Guess which university had the most students chosen to share writing at the National Undergraduate Literature Conference this year? Hint: it wasn’t an Ivy League school.
Regis University continued its impressive showing at the conference with 18 English majors and minors accepted to present their scholarly or creative writing in 2014. That’s after having 13 chosen last year.
The conference was held April 3-5, at Weber State University in Ogden, Utah, and welcomed literature students and professors from across the country. Participants couldn’t help but notice the rather large contingent from a rather small school in Colorado.
“It was really interesting and exciting to have so many Regis students at the conference,” said Wren Craig, a junior double majoring in English and peace and justice studies. “I think it says a lot about our department. It shows that we have a department-wide commitment to quality academic and creative work, and that we have incredibly supportive professors who encourage us to put our work out into academia.”
Mark Bruhn, professor of English, believes that Regis’ considerable presence speaks not only to the quality of the department, but most importantly, to the caliber of its students.
“We might just be the proudest department on campus, and for all the right reasons – our students’ success!”

Good morning, Regis. #thisisregis #snow #cowx (at Regis University)
The rumors are true. Something delicious is brewing at Regis. In the fall, we will become the first in the region to offer a certificate in applied craft brewing, educating current and future craft brewers in #Denver – the heart of the industry – in the biology and business of brewing beer. #Craftbeer #CObeer #thisisregis (at Regis University)

Happy Blue & Gold Friday from the newest member of the School of Physical Therapy. JJ joined us this week as the newest service dog-in-training. He’s a little disappointed about not having as many friends to play with during spring break.
JJ is not the first service dog raised by PT students. For the past 18 months the school helped in raising Éclair, another yellow lab. Éclair has since moved on to her next phase of service training in California.
The School of Physical Therapy believes these projects can help students to better understand their future patients, as well as create a stronger sense of community.
