From the School

Regis offers undergraduate majors and graduate/professional programs to prepare students for in-demand fields such as nursing, health, public service, education, business and communication. Our curriculum also provides a firm foundation in the liberal arts, sciences, and social sciences that expand our students' skills and perspectives. To broaden the Regis College learning experience, this fall we have transformed into an all-iPad institution, by offering iPad's with specific apps tailored to the campus community. Among our newest facilities are synthetic turf playing fields, an eight-lane track, tennis courts, and softball complex. In addition to our evolving campus, we welcome our 10th president, Antoinette M. Hays, PhD, RN. Passionate about Regis, she brings energy and dedication to the campus.

From The School

Regis College offers several special academic opportunities that allow students to explore subjects they are interested in and to customize their learning experience. The college offers a number of areas in which students can extend their learning beyond the classroom, including seminars, off-campus study, study abroad, individualized study, pre-professional programs, special cooperative degree programs, special academic honors programs, and Regis service learning. Students can study abroad for a summer, a semester, or a year. Regis is affiliated with Regent's College in London, England; University College Cork in Cork, Ireland; and Kyoto Notre Dame University in Kyoto, Japan. Additionally, students may receive credit for studying anywhere in the world through programs at other American universities.

Students Say

Regis College is "a small, Catholic liberal arts college" in the suburbs of Boston. The highlights of this "terrific institution" include "rigorous academics," "small classes," and a "close-knit" and "very diverse" student population. The "excellent nursing program" is "very popular." The "welcoming" administration is "always available." "Here at Regis, if you have a problem, there is always someone that can help you," promises a senior. The "extremely supportive and encouraging" professors are "very knowledgeable in their subject areas." "As with anywhere, you will have your teachers who suck" but most professors "really care about their students" and "really enjoy getting to know each student on a personal level." "I have been blessed to have met several very inspiring professors," says a happy junior. "They give you so much attention in and out of the classroom." Regis has been going through something of a transition since going coed, though "The typical student is female because it was an all-women’s college until recently."

Overall

From The School

On average, 70 percent of the undergraduate student body lives on campus, and there are a number of different ways that students can get involved in campus activities. Over thirty active clubs and organizations on campus are open to the entire student body. Regis College is proud of its student population and the different backgrounds and heritages they represent. The diversity of the students, clubs, and organizations is of utmost importance to the college. Among these organizations are the SGA (student government association); BSO (Black Student Association) ; LASO (Latin American Student Organization); AAA (Asian-American Association); CAB (Campus Activities Board); the Tower Society, student ambassadors that provide tours of campus; as well as clubs for social work, dance company, theatre company, commuters, nursing students, and many more. Recent student initiatives include the formation of the dance company and the Cape Verdean Student Association, as well as the renovation of the student center, complete with a cybercafe and an arcade.

Students Say

Almost anyone can fit in and have a wonderful experience at Regis, reports a junior. "Regis has been trying hard to diversify its student population, and that shows here on campus." "A wide variety" of "social, ethnic, and socioeconomic groups" call this campus home. "There is a huge range of ethnic groups," says a student. While there are "people from all over the world who speak many different languages," the "typical student is your ‘typical’ student." The undergrads at Regis report that they are "friendly," "talkative," "intelligent," "hardworking," "goal-oriented," and "easy to get along with." They are also "energetic, outspoken, and generous." "Most aren’t that into partying and just like to have fun with friends."

Overview

From The School

Regis is located on a beautiful suburban campus in Weston, Massachusetts, and enrolls 1800 undergraduate and graduate men and women. Our size fosters a strong feeling of community and a personalized approach to the success of each student. In our active community, there's a lively mix of clubs and activities, along with a roster of NCAA Division III athletics. Our campus, situated on 132 landscaped acres of a former estate, is beautiful, historic, updated, and just 12 miles west of Boston.

Students Say

Regis boasts a "quiet," "calm," and "beautiful" campus "in a great area" 12 miles from Boston. It’s "small enough so everyone knows everyone else" and there is a real sense of community. "The students value that community and are sentimental about school traditions." "A lot of students participate in some type of sport." Student organizations "try very hard to hold activities on weekends that appeal to students," though most "go home," which can make for a "low-fun atmosphere." Otherwise, "Students spend time with friends during the week while attending classes" and there’s a "nice swimming pool." One student notes that "Regis has become almost a commuter school." "The campus is deserted on the weekend." A shuttle is available for students who want to venture off campus, but "Having a car is almost necessary." "For fun many people leave campus and go to other schools for parties." Of course, "the city of Boston" provides an endless array of things to do.
