GOHILL DAY: Across 21 varsity sports this year, 450 Stonehill student athletes are challenging themselves to become leaders with integrity, learning teamwork lessons, rebounding from setbacks, and being gracious in victory and defeat. That spirit will be on display during GoHill Day Saturday, Nov. 2, when five teams—men’s and women's soccer, football, women’s volleyball, and ice hockey—will be in action. There will also be a reception tent with family friendly activities at W.B. Mason Stadium from 12-3 p.m. Learn more.
CELEBRATING SERVICE: In the past decade, through the Stonehill Service Corps more than 100 young alumni have given a year of service to communities in India, the Dominican Republic, Honduras, and Brockton.
