reason is Career Services, which has a proven four-year career preparation program that has already led Ryan to an internship as a bid analyst at W.B. Mason.
“Career services has helped me apply for internships and find competitive opportunities that help prepare me for life after college.”
Tom Gumbley ’16 remembers walking back to his dorm in silence after Professor John Lanci’s religious studies class because he was so enthralled by the ideas discussed and wanted to savor them for as long as he could.
“I left that class every day just feeling in awe,” says the economics and environmental studies double major from Cranston, Rhode Island. “Seeing my professors and what their passions are and seeing how much they enjoy what they do inspires me to find what my own passions are.”
When you find a community that fits, it gives you the confidence to explore. Amanda Nagim-Williams ’16 found that at Stonehill and the confidence she gained has been empowering. She got involved in Campus Ministry, Residence Life and the Office of Intercultural Affairs. She joined ALANA-A (African, Latino, Asian, Native American and their Allies) Brothers and Sisters and recently helped design and teach a class through Stonehill’s IDEAS program, a student-facilitated course initiative.
“I’ve experienced a lot here,” says the criminology major from Mattapan, Massachusetts. “Sometimes it’s challenging. But I’m making a difference and that’s probably what I’m going to do with the rest of my life.”
Keara Lavallee ’16 loves that Stonehill equips her with the skills and knowledge to achieve her vision of success along with the compassion and courage to help others achieve theirs.
“There is a culture at Stonehill that motivates people to get involved in service,” says the psychology major from Billerica, Massachusetts. Her commitment to that culture can be seen in many ways, from participating in Campus Ministry activities to volunteering her time to help others.
“It doesn’t necessarily have to be a grand action,” she says. “We're regular students, we live in the dorms, but we try our best to be there anytime, for anyone who needs us.”
As a Communication major, Tim honed the skills he needed for his internship by writing about athletics for The Summit student newspaper and working in the College's Communications & Media Relations Office. Tim also broadcast play-by-play for WSHL, Stonehill’s student-run radio station, and he was able to build an audio résumé thanks to the College’s Media & Videography Department.
“Having hands-on experience was a huge advantage. The average Stonehill student wants to do something other just than go to class,” Tim explains. “Stonehill attracts students who want a well-rounded education, both in and out of the classroom.”
