The Regis College Student Council is committed to carrying out the mission of the College, of becoming a community that witnesses to the greater glory of God. To fulfill our commitment to an integrated spirituality, a faith that does justice, critical dialogue and academic excellence, the Student Council provides representative student government that fosters communication, promotes student interests, coordinates student activities and provides students with opportunities for participation in communal prayer.
The Student Council Members for 2011-2012 are: Hector Acero-Ferrer (President); Maureen Baldwin; Sonal Castelino; Greg Kennedy, S.J.; Daniel Leckman, S.J.; Anne Quinn-Wallace; Paul Robson, S.J.; Catherine Wright; Wilma Scherloski (Dean of Students)
No one is a stranger for long at Regis College. Students, faculty and staff are dedicated to making our college a real community. The Wednesday Liturgy at 1:30 pm followed by a light buffet lunch is the spiritual and social engine of the week. To make this happen, Ministers of Hospitality greet worshippers, bake or purchase food, set it out and clean up. If you would like to help with this rewarding ministry, please see Wilma Scherloski.
This is the great extravaganza of Regis College - a night of abundant and delicious multi-cultural foods and exciting entertainment. Students, faculty, staff, friends and families proudly present one of their national dishes and everyone then celebrates the final amazing array of appetisers, entrees and desserts. After dinner, the entertainment program of music and other surprising talents is unveiled. It is an event that cannot be missed!

The Regis College students come from at least 33 different countries, including Canada. The Student Council recognizes that our International Students have special needs, and consequently, our International Student Representative is available to answer their questions.
Prayer is the anchor that grounds all our work as Student Council. While all our meetings start and end with prayer, the fulcrum of the Regis College community is the weekly celebration of the Eucharist (Wednesdays, 1:30pm, St. Joseph's Chapel) to which all Student Council members are strongly encouraged to participate in. In addition, liturgies are celebrated Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays at 1:10pm in the St. Marie Chapel. Throughout the 2011-2012 academic year, every Thursday 12:30pm-1pm all are invited to an Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament in the St. Joseph's Chapel.
Student Council meetings are held three times each semester. They provide Regis students with an opportunity for open discussion on issues important to them and a way to become involved in activities sponsored by the College. The Council provides a liaison between the student body and the faculty. All students are welcome to attend meetings and are encouraged to volunteer to assist in the planning and execution of social and academic functions.
