Student Sound Offs

"The University of Regina has a lot of hands-on learning in some faculties. It is easier to learn like this rather than reading a textbook and memorizing."

"A good-sized university, neither too large or small."

"People always say that Regina is a dirty city and they don't like it. I moved here and I am so glad I did. It is a beautiful city with less snobby people."

"I think that most people don't realize how much better Luther and Campion classes are compared to the main campus's classes."

"It is just big enough that it does not take longer than 10 minutes to get from one building to the next, which saves a lot of time. It is a really nice campus that has been in the process of many upgrades and already looks a lot better."

"The fact that the University of Regina has the First Nations campus deserves more attention. People need to know that this facility and its opportunities are available."

"The UofR seems outdated with respect to their technology. The wireless network is not available everywhere on campus, the technology in classrooms needs to be updated, the computers in labs are very outdated and not enough professors use online materials."

"Very high levels of apathy. Most students appear to be keeping their heads down, and keeping to themselves or their small circle of friends from high school.

""The Faculty of Education is widely known as one of the best teaching preparation schools in North America. They also offer a program, Arts Education, that is the only thing like it in North America."

"Our residences are some of the best in Canada. They are brand new. You don't have to share little dorm rooms with others."
