As high school seniors spend the next few months deciding where they want to spend the next four years, we asked some of our students to share why they chose to attend Stonehill College. Here is what our Skyhawks had to say about our campus culture, our gorgeous grounds and more! 

Providing Opportunities to Lead

“I knew that I would learn the skills to become an effective leader. I've been given countless opportunities to lead clubs and organizations, and I've used my positions to advocate for what I believe is right for current and future students.” –Claire Chambers ’23 (Healthcare Management major, Political Science minor)

Creating Experiential Learning Opportunities

“I chose to come to Stonehill for the excellent Education Department, strong community and the liberal arts education…I had the chance to get out in the field as early as my first semester of college. Now as a student teacher, I am so thankful that I am prepared for my future career as an educator.” –Maegan Crowley ’23 (Secondary Education and English double major, Spanish minor)

Offering Support, Compassion and Empathy

“I felt an immediate sense of belonging here. At Stonehill, my thoughts have been challenged as I’ve honed critical thinking skills. I have been given opportunities to grow in my career and as a person. I have made memories that will last beyond my four years at this institution. Above all, the close-knit community at Stonehill is full of support, compassion and empathy.” –Elizabeth Jalette ’23 (Elementary Education and Psychology double major)

Helping Students Carve Their Own Path

“As someone who originally came in undeclared, I loved having the chance to experiment with multiple schools of education.” –Marisa Melo ’23 (Graphic Design major, Digital Media Production minor)

Building Impactful Relationships

“Stonehill provides a quality education and has an accredited business school, which is fitting for my accounting major. Stonehill also has a great relationship with the Big Four accounting firms (Deloitte, Ernst & Young, KPMG and PricewaterhouseCoopers), which made this school a strong contender. Lastly, I chose Stonehill for the ‘home away from home’ feeling I got when I first visited this beautiful campus.” –Allison Dlugosinski ’24 (Accounting major, Criminology minor)

Prioritizing Affordability

“I chose Stonehill because of its affordability and its proximity to home. As a commuter the price was great for me and allowed me to stay at home to help cut costs.” –Marcellous Benton ’25 (Marketing major)

Meeting High Standards

“I chose Stonehill because of its high standards. The programs here are ranked highly among American college surveys. Additionally, I picked Stonehill because of the beauty of the campus. The nature on display really makes me feel as though I am on a secluded reserve, not several hundred yards from a major highway.” –Sean Deabay ’25 (Psychology major)

Giving A Helping Hand

“I liked the range of resources that the College offers. From Academic Advising to Tutoring Services to the Career Development Center, there is always someone on campus available to help me fix any problem I have.” –Alexandra Moriarty ’26 (International Business major)

Making Higher Education Accessible

“The admissions team was friendly, and they made the process of applying as an international student very easy.” –Tatenda Otieno ’26 (Management Information Systems major)

Fostering Growth

“From the moment I stepped on campus, I could tell Stonehill values community. In my first year here, I have met some of the most fantastic people (both friends and professors) and have grown so much. This school fosters growth in every student. The professors value the mission of the school and are open and inviting.” –Briana Reidy ’26 (English and Secondary Education double major)
