4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's a gorgeous campus, with excellent faculty and guidance! I personally have a very difficult diet where I have Celiac disease and I choose to be vegan. The kitchen handles this beautifully! I couldn't ask for better grub!

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Regis professors care greatly about their students. The professors are very knowledgeful and are willing to help you out academically. They want you to learn. The academics are challenging. Be ready to spend time studying and be ready to back up your thoughts and opinions in class. Classes tend to be discussion based and professors will challenge you so you can develop critical thinking skills. There are many fascinating classes, though it can be challenging to get into the classes you want if you are a freshman or sophomore. I highly recommend the Honors program as well as the living learning communities. The Honors program tends to use classical literature in their seminars so be prepared to read some complex texts. The Honors program is more time consuming, but completely worth it.

The student life is decent. The sports teams are quite good, though the student body doesn't attend the games in full force. There are activities to do, but not as much as large schools. I liked that there weren't an overwhelming amount of activities all the time. It allowed me to be involved and attend activities, but still have time to study. Regis is only a few minutes from downtown Denver and there is plenty to do there.

The downsides are the cost and the administration. I only know of a couple students who managed to make it through 4 years of Regis with under $20k in debt at the end. These students either came from extremely poor families or had a parent working at the school. The administration is very disjointed from the school itself. Try not to piss them off because it's a pain dealing with them. Jesuit values also do not translate very well to the administrative side of the school. Administration tends to see dollar signs, stats, and the school's reputation instead of human beings, lives, and morals.

Overall, a good school with excellent education.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The small class sizes are great, but the social life isn't what the typical college experience is perceived to be. Professors are helpful when you show effort on your end. People are pretty friendly as well.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My school is relatively small in comparison to others in my area. It's religiously affiliated and has strong core values that students are expected to strive for. My largest class thus far hasn't topped thirty students. Every professor I've had has known my first and last name. Many that I've talked to after having taken their class recognize and remember me. All of my professors have been easily accessible for help or academic advice when I need it. I feel like my classes are challenging and interesting. The students at my school are kind, driven and mature. I wouldn't want to go anywhere else.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I do enjoy the school. However, i di feel some of the courses can be done online as well as in class. I live 80 miles away, so travel makes it hard.

Overall Experience: I find the instructors very helpful and very interested in my sucess

2 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Applying to Regis was a great experience, but when I discovered my Junior year that Regis was not supporting me in my dreams and aspirations the expectation that I had upon them of supporting me in the hard times I was having was significantly disappointing. My choice of leaving Regis was not so much personally in the end, but health wise, thus I had no choice and the support they gave me as I looked to transfer to a school closer to my parents in California was more than atrocious.

I got a refund back for my tuition which was good, but when I applied to transfer to San Francisco I learned that none (NONE OF MY THREE YEARS OF GOING TO REGIS CLASS CREDITS TRANSFERRED) to my new school. I am disappointed in this, because I was not a slacking student. I cared about my school work, and at the time really appreciated the professionalism Regis put on its students from the beginning. Unfortunately, now looking back at my experience at Regis, I do not know if I would recommend it to someone, not because it isn't a good school, but because of the support they give when something goes wrong that makes you leave their school.

OTHER THINGS:

PARKING: When I went to Regis, we didn't have to pay for parking. Everyone could find a spot pretty easily. Now with the raising admittance rate its harder to find a parking spot and Regis (from what i have heard) will/has started to charge $10 a day for parking. This is SCAM.

FOOD: The food at Regis SUCKS. Everything is bland and boring. The cafeteria has comment cards to rate how they're doing, and every time i would give them constructive criticism the staff would always take it down.

Overall Experience: If you come to Regis University for your education, be prepared to work and work hard. During my bachelor's degree, some of the accelerated classes with content was a push to complete in 5 or 8 week formats. That being said, looking back after graduation, Regis really prepared me to understand the importance of time management, made me a better writer, and taught me how to prioritize my work load. I've been able to transfer these skills into my new job effectively and I am a stronger and better worker.

Have the opportunity to see my academic advance. Im

Been experiencing a lot of things such as having a bilingual program, and very good professors around me.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love the small school environment. You see a alot of familiar faces which helps with making friends faster. They have fun activities on campus as well as clubs, sporting events, and intramural sports.

4 College Student

Campus Food: I didn't eat on campus very often.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The rent in Denver has gone up in price and it is almost the same to just live on campus and not have to worry about parking

Party Scene: There are parties off campus

2 College Sophomore

Administration: You must check in all guests when entering the residence halls (even grandmas) which is very annoying and a hassle. There are also bags checks 4 times a year in all underclassmen residence halls.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: They will help out with what you need, but you must stay on them in order for the help. The squeaky wheel gets the grease!

Campus Food: The food is healthy in the main cafe, however, it's not always what you might want. Going to Claver gives you more options, but still might not fill your cravings.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Rather small rooms. The distance to everything on campus is great and it is easy to find everything. The RAs try to put on interesting programs for the resident and it allows the students to experience Denver and other activities that they may have never gotten a chance to do.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Again the places around campus don't seem like much at first but there are many places if you know where to look. There are many houses to rent, but you have to find a lot of people to live with to help pay for rent.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are many places in the highlands and right off of wadsworth. If you're not from Colorado or don't know the area then ask because I'm from Arvada which is 15 min from Regis so I know a ton of places, but if you don't know the area then oh might have more difficulty finding many options so ask a local.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The campus safety and rules are a little overboard. You have to check people into the dorms which is extremely annoying, but it's a safe campus and there's security all the time.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: The party scene at Regis Isn't prominent, but there are many house parties surrounding the school. It isn't a problem and getting back or having a safe place to stay isn't that hard. Depending on nights and the place you go to it could be a smaller party that doesn't get to wild or you can get a packed house.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: I received many scholarships from Regis and with the help of financial aid and FASFA I got all of my college paid off with no expense to my parents! I only took one thousand out for loans which I've paid off most of it already and I have no need to apply for a loan in the future.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Regis is a close-knit community because it is so small that you know a majority of the student body, which is great when you are walking through campus, saying "Hi!" to most of the people you see. It gives you a sense of togetherness. The professors are amazing at Regis. They are experienced and knowledgeable about their subjects, and they want you to know and understand as much as you can about their subject, so they will do whatever it takes to accomplish this goal.
