Lindsay Martin describes her personality in high school as reserved. But when it came to choosing a college, she wasn’t shy about turning down offers from other schools in favor of Stonehill’s close-knit community that seemed to mirror her small New Hampshire hometown.
Lindsay says that her years at Stonehill were perfectly suited to helping cultivate her interests – and her voice. As she sat in her first Student Government Association Town Hall – an open forum where administration and students speak candidly about areas for improvement – she realized she was in a place where students had a real say, where her own opinion mattered.
Robert Olberg, ’14, knew college would be different from high school. But he wasn’t expecting the shift in his academic mindset to be so dramatic.
“When I got to Stonehill, I realized the professors are trying to fundamentally change how you study; you can’t just regurgitate information anymore,” says Robert. “The problems of college are more analytical – it takes an adjustment.”
When Eliseo Miranda, ’13, welcomes freshmen to Stonehill College as a Peer Mentor, he thinks back to his own transition to college. “When I arrived at Stonehill, I recognized I needed to challenge myself to achieve my goal of becoming an engineer,” he says.
Randy Jose, ’12, vividly remembers his first visit to Stonehill; the beauty and safety of the campus left an impression. He also recalls a little commotion in front of the Commonwealth Courts dorm.
“Students were hollering, “Come to Stonehill!’” he says. “They didn’t know me, so it was special to see how people were reaching out and how they treat each other at Stonehill.”
Randy says that once students arrive at Stonehill, they quickly realize that the sense of inclusion extends far beyond a warm welcome, even reaching the classroom. A Healthcare Communications class with Professor Brian McKenna illustrated what Randy says is a passion for teaching shared among every one of Stonehill’s faculty.
Eric Sarra wasn’t expecting the life-changing experience he found when signing up for a philosophy course with Stonehill Professor Anthony Celano. But it ended up shaping the rest of his time here and shaping his decisions on what to do after graduation. Eric says this is just the way things happen at Stonehill, where every experience is a challenge leading to self-discovery.
