was disaffiliated by the Church and fully ceded to the University in 1934; in
1961 it attained degree-granting status as the Regina Campus of the University
of Saskatchewan. It became an autonomous university in 1974. The University of
Regina has an enrollment of over 15,000 full and part-time students. The
university's student newspaper, The Carillon, is a member of CUP.
