I’m writing to you today about your child’s college search. As a parent, I know the importance of finding a
college that not only fits your values, but also captures your child’s interest. As a dean, I’ve learned the most
important decision in this process is choosing a safe environment where your child will thrive in knowledge
and faith together.
No matter your criteria, deciding on where to attend college is a big decision and can feel a little
overwhelming. Life’s big events often are. Many times, important decisions require a leap of faith, but when
the right choice is made, I have found that peace of mind follows.
The college experience is meant to be life changing — to shape minds and open doors for a meaningful
career. At Regent University, we will help your child step into their future by equipping them with the
needed skills to reach their goals and live a life of significance.
Regent is one of the nation’s leading academic centers for Christian thought and action. We are a topranked,
accredited, affordable university committed to academic excellence, leadership training and spiritual
What a privilege we have as Christians, educators and parents to help our children — and future
generations — build a sure foundation. And there’s never been a better time to help prepare men and
women to excel. As society shouts conflicting messages on values, morality and purpose, we are seeing a
multitude of young adults hungry for honesty, truth and direction.

in the world. Our alumni include business executives, attorneys, healthcare specialists, educators, CEOs,
