COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE: After successfully presenting real life case studies before experienced corporate executives and against other schools recently, 12 of our business students will represent Stonehill at the Distributive Education Clubs of America (DECA) International Career Development Conference in Florida this April. Meet the students here.

SWEET TREAT: We have 10 jars of delicious honey from The Farm at Stonehill to share with readers. First come, first served! Email us for yours.
