COVID-19 continues to impact all of us and change the way we live our daily life. Though we look forward to resuming traditional activities, it will likely continue to impact the way that we all study, work, and live on the Stonehill College campus. As the leadership of the Student Government Association (SGA) and the Residence Hall Association (RHA), we have collaborated with the College to craft the following Skyhawk Community Promise.  

Our campus and the community we nurture here is the hallmark of a Stonehill experience. It is an incredibly strong one, and in order to have a successful semester, we must all agree to take active steps to protect the health and safety of every member of our campus and local community. Please review this social contract carefully and certify that you will do all you can to keep our community healthy.

Welcome to Stonehill! We look forward to seeing you on campus.
