The First Pride Program invites incoming first-generation students, those are the first in their family to obtain a college education in the United States, to arrive to campus early to obtain early access to valuable resources on campus in order to enhance their transition and sense of belonging at Regis College.

Our First Pride Program provides incoming students the opportunity to engage in academic preparedness workshops with faculty, staff, student leaders, and some of their fellow classmates. The schedule will include events on and off campus to allow new students ample access campus resources to support their new home away from home.

Having the opportunity to move in a few days earlier made such a difference in helping my transition from high school to college run smoothly.

This program allowed me the opportunity to get comfortable in my residence hall before the bustle of the general move-in, but more importantly I was able to meet fellow classmates and professors and attend various events. This provided me with the camaraderie that I really needed, as this was my first time away from home.
