Stonehill Students Find Their Sense of Purpose from Holy Cross Philosophy

Stonehill Into the Streets Project

Students at Stonehill College are finding their life’s direction and self-discovery thanks in part to the philosophy of the Congregation of Holy Cross that gives them a sense of purpose.

Stonehill was founded by Holy Cross in 1948 in Easton, Mass. Blessed Basil Moreau, founder of Holy Cross, envisioned that religious should educate both the minds and the hearts of people. Service to others also is a critical component to that philosophy.

Stonehill offers a variety of opportunities outside of the classroom – including internships, research and community service – to help students succeed.

“The Catholic perspective helps me stay focused, to know school isn’t just about getting good grades,” said Kimberly Purisky, a freshman accounting major. “It’s about knowing yourself and how to handle life’s situations.”
