Student Testimonials

Brett, Army National Guard

College of Arts & Sciences

I was already attending Regent University when I decided to join the National Guard and Army ROTC. Trying to balance the demands of school, ROTC and National Guard was hard work, but Regent had wonderful staff that accommodated any need a studying soldier might have. I received all the help and resources I needed from the university's military director in a timely, professional manner and promptly started training with ROTC. At first, I thought the work load was too difficult to handle. Yet, isn't that what it feels like when growing? Therefore, I found these challenges to be positive.

While taking classes, I sharpened myself as a future leader and built confidence and a networking base along the way. My tuition, housing and books? No matter. The benefits of being in ROTC and the National Guard paid for it all! The Lord provided through Regent and many other ways, and for that I cannot thank Him enough.

As a future second lieutenant with a B.A. in Cinema-Television under my belt, I am confident about the future. Looking back, I have undoubtedly changed for the better because of my decision to attend Regent University and its ROTC program. I would recommend it to anyone who has decided to attend school while training to become an officer. I have seen other schools and Army ROTC programs, and there is no doubt that Regent's is in the cream of the crop. It provided everything one would need for excellent academics, spiritual growth, social networking, and financial assistance. I cannot imagine graduating from anywhere else but Regent University.
