Sure we’re nationally and internationally recognized for academic and research excellence, but we’ve also got a few unique perks up our sleeve. When you choose to study at the U of R, you’re getting more than an excellent education, you’re also partnering with an institution that truly cares about your success.

A SUCCESS GUARANTEE We’re so confident in the quality of our education that we created the UR Guarantee – the only program of its kind in Canada. So how does it work? If you’re a newly admitted or transfer student with 30 credit hours or less of post-secondary classes and you do not secure career-related employment within six months of graduation, you will be eligible to come back for another year of undergraduate classes FREE of charge (yes, we actually cover all tuition and course fees). See the advantages on page 7, 17 and 23!

INTERNATIONAL EXPERIENCES From the ancient temples and futuristic cityscapes of Asia, to the bustling cities and romantic scenery of Europe, to the sophistication of Washington and the beauty and heat of Mexico in North America, to the natural wonders of South America, U of R students have a life changing opportunity to gain academic credit and travel the world. Having an international experience abroad adds greater value to your U of R degree and gives you a competitive edge that sets you apart. So why not take a chance and open your world! Page 4

HANDS-ON EXPERIENCE YOU CAN BANK ON! We pioneered the Co-operative (Co-op) Education Work Experience Program in Western Canada and have been committed to it ever since. The Co-op Program enables you to gain valuable experience-based learning while pursuing almost any undergraduate degree. Co-op Programs are now available in nearly 50 areas of study and helped our students earn more than $10 million in 2015! Page 6

RESIDENCE Living on campus allows you to be part of an exclusive community where you’re sure to make many lifelong friends. Connect and collaborate with students from around the globe who share similar interests. Residence life provides the convenience of living just steps from everything you need combined with all the comforts of home. Page 8

SMALLER CLASSES, BIGGER OPPORTUNITIES At the U of R, professors and classmates know your name. You’ll learn in smaller group settings that allow for discussion, interaction, and relationship development. You’ll have greater access to your professors. You’ll have a chance to ask more questions and get more one-on-one time. Professors can eventually connect you with great career opportunities in your field or write glowing letters of recommendation for grad school because they have the chance to get to know you!

LIVING-LEARNING COMMUNITIES A Living-Learning Community (LLC) is a cohort of students, grouped together in residence because they share similar interests, values, or academic programs. It’s all about bringing like-minded people closer together. These communities make it easy for students to make friends, study together, and access programming designed with their needs in mind. Our mission is to support student success and enhance residents’ university experience. The 2016/2017 Living-Learning Communities are:

Social Justice and Leadership Interested in helping others? Other students are too! Live in this LLC and make the world a better place together.

Health and Wellness  healthy you is a better you. This community will support A your mind, heart, and body.

FEDERATED COLLEGES

One degree, four ways to achieve it.

CAMPION COLLEGE Campion College is your place to explore new ideas, find your voice, and discover your passion. We will challenge you to dig deep, to apply theory to practice, and to form a thorough understanding of the world. Our graduates not only find successful careers, but also become leaders of change who are making a difference in their local communities and across the globe. Here are some of the ways we help to ensure your success while working toward your U of R degree: •  Personalized academic advising from the beginning of your academic program to graduation

WHAT’S THE DEAL WITH FEDERATED COLLEGES?

• Additional scholarship and bursary opportunities

At the U of R we realize that not everyone approaches university the same way. Your experience should be exactly what YOU want it to be. Each person is unique with individual needs and expectations. You should be able to customize your experience to best achieve your academic goals. This is why your University of Regina degree can be pursued through any one of our three federated colleges. Federated colleges offer specialized programs and services in a comfortable and encouraging environment.

• Access to mentor programs and leadership opportunities

WHAT’S THE CATCH? THERE ISN’T ONE! Federated college students have a unique supportive community within the larger U of R community. They get one-on-one academic advising and access to additional scholarships and bursaries. Federated college students are still U of R students with access to U of R courses, services, and scholarships. They pay the same U of R tuition and graduate with a U of R degree. There’s really no catch – just benefits!

•  Engaged learning options that apply classroom theories to real-life situations •  Reserved seating in select Campion courses, and small class sizes To find out more about Campion — Canada’s Jesuit undergraduate college — visit www.campioncollege.ca.
