Catch up time!
Recently I got the opportunity to go to Nicaragua with a program called Global Medical Brigades. I shadowed doctors, physical therapists, dentists, assisted a pharmacist and helped over 1000 people with their medical needs. It was a beautiful experience getting to witness another very different culture first hand, as well as be in a health care environment.
I loved every minute of it, even though I did pass out from a tooth extraction, but let me tell you it was gruesome and I was a bit dehydrated (whoops).
I currently am in my sophomore year here at Regis and am taking Ecology & the lab, Chemistry & the lab, and philosophy. These are all seeming to be quite challenging (besides philosophy), but I am devoted to graduating from Regis and I will make it happen!
This year is already

1st tip, don’t get professor Melvin.
2nd tip, actually study, don’t just memorize! That is exactly what I did and was so used to, and because of that I couldn’t answer the more thought out questions. Read the book, and take notes on the book and then retake the notes before the test and then read them and highlight areas you need more help with. Then take them to the learning center and get a bio tutor (: or talk with the TA
But that’s if you really don’t get it! Start out by reading and taking notes and going to the TA
Also ask questions! The teachers will answer and they’re awesome!
Don’t be stressed out, I wrote those when I was very stressed and upset and looking back I probably could have done more for certain parts. With Melvin however I just couldn’t understand anything she was teaching and it’s impossible to really learn something with just the book!
You’ll do great and if you have any questions feel free to message me on here or add me on Facebook (Alyssa Wulfert)
Welcome to Regis! You’ll love it. Aug 21

It’s hard to find the perfect niche and friendships that will last. Even though I may not have a “bestfriend” that’s not what life and college is about! I’m learning to surround myself with good people and just have fun and to stop worrying.
Don’t feel lonely or sad inside, just realize how many people you have in your life who make you feel good when you’re around them and thrive off of that!
Some day the right people will walk into your life and make you feel like you belong to something (: Aug 20

I went to Nicaragua with Regis Global Medical Brigades and we went to provide healthcare to communities who received only a dollar salary a day per family. We had doctors, nurses, a pharmacist, gynecologist and dentist who volunteered to see these people. The main problem is the lack of access to medication, so the people needed a lot of ibuprofen and chronic medications that we have access to everyday here in the US.
It was an incredible experience and I got to shadow all the doctors and work one on one with the patients. Aug 16
Anonymous said: I am going to be a freshman at Regis this year and one thing I'm worried about is that I am not a religious person at all. I know, Regis is a Jesuit institution, why would I choose to go there? I just loved the atmosphere when I visited and the people were really nice. But, I'd be lying if I said I wasn't nervous about the religion aspect. I respect all religions and those who don't have one, like myself. Should I be worried about that? Will I meet people who may not be religious like me?
Honestly religion is one of the more minor aspects of Regis. It’s more all about the Jesuit ways, such as caring for the whole person. I am not catholic and I haven’t had one single problem. The people who are religious just go to the church on Sundays but you don’t see them forcing their ways upon anyone (: some of my friends there aren’t religious and they have told me it hasn’t effected them. I wouldn’t worry about it! College is about education and the experience, the religious aspect is personal depending upon the individual.
Anonymous said: Tips on finding a good roommate and tips on getting along with your roommate
I wish I could help out with this but there is no real answer. I didn’t get to pick my roommate but I did get to fill out a survey and they “matched” me with someone and that was hell. Luckily she left the school after the first semester and I got lucky to be paired with a girl I didn’t know who also needed a new roommate.
The only thing you can do is make sure you have similar sleep and class schedules and make sure you make a scheduled chore chart type thing, like this week I’ll take out the trash next time you can yada yada. That will help with tension…sorry I can’t help too much with this my first roommate was a horrible roommate and all I could do was be patient and calm! Jul 10
