For anyone interested in developing the analytical skills required to make sense of complicated ideas, I encourage you to give Regent's Honors College a look. The relationships, skills and knowledge you'll gain through the discussion-based classes, and engaging assignments will benefit you in the years to come.

When I think about Regent, I think about the wonderful people I met here that have supported and loved me with the love of Christ; they helped me make college a home away from my home in Guatemala.

Nurse

With 30+ years of nursing experience, I saw myself as a leader, but I felt this nudging from God to go back to school. I’ve discovered my new calling: to serve as a life coach.

It is neat to see people who care about excellence but aren’t haughty about it. They approach it with humility in their academics, their spiritual lives, and each other.

What Regent has is as close as you can get to the biblical definition of family that can be achieved at the university level...None of that would have been possible without this scholarship which would not have been possible without donors like you.
Justin Garcia

Getting a Big Idea/Dreamworks internship and working on VeggieTales in the House was a dream come true. Ultimately I want to write and direct stories, regardless of what form they take. Storytelling is what I love, and I'm so grateful Regent has helped me develop that passion.

Regent offered me ... a stepping stone towards academics, towards my future as a Christian leader to change the world, but perhaps more importantly, it gave me a community.
Kristin Smith

My friends and I feel like Regent chose us. It was clear that we were meant to be here, and we're better for it. I tell others, 'If you're looking for something out of the ordinary, something authentic, that gives evidence to God, I suggest Regent University.' Our community and the pursuit of God are unparalleled.
