Introducing: Matt Norton

Matt Norton '17Q. What is special to you about Regis?

To me, the special thing about Regis is the size of the school and the classes. When I was making my decision to come to Regis, class size and campus life were really important to me. To be able to go to a school where I know people in my major, out of my major, and to know the administrators––that was really special to me.

Q. How has Regis set you up for success after you graduate?

Regis has set me up for success by giving me the knowledge and the skills to be professional in the workplace. Some of these skills include how to do an interview and prepare a resume.

I’m going to begin the Regulatory and Clinical Research Management masters program in the fall, as well. I’ll be able to work full-time, at HealthDrive in Wellesley, MA, and complete coursework in the next 1-2 years.

Q. How has the Regis mission/core values of the Sisters of St. Joseph impacted your life?

The mission and values of Regis have shaped me into the man I am today.

When you walk through campus, people hold doors for you. If you sneeze in class, people will say “God bless you.” Even if those are small day-to-day things, it says a lot about the character of the students, faculty, and staff. It’s a great place to be.

Q. What is your favorite spot on campus and why?

My favorite spot on campus is the outdoor athletics facility. It’s an unbelievable complex, especially being on the track and field and the cross-country teams. To have the opportunity to run on a track like that for four years has been awesome.

A lot of my former high school teammates from have said their college facilities are not nearly as great as ours. Going to practice every day at a complex like that has been a wonderful opportunity.

Q. Can you offer a piece of advice to an incoming Regis student?

My advice to an incoming student would be to get involved and to put yourself in situations you normally wouldn’t. Maybe you’ll join a club or sport that you didn’t expect to, and be part of it for all four years.

I put myself in situations I wasn’t totally comfortable with and tried new things. I think that’s the one thing I’d say: experience everything you can before you cross the stage at graduation.
