The Feel

  • The Stonehill College campus is situated in a residential area.

  • Students enjoy plenty of green space and pine groves dot the campus, which is spaciously spread out; it is around a 15 minute walk from end to end.

  • The library offers students a cafe and checks-out non-book items like cooking items, video game consoles, board games and more.

  • Student health and wellbeing are considered and marked by a variety of health classes, including a spin class.

  • There are 50+ clubs on campus to get students connected, and bingo is a popular event with big prizes!

  • A Catholic institution, Stonehill supports students wishing to explore or deepen their Christian faith. Masses are held every day of the week, and service trips and spiritual retreats are offered regularly.

  • Thirty percent of Stonehill students are Catholic. One religion class is required for all students.

  • For housing, first year students generally reside in rooms of two in traditional hall-style dorms. Suite-style housing is available for upperclassmen.


Standout Points

  • The cornerstone of an education at Stonehill College is its emphasis on creating a well-rounded graduate. This is realized through their model of thirds: the first third of a student’s courses are designated subjects in the liberal arts, with a wide choice of courses to choose from; the second third of overall courses will apply to the student’s chosen major, and the final third allows the student to explore other areas of interest.

  • Stonehill’s school of business, the Business Administration Department, is AACSB accredited, signifying their commitment to quality and global relevancy. A new business building houses a recording studio where students can record themselves to improve interview skills. Furthermore, the Department has a certified Bloomberg room and students are encouraged to obtain Bloomberg certification.

  • The average class size is 19.

  • Athletics at Stonehill just moved from DII to DI, and basketball is a big deal!


Fun Fact

  • Where else can you find a shovel museum with 783 different types of shovels? Each year, the senior class president chooses a shovel to present at convocation which represents the spirit of the class.


Bottom Line Fit: For the student seeking a tight knit liberal arts setting that prioritizes a robust campus life with some emphasis on religion/spirituality and access to the Boston area.
