I attended Stonehill College, a private Roman Catholic college. The 375-acre campus sits just outside of Boston in Easton, Massachusetts. With a student to faculty ratio of 13 to 1 and enrollment of just over 2,300 students, Stonehill College offers a high quality education.
The campus centers around a Georgian-style mansion originally owned by Frederick Lothrop Ames. The North Dartmouth Holy Cross Fathers purchased the Ames mansion and 350 acres of land in 1935 and then bought the remainder of the land currently used for the campus in 1937. They originally acquired the building and land because increasing seminary enrollment created a need for new quarters. The Holy Cross Congregation opened Stonehill College in 1948 as a private men’s college enrolling 134 students. Currently, the College is co-educational.
Stonehill College offers undergraduate degrees in 31 majors and 37 minors. US News & World Report ranked it among America’s Best Colleges as a liberal arts college in 2008, and in 2010, the same publication ranked Stonehill College as one of America’s best up-and-coming colleges. Stonehill College has also received recognition for having one of the happiest student bodies, one of the most beautiful campuses in the country, and for providing a supportive campus environment.
