Last weekend, on March 22nd, admitted students had the opportunity to experience campus life at Regis University through the event called Basecamp. In Basecamp, the guests were given a tour of the campus, a mock class, fun activities to participate in, and an opportunity of staying overnight on campus with a college student.
The tour of the campus was a great in-depth experience to understand the campus itself. These tours went to many locations on campus, such as the first-year residence halls, the Student Center, the gym, and more! The tour guides played a massive role by talking and explaining all the features that each location offers, which gave a greater understanding of the campus. With these tours going on, mock classes were also set up for the guests. These mock classes served to show the proper in-class experience they will have if they come to Regis.
At 6:00 PM, Basecamp guests that were staying overnight met with their college student hosts in the Mountain View Room. After meeting their hosts, the guests ate dinner with their hosts at the Main Cafe, and then headed back to the Mountain View Room to play a fun game of Nerdology. Just in case you are wondering, Nerdology is an interactive trivia game where groups find answers to questions about pop-culture. After Nerdology, which ended around 8:45 PM, the guests staying overnight left with their hosts to go to their dorms. The next day, the Basecamp guests went up to Copper Mountain for snow tubing.
The reason for the Basecamp experience is to show the students that will be attending school at Regis next year the Regis lifestyle. The guests that attended were able to understand the inner workings of life on Regis University and all the features and benefits that come along with it.
