Catherine Capolupo ’94
Vice President for Enrollment Management
Years at Stonehill: One.
As a student here: I had the good fortune to try many new things, including deejaying a radio show, acting in a play, trying indoor floor hockey, public speaking, embarking on my first road trip and interviewing for internships. I appreciate how we were encouraged to take risks and were supported through success and failure.
A good tip for students applying to college: Visit a variety of schools—not just one type—before narrowing your choices. You may be surprised at what type of community resonates and may be the best fit.
Rewards and challenges of my job: My greatest joy is when our students find success. It’s wonderful to hold a role with such a strong sense of mission and purpose. On a more personal level, those of us in admission and financial aid build relationships with families, and our hearts break when they have to make difficult decisions based on finances. While we try our very best, there are times when we can’t meet the needs of every family. This is why the support and generosity of our alumni and community in funding scholarships is so deeply appreciated.
Favorite Stonehill memory: Crowding into one dorm room on Thursday nights, so we could all watch Melrose Place together.
Words of wisdom I live by: “Your beliefs become your thoughts. Your thoughts become your words. Your words become your actions. Your actions become your habits. Your habits become your values. Your values become your destiny.” Attributed to Mahatma Gandhi.
