History

Regis College was founded in 1927 by the Congregation of the Sisters of St. Joseph when they purchased the 130 acre (53 ha) suburban campus from Fannie Edson Demmon Morrison. The college took its name from the Reverend Mother Mary Regis Casserly, who established the Sisters of St. Joseph in Boston in 1873.[3]

Academics

The college grants Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees, as well as Certificates and a Doctorate in nursing practice. It has cross-registration agreements with Babson, Bentley, and Boston College as well as a cooperative degree program with Worcester Polytechnic Institute. Regis is also affiliated with the Sisters of Saint Joseph College Consortium, Regent's College in London, University College Cork in Ireland, and Kyoto Notre Dame University in Kyoto, Japan for study abroad, as well as American University’s Washington Semester program.

Student life

Regis College has 1,511 students, 934 of whom are undergraduates.[4] There are four residence halls: Angela Hall, Maria Hall, Domitilla Hall, and College Hall. On-campus housing is guaranteed by Regis for all students. Alumnae Hall houses the main dining hall, the Commuters’ Lounge, Tower Tavern, WRGS (the Regis College radio station), the bookstore, the post office, several lounge areas for meetings, lectures, and events. The Fine Arts Center houses the Eleanor Welch Casey Theatre and the Carney Art Gallery.
