Admissions Interview: Yes - It went well, I felt comfortable and as so many say you are often met, by my surprise, by a pretty young, hip person not some cranky older person, as was the case here. They immediately made me feel very comfortable and relaxed. I was a little nervous but
Information Session: Yes - Very informative, eager to answer any and all questions. Thorough and very professional, unlike some other schools I had gone to where it felt rushed and almost robotlike.
Campus Tour: Yes - Excellent, with a campus like that,you can't go wrong...... It is positively beautiful, pristine and very accessible. You right away felt at home and that it was manageble to navigate, not overwelming.
Classroom Visit: Yes - Peeked in on a few and from what I could see looked like the classes were small, which is very key to me, and the classrooms were all very updated and technologically fit with the up to the minute latest of everything.

Campus Visit Notes for Stonehill College
Having gotten into 4 schools then eventually getting off the waitilst to 3 more I was left with a huge decision. Coming from an exclusive private school made me not want a very large school because I was concerned about the transition into a huge place. It came down to BU,GW, Bentley and Stonehill. Size ruled out BU especially after looking at the dorms, as did GW and then I omitted Bentley because of my reservations about studying business and being locked in to a school where that was my only option. I originally was considering Indiana's business school, but also ruled that out. When I actually visited Stonehill, especially after my college advisor thinking it was an excellent fit and her view that this is one of the "top private schools in the northeast" I did, and I immediately felt right at home. Everything felt right and my decision was made. I hope for all of you reading this, you will have that same feeling when you visit whatever school you visit and hope to attend.
