Reflections On President Trump’s Refugee Executive Order

Stonehill’s community is one of kind. It fosters a place of security and safety. The campus offers safe spaces for all diverse lives, and continues to grow into a more welcoming place for all who come from different parts of the world. With different perspectives on executive orders like Trump’s “Muslim Ban”, which was signed by the president on January 27th, 2017, comes different view points, and reaction to how they effect our every day lives.

The entire Student Government body welcomes every culture. We accept every type of religion. This is what makes us different from other institutions, and every member of SGA is proud to stand by the viewpoint that anyone and everyone should be accepted in our society. From international students who came to Stonehill for a specific and wonderful reason, to the students who’s families came to this country as refugees: we cherish each and every one of your perspectives.

Whether this “ban” is an action plan to make America a “safer place,” or if it used to regulate our country’s immigration process, it carries a stigma of rejection. From the Office of Intercultural Affairs, their “What’s Up Thursdays: A Community Conversation” will be held this Thursday (February 9th) in the DisCo room on the first floor library. It is open dialogue for all students to share their opinions and view points of what it means to be a “safer America.” This event is a collaboration between the following divisions: Student Affairs, Academic Affairs and Mission. 

We hope this reflection gives an open mind to all who read.

6 Ways to Get Involved in SGA This Semester!

Looking to become more involved on campus? SGA provides students with tons of opportunities for you to get involved and find your passions. Here are a few:

  1. Come to Senate! For those of you who are unfamiliar, Senate is a branch of Student Government that meets once a week during the Activities Period on Mondays (11:30-12:45). Senate discusses campus issues and we foster relationships between students and faculty. We also have guest speakers from various departments across campus bring up major initiatives and plans!
  2. Join a club or activity on campus! We have over 90 clubs that allow students to share their passions and promote important issues through meetings and events. Don’t see a club that you like but have an idea to create your own? Come stop by our office in the Commons Room 111 to learn how you can start your own club or organization!
  3. Did you know that SGA sponsors events such as the Spring Concert, the Spring Mixer, the Spring Carnival, Movie Nights, Concerts in the Hill, Trips, Karaoke/Trivia Nights? These are always amazing events and a great way for you to connect with other people who have similar interests as you! Spoiler alert: sometimes there is free food 🙂
  4. Stop by and meet your class representatives during Office Hours! Do you have a question or concern about something going on around campus? The best group to reach out to is your class committee!

It’s On US!

Hey Stonehill!

The SGA E-Board and Student Senate are excited to continue efforts to bring the It’s on Us White House initiative back to campus this year. We were excited with the positive feedback we received from tabling at Fresh Check Day earlier this semester and around the commons for a week mid-semester.

Looking towards the last few weeks of the fall semester, we will be inviting the student body to participate in the It’s On Us Photo Campaign. From December 7th-9th during Lunch and Dinner Hours (11:30-2:00 and 5:00-6:30), E-Board members and Senators will be tabling across from the mailboxes. There, students, faculty and staff will be able to take their picture with a white board where they can write how they support the campaign. Examples include- I will not be a passive bystander, Someone I care about was sexually assaulted, I’m a survivor of sexual assault, or simply It’s On US.

We look forward to getting student participation in this photo campaign as we work towards creating an It’s On Us Community Collage to move throughout campus during the spring semester. This collage will be revealed at an event early in the Spring semester.

We invite you to stop by our tables December 7th, 8th, and 9th!

Everything you need to know about getting your green to-go container for No-To-Go Week!

By now you’ve all seen the hysterical posters in the commons informing the student body of No-To-Go Week. We know what you’re thinking – where can YOU get your own awesome green to-go container?! Here’s how!

No-To-Go Week will be taking place November 14th-18th. On November 14th and 15th, Food Truth will be handing out 350 green clips during lunch and dinner. If you don’t have a green clip already, make sure to get yours quick!

Once you have your ECO-CLIP and need to get a meal to-go, head on over to the Bakery and trade it in for your green to-go container (you can skip the line!)

You can then turn in your dirty green to-go container into the Bakery, OR at a drop off bin in the Library at any time. You will then be given another eco-clip, which is much easier to carry around!

Put your eco-clip on your lanyard, backpack, water bottle, etc! Food Truth has worked hard to make this week happen, so be a part of Stonehill’s mission to reduce unnecessary waste and to reuse. No-To-Go Week will help you save money, while reducing our individual impact on the planet!

Remember to continue supporting these great efforts even AFTER No-To-Go Week is over. Once you have an eco-clip, you have continuous access to a green container. Can’t wait to see you all rocking your eco-clips!

Everything You Need to Know About State of the Hill!

In accordance with the major developments to Stonehill College in the coming years, SGA has decided to forgo the traditional Town Hall meeting and replace it with a newly structured State of the Hill Address.  The State of the Hill Address is open to the entire student body, and will feature college administrative faculty as the presenters, including our President, Father John Denning!


The State of the Hill’s presentations have been given in front of multiple audiences, and have been perfectly refined for this occasion so that you, the students, are getting the best information available.  The presentations are as follows:


1) Diversity Initiatives on Campus as presented by Father John Denning


2) Academic Restructuring and Transitions as presented by John Pestana and Cris DePina


3) Master Plan and the constructions on campus as presented by Craig Binney


All of these developments are going to have a wonderful impact on student life here at Stonehill College, since all three will improve our resources, programs, and opportunities.  The Diversity Initiatives are currently improving the inclusivity of the Stonehill community, the Academic Restructuring will focus future academic programs for students at Stonehill, and the campus constructions will provide beautiful new facilities to foster greater learning.  Also, if this isn’t enough to be excited about, FREE PIZZA will be provided throughout the event.  Stonehill’s students are some of the most involved and considerate, and it is the action and support of the student body that drive the school’s betterment.  Thanks for reading, and see you all there!screen-shot-2016-11-04-at-8-38-42-am
