Stonehill Skyhawks Athletics

Athletic Development

Mission

Stonehill College seeks to engage its athletic alumni in order to create a permanent link between those that created the rich tradition of Stonehill athletics and those that challenge themselves daily to ensure its continuous prosperity. Through an array of events; including alumni games, golf outings, and fundraising endeavors; the Department of Athletics strives to reunite alumni with the College to relive the glory of their athletic past and learn of the impressive academic and athletic accomplishments of their present-day successors.

In addition to linking generations of alumni, the development initiative of the Department of Athletics is charged with the responsibility of graciously seeking donations from those that care about Stonehill athletics to ensure its long-lasting stability and prosperity. Unfortunately, excessive spending now permeates collegiate athletics and threatens to obscure the original intent of intercollegiate athletic competition. Stonehill College recognizes the importance of intercollegiate athletics and provides, to the best of its ability, the resources necessary to compete at the Division II level. The intent of this Department is to assist the College in providing those resources, which will enhance the competitive experience of all our student-athletes.
