Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

The small class sizes and personal attention from the professors is unique and very helpful. The counsellors are focused on helping every student to attain his/her goals and there is extra help everywhere. The school also offers a guaranty that if you do not graduate in 4 years, you can continue to attend until you earn your degree at no extra charge.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I am learning alot, not just about the academics that my courses address, but also about myself. I feel like this is the perfect atmosphere in which to grow up, and at the same time feel safe. College is very different than high school, some people fail because they are still looking for the hand-holding that one gets in high school. At Regis, they don't just throw you our there, they explain why it's time to push away from the coddling and grow up, and they help you to do that.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

There is no football team, so a football player should not attemd. This is a small school, anyone looking for a "party school" should look elsewhere.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Having grown up in a town of roughly 8,000 people and 2 hours from anything the world often seemed small. Peoples' lives revolved around that town and making a living. They focused on their families, friends, and retirement. Many of my classmates concentrated on sports and graduating with that golden 4.0. All of these things are respectable goals, but attending a college in a city of 2.5 million people changes the way the world looks and feels. The thousands of faces seen every day rushing from point A to point B and back again made me realize how large this world truly is. It threw in my face the fact that most of my accomplishments to date were insignificant in the scope of life. This revealation coupled with a college built around morals and helping the world altered my perspective on what it means to truly live and be happy during this crazy thing we call life. My college experienced changed me for the better. It showed me that I share this world with 7 billion other people and a life well lived comes from works of service, because when you change the world you change yourself.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish I knew about the amount of financial aid the school provides its students with before coming here. I decided on attending this college late in my college planning and lost out on aid due to the fact that it was already taken or the deadlines for the scholarships already expired.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

I truly love this school, the campus is beautiful and the people are genuinely nice and easy to talk to, but the tuition has been hard to meet due to the fact that it's a private school. The food in the cafeteria is also just cafeteria food. It isn't disgusting, but it isn't exactly gourmet or sit down quality.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Regis University has prepared me for the graduate level educational experience and the career path that I have chosen, that of a nursing educator. The Jesuit values and emphasis on service learning have deepened my understanding and appreciation of the abilities I have, and "How I ought to live" in service to my family, community and country.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Regis University places significant emphasis on Jesuit Values, and service learning. The educational expectations are demanding, but worthwhile. The result is an education that one can be proud of, and well prepared for the workplace. Serious learners only, party animals need not apply.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

College was a lot different than what I thougt it was going to be. I have learned a lot of valuable knowledge like being on time and what it will be like in the working world. I've been at community college trying to save money up so I can go to a University. I've gotten a lot of core classes out of the way which I'm happy about. I'm doing everything I can to go to college with minimal amout of debt when I get out. Even if I do live under a mountian of debt in the end it will be well worth getting an education and knowledge for a better future.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

5. Ability to Adapt: two weeks in and I was already able to ignore (or at least repress a scream at the sight of) the giant hairball in the corner of the shower. 4. Independence: No curfew, but no safety net either. 3. Knowledge: A given? Maybe. But it is still undeniably significant. 2. Financial Responsibility: No more pocket money. More like "stay in my pocket money". 1. Gratitude: Count my blessings? I never realized my fingers and toes were not sufficient.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Any person more interested in an Animal House/Van Wilder-esque social experience than their actual education would probably be somewhat unhappy with the Regis party scene. However, who am I to decide the student body? Even a hard-core partier could simply drive up to Boulder or down to FoCo for a party fix. Every kind of person should attend Regis, because experiencing diversity is a major component of a real college adventure.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The aspect I find most frustrating about Regis University is the lack of available treadmills in the gym. Shallow, right? Well, running is my drug-I need it every day. Sometimes, however, I have a limited amount of time to devote to running and I cannot fit a long run around the community into my schedule. On these days, I venture across campus to the gym in hopes of a quick fix. You can imagine my frustration, then, when all three (only three!) treadmills are occupied by fellow devotees. Help!

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

The first advice I would give myself would be go to school right away! Waiting until you are older just makes the whole process harder and you miss out on the exciting college experience. Also by going to college right out of high school you have less commitment on your time and money. Going through college should be an experience that helps you make better choices for your life in the long term. I would also tell myself to check out as many colleges as possible and find the one that is the best fit for you. Every university has it's own personality and taking the time to explore that is worth the investment and gives you a better chance at success.

What kind of person should attend this school?

