Monday Morning Update

March 11, 2019


BIG SPRING BREAK: While our students took spring break off from class, many of them spent the week learning in other forums. Whether through our H.O.P.E. programs across the U.S. and abroad, externships in Boston, New York, and Washington D.C., or Habitat for Humanity, students lived out our mission and made the most of their time away from campus. Learn more here.

TOP COPS: Two Stonehill criminal justice majors now lead the Stonehill College Police Department. David Wordell ’89 became Chief in January after Chief Peter Carnes retired, while Rochelle Ryan ’18 became Lieutenant: Patrol and Investigative Service. Meet Them!

CHEMISTRY PREFERENCE: When it came time for the fetal pig dissection in her Stonehill biology class, Amy (Morin) Deveau ’96 almost threw up. The experience, however, reaffirmed her preference for chemistry, which has led her to the University of New England, Maine, where she now conducts cutting-edge research while instilling a love of chemistry in her students. Find out more here.

CELTIC CYCLING: Seeking to get fit, Mike Shea ’85 took to cycling but the roads in Dublin, where he lives, are not conducive. Then he discovered the historic Royal Canal as a path to fitness and as a journey into Ireland’s history, heart and soul, which he captures in Along the Banks: Cycling Ireland’s Royal Canal. We have six copies of his book, email for yours. To learn more, visit here.

FEBRUARY CONSTRUCTION: The tarps are staring to come down and the bricks are falling into place! Check out the progress made on the Meehan School of Business during February! Take a look here.
