First-Year Students

Why Choose Regis?

As Colorado’s only Jesuit Catholic university, students of all backgrounds and faiths find a home here, bonded together by the common purpose of creating a better world. Every aspect of the Regis experience emphasizes the importance of critical thinking, achieving a global perspective and standing up for those who do not have a voice. We strive to develop each student as a whole person—not just in the academic sense, but socially, emotionally and spiritually.

At the same time, the Regis community also knows how to have fun. Located between the thriving Denver metropolis and the magnificent Rocky Mountains, Regis offers students the best of Colorado living—whether that’s bustling city life, arts and culture, or easy access to some of the best hiking, skiing, camping and wilderness adventure right in our backyard.

Our small class sizes, low student-to-faculty ratio and strong focus on a well-rounded liberal arts curriculum guarantee that students aren’t just another face in the crowd, but a new voice in our community. Our faculty don’t just give lectures—they are scholars in every sense of the word, and serve as mentors to our students. At Regis, we live our values. We welcome you to join us in becoming part of something greater.
