I love my school. Everyone here is very friendly and they treat everyone very fairly.

I received only a little financial aid from my school. I am white so I am not considered a minority. I was not fortunate to get free money. I had to take multiple loans. I have to pay the rest myself. I have to make $1000.00 payments every month.

The nursing major is the most popular one on campus. It seems that everyone is trying to become a nurse. It is very competitive. Once you are in the program, you do have to work extremely hard. If you are responsible for another human beings life, you better have been paying attention in school. The standard are very high and it's because you are being trained on how to properly care for another human being.

The professors tell you on the first day what is expected of the student. College isn't like High school, you have to work hard and put in the effort. If you go to class and you do your reading and homework, you will succeed.

We have a great library with brand new computers. Our computers on campus are all new and they are all touch screens. They have the state of the art computer labs with great printers that have lots of options. We are all given a free Ipad at the beginning of the year. We are allowed to trade it in ever two years and once we successfully graduate we get to keep them. There are lots of cozy, quiet places to study. The student lounge has a pool table and people can hang out, eat socialize and spend time with friends.

The buildings are sort of far away so you have to walk outside to get from place to place. The weather affects people because when it's cold outside or it's raining, people hate going outside.

The food on campus isn't that great. They serve the same thing almost every week. About two weeks ago they started adding more of a variety of foods and I have been a little more happier. They do offer a bunch of gluten free foods and options. You get sick of the same thing all the time. They need to offer more of a variety. I think the school should offer some organic foods and more vegetarian meals.

If you come to school at 8am you will find a parking spot. If you have classes at 930 am, the likely hood of you finding a spot is pretty bad. You will either find a spot and have to walk at least a mile to class or you can park on the grass in the field and you will only have to walk a short distance.

There is an extremely diverse student population on campus. There are a lot of low income students that get to go to school for free. There are some really well off students but most of them are normal.

If you play sports you are required to go to study hall for 2 hours every day. Our school organizes all kinds of fun things to do all the time. They have movie night at least twice a month on a huge projector screen. They throw dances and parties once a month on a Thursday, if you have Friday classes in the morning, I suggest you skip them. They are fun but you will not be able to wake up for your 8am class. We have a cafeteria and a like lounge downstairs that you could choose to eat at. The school organizes lots of fun activities like scavenger hunts, rally's, decorating pumpkins, and all sorts of contest which you could win awesome prizes like flat screen t.v's, drake tickets, celtics, bruins games and money.

There really doesn't seem to be a problem with drugs or alcohol on this campus. We had a great person come speak to all the students during orientation about drugs and alcohol. His name is Chris Herren. He was a basketball legend but he let drugs destroy his life, his basketball future and his dreams. He changed his life around and he gives speeches to people of the effects of drugs and alcohol. He shares his story with everyone so he can make a difference. He wants us to be aware of what drugs and alcohol do. He also gave us statistics about how many people are affected by it. If you have an alcoholic father or mother, then you are 40 times more likely to become a drug user or an alcoholic like your parent. The school had him come back and talk to just the athletes about drugs and alcohol again. The school brought in a smashed car and had to open the doors with the jaws of life. They did this for alcohol awareness. They wanted to show kids what happens if you drink and drive.

We have zip cars on our campus that students can rent when ever they want. We have a shuttle that comes every half hour. It takes you to the local bus, train station drops you off at the Natick Mall or Shoppers World. If you want to call a taxi you can but they are very expensive. Your best bet is to bring your car to campus. Freshman aren't allowed to have their car on campus but everyone else is. There isn't that much parking on our campus but the school allows us to park on the grass in the field.
I have not done any internships. Since I am in the Nursing field, I have to do clinical's not internships. Clinical's are part of the nursing curriculum and the school helps you get into the different hospitals. Connections are everything these days. It helps when you go to nursing seminars and you network because that will help you out later on in life when you are looking for an internship, clinical or a job once you have successfully completed school.

I am very happy with choosing Nursing as my major. My career goal is to graduate from Regis College with my B.A degree in nursing. Regis College has a really great success rate on passing the NCLEX exam which you have to pass in the state of Massachusetts in order to receive your license to practice nursing in our state. My goal is to get a job in one of the top leading hospitals in the country; Boston Children's Hospital, Mass General or Brigham and Women's Hospital. I do not have any concerns about finding a job after I graduate because I know that once I start my clinicals in these hospitals, I will form a good relationship with my employers. I will work extra hard, put in a lot of effort and I am very confident that they will offer me a job! A lot of students from Regis College have told me that it has worked for them in the past and I am hoping that it will work for me as well. If that doesn't work, there are many opportunities for Regis College to help me find a job once I graduate and pass my NCLEX exam.

Living on campus helps you study more and do better in school. Commuters have a harder time studying. You are more likely to study more often if you live on campus and your friends are studying with you. If you play sports it is a requirement that you attend study hall every day for at least 2 hours. Students have a higher success rate by following these rules. College students could end up paying less then the fees of a dorm room if they choose to live off campus and share an apartment with other students. On the weekend most students go home so there isn't much of a life on campus on the weekends. Students who live about 5-6 hours away still go home on the weekends. Most of the dorms are co-ed. They have boys and girls living on different floors but in the same building. I think that it works to everyone's advantage.It is easy to make friends living on campus which you will keep for the rest of your lives!

Not many spots and you get tickets if you park anywhere but a designated spot.

Great education for my program. Campus is very small.

There isn't much around unless you go to another town or city.

The snow makes it hard to leave and get to campus.

It seems that Regis has good opportunities for transportation to Boston and clinicals.
