“Making the switch from community college to Regent was a flawless process and the best decision ever. I’m so proud I have ‘Regent graduate’ connected to my story.”

Hanna Bishop, B.A., 2015 Christian Ministry

“At Regent, I loved the integration of Christian values that were wrapped tightly in a strong academic degree. I felt completely academically prepared to go out and help people, but I also had that very foundational core belief system that was strengthened unbelievably.”
