The former Ames estate was the first building of the Stonehill campus

Stonehill College is a private, non-profit, coeducational, Roman Catholic, liberal arts college located in Easton, Massachusetts, United States, founded in 1948. Stonehill is located 22 miles (35 km) south of Boston on a 375-acre (1.52 km2) campus, the original estate of Frederick Lothrop Ames, Jr.. The campus map highlights 29 buildings that complement the original Georgian-style Ames mansion.

Stonehill College was founded in 1948 by the Congregation of Holy Cross, whose members established the University of Notre Dame (1842).

Other Holy Cross Colleges include Our Lady of Holy Cross College (Louisiana), King's College (Pennsylvania), the University of Portland, Saint Mary's College (Indiana), St. Edward's University, Holy Cross College (Indiana), and Stonehill's sister school, the University of Notre Dame, where Stonehill's engineering majors spend their last four semesters of undergraduate education.

History[edit]

In the autumn of 1934, the Holy Cross Fathers in North Dartmouth began to look for new quarters because of increasing seminary enrollment. The current Stonehill campus was purchased from Mrs. Frederick Lothrop Ames, Jr. on October 17, 1935. The initial purchase included 350 acres (1.4 km2) and the original Ames mansion; the congregation purchased the remaining 190 acres (0.77 km2) from Mrs. Cutler two years later. Frederick Lothrop Ames, Jr. was the great-grandson of Oliver Ames, Sr., who came to Easton in 1803 and established the Ames Shovel Company.

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts authorized the Congregation of Holy Cross to establish Stonehill College on the Frederick Lothrop Ames, Jr. estate on June 30, 1948. In September of that year the college enrolled 134 men as the first class. Classes were held in the mansion and in the Ames Gym.

The first building built by the college was the Science Building which opened in February 1949. In 1974 the building was renovated and renamed the Tracy Science Building in honor of David Tracy, a former Stonehill advisor and trustee. The Science Building has since been moved to the brand new Shields Science Center, which opened in 2009.

In June of 2017 Stonehill announced that W.B. Mason would be donating 10 million dollars to open the Leo J. Meehan School of business. The school is named after alumnus and W.B. Mason CEO Leo Meehan. The business school will encompass Stonehill’s accounting, finance, international business, management, marketing, economics, and healthcare administration programs.[4]

On November 3, 1949, the first issue of the College newspaper, The Summit, was published. In the fall of 1951 the college decided to become a coeducational organization and enrolled 19 women. The first class graduated from Stonehill on the first Sunday of June 1952 and consisted of 73 men.

Academics[edit]

Degrees and academic programs[edit]

As a College of Arts and Sciences and pre-professional studies, Stonehill awards on the undergraduate level the B.A., B.S., and B.S.B.A.

Stonehill offers 38 major programs, the opportunity to double major or participate in one of the College’s 45 minor programs.[5]

Students develop knowledge and skills through general education, master at least one major area of study, and have the flexibility to explore other coursework, study abroad, internships, independent research, and other experiences unique to their own educational plans.

The MacPhaidin Library[edit]

The MacPhaidin Library, named in honor of Stonehill College's eighth president, Father Bartley MacPhaidin, C.S.C., was constructed in 1997 and opened in May 1998, at the college in North Easton, Massachusetts. The MacPhaidin Library is three stories high and covers 600,000 square feet. It houses a collection of 250,000 print volumes, including more than 100 full-text databases and indexes, and two computer labs. Various works of local art and history are on display at the library as well as a large collection of historical Irish documents and literature.

Ace's Place Cafe: Ace's Place Cafe, located on the ground floor of the MacPhaidin Library, was renovated in the summer of 2012 and now serves Starbucks coffee and Sodexo food products. Additional booth and table seating has been added and use of the facility is open for the enjoyment of students, staff, and outside patrons.

Campus renovations[edit]

The college has begun a series of improvements to the campus. These improvements include:[7]

  • Diverting the Rt. 123 access road to wrap around the outside of the campus, passing W.B. Mason Stadium and the Sally Blair Ames Sports Complex. Previously the road passed between O’Hara Hall and The Martin Institute. The new road is intended to create a better pedestrian atmosphere on campus with most of the main access roads encircling the campus. The area where the previous road passed through was converted into walking paths and grass lands. In addition a new brick walkway was constructed to connect to the brick pathways on the quad.
  • Construction of a new science center on the Rt. 123 side of the Martin Institute. The new center had a soft open in the Summer of 2009, and had a grand opening for the Fall semester of the same year. The center also marks the first corporate inclusion on campus, as a Dunkin' Donuts opened in the student center of the building in October 2009.
  • Construction of a much-desired footbridge over the Ames Pond (to be located and accessed behind O'Hara Hall). This project was completed in the fall of 2013.

The re-routing project was completed in late summer of 2006. The pathway project was completed in the spring of 2007.

  • The Hill, a pub-like eating area in Roche Commons, was completely done over by the architect of the Fire and Ice restaurant. The remodeling began in the beginning of May 2010 and was completed by the start of the Fall 2010 semester.

New buildings on campus[edit]

  • Near the entrance way to Stonehill, the Shields Science Center is an 89,630 Sq. foot, 34 million dollar building. It is the Newest and greenest academic building. Completed in the summer of 2009, it is one of the newest buildings on campus. It has windows that have special coating to keep cool air in and hot air out (or vice versa) It also boasts a rooftop garden to collect rainwater, as well as a greenhouse out back of the building. The building is divided into two wings: The Wet science wing (Biology, Chemistry and Biochemistry) and the Dry science wing: (Physics, Psychology and Neuroscience) Many classrooms are "Clab" style-mixed class and lab space. Students can have lectures and then immediately apply what they learned in a lab setting. Shields Science Center also houses the Pettit Atrium, a popular 24-hour study space for students. Besides a study area, it is also home to many other social events, as it houses approximately 340-500 people events. Right outside the Petit Atrium is the Dunkin donuts, which is open until 11 PM.
  • New Hall is a brand new upperclassman, suite-style residence hall, completed in 2010. It contains 31 suites housing 6-10 students each. Most suites feature a common area living room, two full bathrooms and a well-appointed kitchenette. New Hall also features two laundry rooms, several quiet study rooms, a game room, a common-area kitchen, chapel for mass/quiet reflection and a main programming lounge on the first floor. It is also the tallest building in Easton.

Sports[edit]

The Athletic Department fields 20 competitive NCAA Division II intercollegiate varsity sports. The College’s combination of academic and athletic success has garnered Stonehill the #4 ranking in the country among NCAA Division II schools in the Collegiate Power Rankings that are published by the National College Scouting Association.
