At Regis University, the Office of Residence Life is committed to providing students with quality services, a safe community environment conducive to learning and spiritual growth which supports the Jesuit tradition of "Cura Personalis", care for the whole person. In conjunction with our mission, we have a few Living Learning Communities available for our students that live on campus. Students who are a part of these communities can expect to live around those who are dedicated to their passion, interest, or academic discipline while receiving the support of a trained staff.
Residence Life provides three different Living Learning Communities to choose from. For first-year students, we offer two communities: Magis Experience and Colorado Outdoor Recreation Experience (C.O.R.E.). Upperclassmen (sophomores, juniors, seniors) may join the Ignatian Leadership community.
The Magis Experience
The Magis (pronounced mah-jis) Experience is a community that provides female first-year students a focus on leadership, service, and community building. Magis participants are leadership and service oriented students that want to do more, not only for the Regis community, but also for the community surrounding our campus and the global community that we are all a part of. Participants are enrolled in a weekly credit-bearing course and participate in multiple service opportunities each semester. The Magis Experience provides a close-knit community for students to discuss and examine their own experiences as well as the Jesuit values.
C.O.R.E. (Colorado Outdoor Recreational Experience)
This community is intended for first-year students who have an interest in a variety of easy to moderate outdoor activities. Some examples of activities and programs include hiking, running, cycling, snowshoeing, climbing, skiing, snowboarding, trailblazing, and much more depending on the season. Students who are involved with this community can expect to live around those who share a passion for the outdoors.
The purpose of this LLC is to provide an environment that supports student growth and development, community standards, scholarship, civility, citizenship, service and leadership. This community focuses on the question at the heart of the University's mission: "How ought we to live?
