Monday Morning Update

April 15, 2019


DONORS AND STUDENTS: “The relationship between donors and scholars is symbiotic: we both give and we both receive. Together we live the words of St. Francis, ‘It is in giving, we receive,’” Benefactor and Trustee Elizabeth Hayden ’76, at the Annual Scholarship Dinner where two seniors shared how scholarships impacted their education. Meet the seniors.

PET RESCUE: Congrats to Kristen (McManus) Peralta ’03 who, along with her husband Marc, was hailed recently by People Magazine for the work their nonprofit, Vintage Pet Rescue, does for senior and hospice dogs in Rhode Island. Check it out.

TAGGING AND THANKING: To show how philanthropy can transform a campus, we recently placed 40 oversized tags outside major buildings and smaller tags outside classrooms and labs all funded through the generosity of our students, alumni, staff, faculty, family, and friends. See the photos.

STUDENT POET: A shout out to Sarah Cavanaugh ’21 who will represent Stonehill at the Greater Boston Intercollegiate Undergraduate Poetry Festival tomorrow at Boston College. Nominated by English Professor Amra Brooks, Cavanaugh will be one of 23 student poets from area colleges reading their original poetry.

MARCH TIMELAPSE: The Meehan School of Business is in a vital stage of development, as the exterior continues to take shape. Take a look at the progress made on the building in March and watch the last snow of the year melt as we greeted spring. Watch the timelapse.
