The Three Components of the first-year experience

The Three Components of the first-year experience

The Foundational Core

During your first year, you will take a fall writing seminar and a spring speaking-intensive seminar. These classes will build a strong foundation in what we call eloquentia perfecta, or academic excellence in writing and speaking for the greater good.

Faculty Advising

Your fall writing seminar professor will also serve as your first-year advisor. They will help you reflect on your transition to college and connect you to the many resources available to students.

first-year experience learning community

Your Foundational Core courses will be composed of the same students in your fall writing class. As a cohort, you will learn together and support one another. Your entire incoming class will also come together multiple times for shared reflection and experiences.

Do I have to go to Orientation? When do I need to arrive?
New Student Orientation is crucial for your success at Regis and that's why we require it for all new students. We ask you to check in on Thursday before activities begin and then participate in all activities throughout the weekend.

Why is it important to RSVP?
We ask that you RSVP for Orientation so that we have an accurate count of attendees. When we know who is attending, we can make sure we have enough food for you (plus some in case you want seconds).

What if my family can't attend Orientation?
Although we hope your family can also attend Orientation, we understand that they might not be able to. Don't worry, even though we have activities planned for your family during this weekend, the majority of events are geared toward new students.


What should I wear?
Dress for Orientation Weekend is casual; shorts, jeans and T-shirts are appropriate for all activities.
