About the Enroute Class
Enroute is an inspiring, alternative pathway through Regis University's First-Year Experience. Simply put, Enroute helps new students become working members of a learning community like Regis by exploring how three basic aspects of human life—speaking, doing, and thinking—fruitfully relate to one another.
This program links the practices of Eloquentia Perfecta – writing and speaking with eloquence – with the skills and virtues required by an ideal of Jesuit education, that of being people in service of others.
Your work in En/Route also takes up the intellectual skills and virtues required for another ideal of Jesuit Education: ethical reflection. This is understood as a willingness and ability to subject your own opinion and the opinions of others about the good life to critical examination.
Service Learning In the Classroom
Service-Learning is not the same as volunteering. In a narrow sense, it is a requirement in the same way that coming to class, reading assigned books, and writing papers are requirements: you can, of course, "volunteer" not to do these things, but this is ultimately a choice not to do well in the class. In a larger sense, you simply cannot do the work of the academic classes without the rich fund of experience you will gain from working at one of our community partner sites.
