Monday Morning Update

March 25, 2019


YES TO THE DRESS: When Rebecca Brackett ’19 was 11 years old, she told her father that one day she would appear on her favorite show, Say Yes to the Dress, and work at Kleinfeld Bridal in New York City. What she didn’t know was that the Stonehill New York Internship Program would be the catalyst to fulfillment of her dream. Read her story here.

FORENSIC FAST-TRACK: Working in the niche field of forensic science, these two alums have Stonehill in their DNA—Adam Hall ’00 edits the prestigious Forensic Science Handbook Series while Andrew Schweighardt ’06 spends his days in New York City crime labs. Learn more here.

DANCERS' MARCH: Now in its third year, Stonehill’s Irish Dance Troupe, whose membership is up from six to 20 dancers, celebrated Saint Patrick’s Day by marching in the South Boston parade and performing locally. Take a look here.

PEACE IS POSSIBLE: In the Washington Post last week, Political Science Professor Anna Ohanyan wrote that peace might be possible between Armenia and Azerbaijan after decades of conflict over the enclave of Nagorno-Karabakh. A scholar of armed conflicts and peacebuilding, Ohanyan, who advocates for regional approaches to solving conflicts, noted that Armenia's most recent democratic transition strengthened democracy in South Caucasus, creating new opportunities for deeper diplomacy around the conflict. Read her analysis here.

SLICE OF CULTURE: Our student-run culture magazine, Rolling Stonehill, recently explored the theme of identity and “how we view ourselves; what make us feel comfortable, joyous, loved, angry, or afraid,” according to Head Editor Yousuf Sander ’20 who is interning and studying in London while also working on this semester’s magazine.
