Register for Sophomore IN For additional information about the Sophomore IN, please contact Thanh Nguyen or Brent Vogel. The Fall Retreat component of the Sophomore IN program gives students the opportunity to meet new people in their class, learn about integral resources available to sophomores and participate with their peers in a competition designed to test their knowledge of everything from the capital of Egypt to how many calories are burned while doing a push up. This half-day event brings together program participants for lunch and gives them the chance to visit and learn about many of the different offices on campus – all with a little bit of friendly competition thrown in! Offices who have participated in the Fall Retreat in the past include: University Ministry Wellness & Recreation Study Abroad Internships Career Services Office of Diversity, Engagement and Inclusion Office of Counseling and Personal Development Library Violence Prevention Program Learning Commons Each student in the Sophomore IN program will be assigned a Regis faculty or staff mentor based on his or her interest areas. Students will meet with their mentor at least once per semester to: Explore life after graduation Learn about areas of passion in more detail Locate new resources that can help them in the future Meet new people around Regis University and the community that can help with internships, graduate schools or careers In addition to one-on-one mentor-mentee meetings, students will attend two all-participant mentoring dinners and a trivia night! In keeping with the Jesuit tradition of “men and women in service of others”, the Sophomore IN program offers service opportunities for students in the program to impact the Regis and greater Denver community. The service opportunities are chosen, coordinated and led by students in the program. The service opportunities are planned throughout the spring semester, giving students multiple opportunities to serve the community around a variety of needs.
