Student Council

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 and peer counselling, promotes student interests, coordinates student activities and provides students with opportunities for participation in communal prayer.

The Student Council Members for 2015-2016 are: Kevin Kelly, S.J. (Co-President); Lucelle Schmitz (Co-President); Wilma Scherloski (Dean of Students); Brian Bajzek, Young-Sook Kim, Christopher Taucar, and Jason Vaz.

 

FULFILLING OUR MISSION

Hospitality Committee

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.

Annual Culturefest Potluck Dinner & Entertainment - Friday, 22 January 2016

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!

International Students Assistance

The Regis College students come from at least 33 different countries and sometimes require specialized information and support. The International Student Representative on Regis College Student Council coordinates informal opportunities for fellow international students to exchange information and strategies to adapt to Canadian society and a new academic environment throughout the academic year. To contact the International Student Representative, email regisdean.students@utoronto.ca or call 416-922-5474 x266.

In addition to an annual orientation to the library, critical reading and academic writing for all incoming students, Regis College offers a specialized Orientation for International Students on Monday, September 21, 2015 from 4 to 5 pm in the student lounge. We have invited Aziz El Mejdouby, International Student Immigration Advisor, Centre for International Experience, University of Toronto to this session. Learn about the things you need to know about studing and living in Canada.

Prayer Gatherings

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 academic year, every Thursday 12:30pm-1pm all are invited to an Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament in the St. Joseph's Chapel. 

Our Monthly Meetings

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.
