As a senior, I'm a little ashamed to say that I just read the school's mission for the very first time. I guess I never felt particularly drawn towards learning about the mission, because these things are usually pieces of fluff strewn together to create a nice, pretty, fluffy picture of Stonehill College.

In other words, I figured it was bullshit.

Although I had no intentions of doing so, I read and interpreted the mission within the context of The New Story. I couldn't believe how closely they relate-- I literally got excited about it, which is dorky even for myself-- but really, even if you have read the College's mission before, read it again now, after all we've digested about The New Story.

See for yourself :)

It is rather fluffy, isn’t it? On the upside, one thing we can take away from it is the positive light it’s clearly pushing for. After all, we have to shed positive light on our project come fund raising time. Hopefully we won’t have to be so fluffy though...

I think this is a very good place for us to start today, when we try to hone the central idea into something we can build on. Thanks for the heads up, em.
