Judicial Board Applications are available in the Office of Student
Activities.  Your new Chief Justice, Terese Cabanting, is looking for
Associate Justices and Student Advocates.  It’s a great opportunity
to get involved, get some leadership experience and pad that resume.

Sign Ups for Dance Off and Powder Puff have started. For more
information about them check out www.facebook/RUConnected.regis .
There are significant changes to Powder Puff this year - including an
all-participant meeting, strict roster limitations, some friendly
local Denver Police Officers and the like. (The result of some
alcohol-related injuries from past years.)

Events and things to do around campus:
Wednesday
Hope you got the chance to check out the 1st Annual Regis People?s
Fair this afternoon.  It took place in front of the Student Center
and was sponsored by RUSGA senators.

Survivors of Suicide Day, 7-9pm in the Science Amp.
It will be part of Step It Up and it will be a video about people
coping with losing a loved one to suicide.  It would be a good
opportunity to learn to grieve/cope with the loss of a loved one to
suicide and get a chance to remember/honor him or her.

Since it’s Holy Week there is no Thrills, no Friday movie, or weekend
programming.  I hope that you’ll have time to spend some time with
your family, friends, friends family, etc. this weekend.

6pm to 8pm, Rock and Roll Bingo at Walkers Pub.  Join KRCX for a hot
new musical version of Bingo (which has its own cult following here
at Regis)!  Be the first to get five in a row and you could win a
KRCX T-Shirt or up to $200 worth of other prizes!

“Faster than a speeding bullet … more powerful than a locomotive
.. able to leap tall buildings in a single bound… yes, these are
some of Chuck Norris’s warm-up exercises.”

Happy Easter.

Dear Ranger



Well the Manning Watch continues into its fourth day.  As
entertaining as that is, there’s also a bunch of other things going
on right here on campus.

Announcements and such:

Are you ready to be the Mayor of Bracketville?  The Oracle of
Bracketology?  The DUKE of Hoopnation??  March Madness is indeed upon
us and you can win great prizes and bragging rights campus-wide.  If
you are interested in filling out a March Madness bracket for a
chance at Regis Glory go to http://ru.mayhem.cbssports.com/e and
create a CBS sports account.  It takes 2 minutes to get set up.  The
password for the RU March Madness Extravaganza is: Rangers. Then fill
out your bracket and submit it (you are limited to one bracket, so
make it count!!). After that, sit back, relax and pray that your
National Champion isn’t knocked out in the first round.  Prizes will
be awarded!!!!

Today is just like summer!  Good thing to, as Summer School
Registration begins March 19th in the Office of Summer Session
(LOY-12).  Students are required to have approval from their advisor
in order to register for Summer courses. Advisor approval can be
obtained via email; a copy of the email must be submitted with the
registration form. Additional information (including the Summer
Catalog and registration form) is available at www.regis.edu/summer.

Fall concert?
We’re looking for some feedback on an artist for a possible Fall
Concert.  The guys name is Ben Rector and you can check out his music
at: http://www.myspace.com/benrector.  The single “When A Heart
Breaks” is particularly noteworthy.  Concerts are tough at Regis
because we don’t have a ton of money to invest in one - so we end up
looking for up and coming artists before they “get found”.  Ben might
be one of those guys.  Let me know what you think.  (E-mail me with
your yea or ney.)

Events:

Tuesday, March 13th
2pm.  Baseball vs. CSU-Pueblo, Baseball Diamond.

8pm “What You Do Online Can (and probably will) Come Back to Haunt
You”.  C.L. Lindsay gives you the social media know how to keep your
online life online.  Know your rights and know how to protect
yourself when you log on.  Win a iPod docking station! Mountain View
Room.

Wednesday, March 14th

3:14pm. International Pi Day. Walkers Pub.  Join the math department
and break some pie with them.  Then join them (or watch the
freakishness) for a “Recite Pi from memory contest” followed by a
special Pi Day “Geeks Who Drink” contest and win fabulous prizes.

