“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.”

Elisa Sosa, B.A. in Animation, 2019 Photographer

“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.”

Justin Garcia, B.A., 2014 Animator

“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

“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.”

Kristin Smith, B.A. in History, 2020 Next Generation Coordinator, Strong Tower Church

“Regent prepared me for steps I needed to take to start a business, as well as to lead one.”

Hunter Davis, MBA - International Business, 2019; J.D., 2013; B.A. in Government - American Government & Politics, 2010 Co-Owner, Duck Donuts; Director, The American Environment Foundation
