Monday Morning Update

March 12, 2018


TOXIC TALK: Thirty years ago, Talk Radio exposed the toxic, angry world of call-in radio shows. Today, in the age of social media, the play is even more relevant because now, “we are all living inside a talk show,” says Matt Greene, artistic director of the Stonehill Theatre Company, which performs the play this month. Also, we have 10 free print copies of Talk Radio by Eric Bogosian. To learn more about the show, visit here. Request a copy of Radio Talk, click here. First come first serve.

MUSIC & MEMORY: Sixteen Stonehill students are giving the gift of music and memory as volunteers with Soundtrack of Life, a habilitation program for patients with Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia at Life Care Centers of America in West Bridgewater. To learn about their efforts, visit here.

STORM SCENES: The recent nor’easter damaged or snapped close to 100 trees on campus, keeping Facilities and external contractors very busy with cleanup over spring break. Along with photos of the storm aftermath, we've compiled some beautiful images of campus under a blanket of fresh snow. Visit here.

MARCHING HISTORY: Want to march in New York City’s St. Patrick’s Day parade this Saturday? Join with alumni, parents and friends from our New York Council who have been marching in parade for several years. Registration is required. To learn more visit here.  

BEST BIBS: Offered in partnership with Camp Shriver at Stonehill and UMass Boston, we have 10 bibs for the TCS New York City Marathon on November 4 with proceeds benefiting both sites. Visit here to apply.

SUSTAINABLE SNACKWARE: Starting this week, more than 200 students will be piloting the College's new GREEN 2GO program, switching out their old recyclable carry-out options for reusable, washable containers that will significantly reduce waste on campus.
