#SkyhawkNation #SpiritWeek, October 9-18

EASTON, Mass. (October 3, 2012) - #SkyhawkNation, the go-to Facebook fan page for Stonehill students, will be holding #SpiritWeek October 9-18. #SkyhawkNation is promoting a contest where students will earn preferred seating at "Midnight Madness" on Thursday, October 25, a pizza party prior to the event, free Stonehill gear and infinite residence hall pride.

In conjunction with #SkyhawkNation's #SpiritWeek, the Stonehill Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) also encourages fans to participate in the NCAA Division II Week of Wishes, starting Friday, October 5, which benefits the Make-A-Wish® Foundation. NCAA Division II student-athletes, coaches, administrators, parents, fans, friends and communities across the country have been working hard to make a difference in the lives of Make-A-Wish® families since 2003 and through their fundraising efforts the NCAA Division II community has raised more than $1.9 million in support of the Make-A-Wish® mission. SAAC committee members will be taking donations at all home games during October 5-15. If you would like to donate online please visit http://www.wish.org/NCAADII for more information.
