Snow-sational! Bomb Cyclone Creates Regent Winter Wonderland

Brace yourselves, winter is here.

On Thursday, January 4, Regent University, along with the greater Hampton Roads area, was hit with a bomb cyclone – a winter storm that brought at least 11 inches of snowfall to the area.

Watch the drone video below.


While no official blizzard records were broken according to National Weather Service meteorologists, it remains “No. 12 for all-time events” according to this Virginian-Pilot article.

And on Regent’s Virginia Beach, Virginia campus, snow fell in sheets and reminded everyone why it was named Top 10 Most beautiful Christian Colleges and Universities in the South.

Check out these photos from Regent’s own winter wonderland from photographers Gwenyth Gaba and Eric Lusher.
