Students share their thoughts on what makes a Jesuit education different

Regis prides itself on being the Rocky Mountain region’s only Jesuit university, but what does that mean? A Jesuit education offers meaningful benefits to students of all beliefs (yes, you read that right – you don’t have to be Catholic to go here). Read on to learn how our students define the Jesuit experience.

“A Jesuit education makes one thirsty for social change, constantly inspires more purposeful thoughts, and ignites a passion deep within that continually calls for intentional servant leadership and action with and for the greater good of others. It is challenging in that it always asks more of you inside the classroom, within service-learning community partnerships and in the exploration of the deepest question, ‘How ought we to live?’” 

    - Ellen Lundwall, Regis College, English/Peace and Justice Studies

“Being Jesuit educated, my purpose is to make a difference in the lives of others. My success begins with bridging the gap across different cultures, religions and philosophies. Regis University has satiated my hunger for learning, and I am proud to be Jesuit educated.”

    - Mary Budnack, College for Professional Studies, Applied Psychology

“A Jesuit education prepares us to make a lifelong commitment to bettering our communities and to following the principles of social justice. By living those values, we teach and inform others so that they might go forward and do the same, allowing society to grow collectively throughout time."
