Students who checked their Stonehill email accounts on Monday, Nov 4, noticed a new color scheme and operating system.
Students were notified of the change via email on Nov. 1. The new system was an upgrade by Microsoft to the Office 365 system.

IT also informed students that “The most noticeable change, however, will be that Office 365 has a blue/white color scheme, instead of the orange/white color scheme you are accustomed to.” Continue Reading →

The night of Saturday, Oct. 26th, most Stonehill students were preparing for the events that would take place in the coming hours–the Halloween mixer, on campus parties, or just hanging out with friends.
The residents of Otis, however, unfortunately had an eventful night of their own. The entire first floor of the house was flooded after what is believed to be a roll of paper towels was thrown at the indoor sprinkler system, causing it, and the fire alarms, to go off. Continue Reading →
