TAKE CARE, CHIEF: Last Friday marked the final day on duty for Stonehill Police Chief Peter Carnes, who retired after 11 years of dedicated service to the College community. To see highlights from his time visit here.

FALL DEAN'S LIST ANNOUNCED: The College recently announced the Fall 2018 Dean's List, comprising of students who had a semester grade point average of 3.50 or better and completed successfully all courses for which they were registered. Take a look here.

MLK DAY: Today is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day! Take a moment to revisit the reflections of Stonehill Provost Joe Favazza, who was living in Memphis on the day King was assassinated. Tomorrow, join us on the steps of Cushing-Martin at 12:30 p.m. for a march and prayer service, and see more MLK events below. To watch the video visit here.

WINTER READING: As temperatures drop and we hit the heart of winter, are you ready to curl up by a fire with a good book but not sure what to read? Our librarians are here to help with their recent list of winter book recommendations! Take a look here.

FEAST DAY: Yesterday was the feast day of Blessed Basil Moreau, founder of the Congregation of Holy Cross. With that in mind, we remember Moreau’s words that go to the core of our educational mission: "We shall always put education side by side with instruction; the mind will not be cultivated at the expense of the heart."
