$50,000 Campaign Winner!

The results of our $50,000 campaign are in. After a month long campaign to solicit ideas from the student body, SGA is proud to announce that the winner is our Sustainability Package option.

The Sustainability Package includes a number of water bottle filers, multi-stream recycling bins, and energy saving motion sensor lights. A combination package of these sustainability tools will help Stonehill reduce waste and energy consumption as well as help students practice a more sustainability lifestyle.

The SGA E-Board is currently meeting with staff from the Facilities, Purchasing, and Operations Departments to lay-out an implementation plan. The plan will cover the installation of the water bottle filers and motion sensor lights over the summer months. The E-Board will also deeply consider placement of the Sustainability package items to ensure maximum effectiveness.

We would like to thank all of the students, faculty, and staff who made this $50,000 campaign a huge success. SGA prides itself on incorporating the many voices of their constituents into a proactive movement for Stonehill at large. Our work is only a small example of how organized, efficient, and inspired students can change the Stonehill community for the better.

Changes APPROVED within SGA

The Student Senate has been working hard for the past four weeks on perfecting a new structural organization to the Student Government Association that will increase the representation of the student body within SGA.  After four meetings of working on positions, their descriptions, and their purposes, the Senate today passed with an almost unanimous vote to approve the new structure.


The major changes occurred within the Class Committees, completely altering the positions and their roles and responsibilities within the committee.  The mission of the committee was also changed, as in the past, it was more “programming” based and beginning next year it will be more “issue” based, meaning that the committees will work to address student concerns and questions instead of hosting social events.


The role of the Programming Committee has also changed too, transitioning from an active role to an advisory position, passing off its traditional programs to its subcommittees and serving as an advisory role in the organization and planning of its subcommittee events.

A special congratulations to our Executive Board and Student Senate for working to approve a change aimed at improving the mission of the Student Government Association!