I attend the adult education branch of Regis University. This program is geared towards the adult learner that may be working full time and have a family. I love the small classes and the teachers have worked in the fields that they are teaching. This brings about great discussions and better learning. I would reccomend this program for any adult that is looking to earn their degree.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Like Tolstoy simply stated, " If you want to be happy, be." No one is going to hand you happiness on a silver platter. It is up to you to hike up the mountain of success. Let me tell you, it is a long journey full of frustration, confusion, and self doubt. As a high school senior, I was constantly reassured that college would just work itself out. Teacher after teacher, counselor after counselor, I did not realize the implications of "graduation" until I actually graduated. I would like to say that college is part of the "real world," but it just isn't simply because people in the "real world" actually get paid. College students have deadlines, headaches, cram sessions, anxiety attacks, and all nighters while they rack thousands of dollars of debt through loans. With all that being said, I can not think of an experience in the world that offers people such ability to fully reach their potentials. College is like all the gear that makes climbing the mountain of success attainable. So to you, high school senior, look forward to the future and choose happines.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

Although some may consider a small student body size a blessing, I think it makes things ten times harder when everyone has their own little clique. Bascially, if you are not in a clique by the second semester, good luck! Also, Regis is a Catholic Jesuit university which means that there are rules based around Catholic values. For instance, nobody of the opposite sex can sleep in your room, etc. If you are anti-religious values, then this is not the college for you.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Like I said before, someone who is not willing to respect the values of the Jesuits. Also, anyone who is not willing to work hard. Regis is by no means a party school!

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Regis University is best known for the academic rigor it provides. The school is an example of the Jesuit Tradition and the emphasis that this order has placed on academics. This University embodies the philosophy of each student's place in the world and how each individual can contribute to various communities: campus, city, country, world, and humanity.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If I could provide some insight to myself as a Senior it would focus upon the need for time management. I thought I was busy in High School balancing academics, sports, homework, work, and community service, but college life is far busier. A college student needs to be far more cautious with time management. One big factor: more opportunities for social without a parent reminding you of different time lines. I would advise myself to schedule study time that is not allowed to be interrupted. These interruptions can build and suddenly it is test time! Good Luck! P.S. Don't forget to schedule eating!

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

Prior to coming to Regis I thought that I was aware of how important time management is to a college student. I now know that time management is of utmost importance. A student can be very intelligent, but without time management the educational opportunities are lost.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Regis University is best known for their Jesuit Catholic tradition. As the only Jesuit Catholic school in Colorado, Regis is highly sought after and has many applicants every year. Secondly, Regis is also known for the quality of nurses their program educates. Nurses from Regis University are generally guaranteed a position shortly after graduation with little or no competition.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If the opportunity arose to go back in time to give myself advice as a high school senior, armed with the knowledge and experience I have today, there are a few things I would advise: 1. Organization is extremely important! Regardless of the task, the class, or even the assignment, maintaining an organized system will help facilitate learning by making finding documents easier, notes will be located faster, and you will always know what lies ahead. 2. Apply for scholarships. Everyone wants to believe that they are super-heroes, that they can do it all on their own. I/you can't. Applying for scholarships will help relieve your stress because you won't have to worry about working to cover bills while in school. Applying for scholarships would also facilitate your learning because you will have more time to spend studying. 3. Just get it done. Whatever arises- get it done! Homework- get it done! Studying- get it done! Rest- very importantly get it done! Exercise- get it done! You will have opportunities to go to school, but why waste time and money? Following these three somewhat easy pieces of advice will make it easier. Just get it done!

What kind of person should not attend this school?

The person who should not attend this school is someone who is not interested in putting in the time to do the work required to receive good grades. Regis is a wonderful, prestigious school that is quite costly but cares about serving and ensuring that the whole person (body, spirit, and mind) are all taken care of. Anyone who is self-centered and not interested in bettering themselves and the world as a whole should not apply.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would tell myself to be sure to attend a class at every college I was even remotely considering. It is a good idea not only to visit every campus possible while looking at schools, but to also attend classes at each one to see what they are like. Maybe a large lecture hall class of 300 students is okay with you if want the large school party scene, but maybe you can handle a calm campus for the sake of getting to know your professors personally. Furthermore, do not base your decision just on the class visited at one college: visit MANY colleges, and look into all of the information you can find on the department that offers the major of your choice. For example, as a senior I was looking at how Spanish classes were taught. I would tell myself to also look at how well developed the entire Foreign Language department was, and how many professors were around to provide assistance and look at other languages. I would tell myself to go on as many over-night stays at as many colleges as possible, in order to get a feel for the social aspects of the school.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

Modern and Classical languages at Regis are terrible. The French department is depressingly small (one full-time professor), as is Ancient Greek, Latin and German. We only offer Italian as an idependent study. The Spanish department is the only foreign language with a thriving teaching base. While Spanish is a beneficial "foreign" language for students to learn, this really limits the Humanities students from getting a full perspective of world languages. Regis boasts a good core of a Liberal Arts education, but fails to provide quality Liberal Arts classes to get a Humanities degree.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Anyone who isn't either wanting to go on to medical school or teach. Regis University seems to be designed for individuals who want a biology degree, a chemistry degree, or a nursing degree to go on to medical school. The Education department is also very good. This school is based largely in exact science majors. Anyone wanting to get a good education in biblical and ancient languages would be hard-pressed to thrive. Anyone wanting to learn a modern language other than Spanish would have a difficult time. Our English department, while growing, is limited as well.