5:00pm to 6:00pm.  Meet the Industry Night: American Family
Insurance.
Loyola 11.  Sit and talk with representatives of a company that has
been around since 1927, sells multiple products in 19 states and has
$5.4 billion dollars in policy holder equity. (Okay - all I can do is
hear their jingle in my head for the rest of the afternoon.)

8pm.  OAP Film Series brings you DEFY! By the Danny Harf project.
X-Treme Wakeboarding.  Walkers Pub.

Thursday, March 15th
Thrills this week is Think Fast! It’s an incredibly fast paced game
show that tests your pop culture knowledge (music, movies and more).
It’s not just the contestants that win prize money - it’s also
audience members!  Brought to you by PAC.

 
Friday, March 16th 4pm to 7pm.
Kermes Celebration on The Quad
Come celebrate the Hispanic music festival Kermes. We will be having
a mariachi band as well as a DJ who will be playing a variety of
Hispanic music. Also we will be having food, raffles and games.

 
Sunday, March 18th 1pm.  Match Pitch
Women’s Lacrosse is at home this weekend vs. Lindenwood. It is a
“Build your Bank” game, so show up, have your name called, win $100 -
just for being a Raucous Ranger!

Next Week:
Wednesday, March 21st at 7pm.  Chapel.
Sonia Nazario, journalist and author of Enrique?s Journey!
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, Sonia Nazario will give the Women?s
History Month keynote address on “Women, Children, and Immigration”.
Ms. Nazario’s book Enrique’s Journey explores how families are
separated by immigration today. To research her book, Ms Nazario
traced the true journey of the young Honduran immigrant Enrique, as
he made the dangerous and illegal passage from Honduras to the United
States.  Enrique?s journey represents the trip thousands of immigrant
children make every year in search of their families who have left to
provide a better future.

And of course, the reason you scrolled all the way through this?
“Chuck Norris once climbed Mt. Everest in 15 minutes, 14 of which he
was building a snowman at the bottom.”

Take care of yourselves and each other this week.

In His Service and Yours,
Dave Law

Happy Mid-terms Rangers,

RUSGA (Student Government) Elections are being held right now.  Vote
on-line between now and Thursday night at 11:59pm.

Here’s the list of things we have to keep you sane during mid-terms:
Tuesday (Tonight)
Come to the Outrageous OutRegis! Improv show
Un-scripted, unproduced and improvisational performed by your own
Regis improv club this TONIGHT at 7pm in the Walker’s Pub!!! It
should be a lot of fun watching some of your fellow students act
foolishly. Come laugh at their misfortune!  If you don’t,
intergalactic hamsters will come and nibble all of your hair off
while you sleep!! (I’m not saying this is what happened to me,
but…)

Soul Food Night
BSA’s Soul Food Night is tonight! It starts at 6:30pm and will be
held in the Faculty Lounge, which is right next to the cafeteria in
the Student Center. We hope to see you there!

Wednesday
Highlander Release Party
The Highlander is back!
Come celebrate the re-release of Regis University’s award-winning
Highlander newspaper on Wednesday, Feb. 29 from 4:00 to 6:00 PM in
Walker’s Pub!
Meet the staff, hang out with friends, enjoy free food and beverages,
and pick up your first copy of the publication, which will not be
released to newsstands until after the event. Be there!

Devoutcast at the Hard Rock Cafe
Anthony Zarlengo (Tony Z)’s band, Devoutcast, will be playing the
Hard Rock Cafe on 16th Street in downtown Denver at 8pm. It is FREE
and ALL AGES. This is round 2 of the worldwide Hard Rock Rising
competition, where bands from all over the world are competing for
the ultimate prize of playing the Hard Rock Rising Festival in Hyde
Park, London.

Thursday
Thrills is Swing Dancing!!  10pm.  I’m thinking it’s in Walkers pub
(since there’s already a hardwood floor in there.)

Friday Movie
You’re on your own for a movie on Friday - see one with your friends,
see one on a flight home, pick one up at Red Box… You get the
picture.

Saturday
Men’s Rugby vs. DU.  1pm kick off on the West Field.

“Not even cockroaches will survive a Chuck Norris attack.”

Good luck with the rest of mid-terms.  Have a great spring break!
