					Stan Hall & George Reinert, RC ’39
When Stan Hall and George Reinert graduated from Regis College, World War II was beginning in Europe, the Great Depression still lingered, Franklin Delano Roosevelt served as President of the United States, and Batman made his first appearance in a comic book. For four years, the two friends lived next door to one another in the Pink Palace, played football and basketball together, waited tables in the mess hall on campus and enjoyed frequent gatherings at Dick’s Tavern on Lowell Boulevard. Together, they attended classes taught by a primarily Jesuit faculty, attended dances with the ladies from Loretto Heights College, and exchanged an infinite number of practical jokes. The stories of these two men are interlaced through more than seven decades of Regis history – as much a part of Regis as Regis is a part of them. “I have come to realize the priceless and timeless lessons the Jesuits instill in each of their students,” says Stan. “It isn’t until later in life that you come to fully appreciate the well rounded lessons they impart.” Seventy years after graduating, they still celebrate the deep appreciation they have for the school that first brought them together and the special place their Jesuit education holds in their lives. “A Jesuit education teaches you more than how to come out of college and make a living,” says George. “You learn how to live.”
