Wellness and Recreation

REACH OUT TO BRAD TO APPROVE CONTENT


Wellness and Recreation aims to provide Regis students with the tools, experiences, and knowledge to combat the stress and fatigue associated with university academics and college life. Reoccurring involvement with the type of programs provide by Wellness and Recreation (including Intramural Sports, Club Sports, Outdoor Adventure Program, Fitness and Wellness, Choices Peer Education, and the Fitness Center) has been demonstrated to increase students' overall feeling of well-being as well as increase self-confidence and concentration levels.


Wellness and Recreation recognizes that students attend Regis first and foremost to pursue their academic goals and we are happy to collaborate with faculty to increase student success. Recent collaborations with the Health and Exercise Science program to develop an internship for aspiring personal trainers, our ongoing partnership with the School of Physical Therapy, and our experiential learning partnerships through the Outdoor Adventure Program all highlight our commitment to seeing students succeed in your classroom.


If you feel Wellness and Recreation could help assist your students in the future please don’t hesitate to reach out by calling x4316, or better yet stop by the Fitness Center located within the Coors Life Directions Center. Keep in mind that services such as Personal Training, Group Exercise and access to the Fitness Center are free current faculty and staff.

The Learning Commons

REACH OUT TO LEARNING COMMONS TO APPROVE CONTENT


The Learning Commons houses Regis’ writing center, tutoring services, and academic success workshops. Located on the second floor of Clarke Hall, The Learning Commons offers this support to all students, faculty, staff, and alumni free of charge. Writing coaches are available in person and online, and can assist with any stage of the writing process, from understanding an assignment better to putting on the final touches. The Writing Center is not a proofreading or editing service, however, so students' full engagement in the writing process is all that’s required. Tutoring services are primarily offered through in-person meetings, though limited online tutoring support is also available. Tutors can work with students in groups or individually to help them catch up, keep up, or understand more fully their academic work. Finally, academic success workshops address a wide variety of relevant, up-to-date topics by experts from the Regis community.


Visit regis.edu/tlc or call 303-964-6591 for further information. To schedule an appointment with a tutor or writing coach, visit regis.mywconline.com

REACH OUT TO AMY HAMMERICH RE: EXERCISE PRESRIC. COURSE-- SEE IF SHE WANTS TO BE HIGHLIGHTED AGAIN THIS YEAR


With collaboration from Professor Amy Hammerich, students in her Exercise Prescription course during the spring of 2015 were offered an internship opportunity as a personal trainer with the department of Wellness and Recreation. Four interested applicants were selected for this program which officially began during the fall 2016 semester. These newly certified trainers gained their first practical experience working for the department, building valuable experience as a trainer, while also increasing the volume of clients that Wellness and Recreation is able to handle. We see it as a win-win!
