As a member of the basketball team ('65-'69), Stonehill provided me the financial means to attend college. I am grateful for that experience and the opportunities that followed. I wish the best for all past and future Stonehill athletes.

Throughout my four years I have received generous scholarships from the College and its donors that provided financial relief to my family and I. Stonehill also afforded me opportunities that I will forever be grateful for. I had the opportunity to play Division 2 Lacrosse for a nationally ranked team with amazing coaches and teammates, learned so much through the HOPE program, and built relationships with so many wonderful students and faculty through the orientation programs. These experiences were not ones that I anticipated having coming into college, but are ones that I will remember forever.
