What Students Are Saying

3.81 Average Rating
Be prepared to study! It is difficult, but not impossible to get good marks here, and go seek help whenever you need it! Take a tour, they are available daily and can show you many aspects of the college life that you would like to know. People here are friendly and eager to lend a hand; Apply!
Talisa from Denver, CO
If you are interested in going to Regis University, I would suggest getting involved in extracurriculars that intrest you! While it is important to be academically successful, Regis admissions tends to look at the individual as a whole rather than just numbers. Students who have leadership roles, experience working with others, and who have been recognized for their passions in specific areas thrive at Regis.
Katie from Denver, CO
I will never forget this advice that was given to me: Because Regis is such a "tight-knit community", you're best off making a few friends, preferably a small group of friends. Regis is not necessarily cliquey, but finding people who you easily relate to and bond with is key to your social life at Regis. And be ready to challenge your beliefs and opinions, but always stay true to yourself. Understand that the professors are there for your best interest, and are more than willing to help with anything you may need.
Anon from Pueblo, CO
1. Apply for the honors program!
2. Take an English class with Dr. Palmer. (In fact, major in English and take a class with all of the Regis English professors; The entire department is amazing. But if you have to choose one, go with Dr. Palmer.)
3. Do not neglect your scholarship applications! This school really loves to give out scholarships (particularly to math and science majors), but you have to apply!
4. Get your work done early, and do the best you can, even on the little assignments. Teachers know when you're not giving them your best, and Regis teachers are not afraid to call you on it.
5. Get involved! Regis has so much to offer in terms of extra curricular activities, you just need to take advantage of it! Plus, clubs are a great way to meet people! I wouldn't have any of my current friends if I hadn't gotten involved my Freshman year.
6. Live in O'Connell Hall. I choose DeSmet Hall my Freshman year because the rooms are slightly bigger, but the rooms in DeSmet are arranged so ridiculously (particularly the heater and the shelves, which can't be moved) that in practice they're a lot smaller.
Joanna from Pueblo, CO
Regis University offers this trip called the first Tracks Trip that I would highly recommend. It's about a week long trip right before school starts, and you get to rock-climb, hike, go white water rafting and spend time with a bunch of really fun people. You meet a lot of new freshman so when school starts you already have a ton of friends. Also when classes come around, just go to class, because some teachers take attendance and the others that don't still notice if you are there or not. Depending on how often you go to class the teacher may like you more. With that, get to know your teachers!! They can be your best friend and end up helping you a lot through a class. They are willing to do A Lot for their students, so don't pass up this advantage of small classes. Also DON'T FORGET TO HAVE FUN!! Half of college is having fun! So don't forget to get out and explore.
Jake from Evergreen, CO
Visit the campus in the fall and during the winter. You need to get a good idea of what the campus is like during all times of the year. Talk to an advisor, make sure you know exactly what you need to do to get in, stay in, and finish your college career in a reasonable amount of time.
Finally, try to talk to some current students who attend Regis. Get their perspective on it, ask any questions you may have, and see if the crowd seems like the type of crowd you would choose to be around.
Danielle from Franktown, CO
1) Visit campus, it's small and beautiful and just minutes away from downtown Denver, and also close to the pristine Rocky Mountains. 2) Look for scholarships, because they are everywhere. 3) Get super involved because you will meet tons of different people and make great friends and 4) Don't hesitate to ask questions because to the people here you are more than just you're tuition dollars; they really want to help you with your education and your personal development.
Alexis from Peetz, CO
I would tell prospective students to be prepared to volunteer. Regis is big on service learning, their motto being men and women in service of others. Regis values giving back to the community and a lot of classes require some type of volunteering that goes along with your class work.
