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
Director of Student Activities
