“I truly believe God called me to be a journalist. Perhaps one of the most important lessons that I learned from Regent is to tell stories as best as I can through the lens of God. ”

Ashley Smith, M.A. in Journalism, 2013 Daybreak Anchor and Traffic/News Reporter, 13News Now (WVEC)

“Things anxiety and depression told me I couldn’t do: be independent, live by myself, be completely happy, graduate college (magna cum laude!). Things I’ve done: All of the above.”

Ansley Michaela Hamby, B.A. in Communication Studies, 2020

“I took a trip to the campus and was blown away by the beauty of the school. What actually won me over to finally pursue an advanced degree was the professional resources offered by the School of Communication & the Arts, as well as the curriculum.”

Jonathan Santiago, M.A., 2012 Digital Media

“When it comes to higher education, it’s about giving students every opportunity to succeed and making sure they have the tools to walk out God’s calling. I've been given so much opportunity and a fantastic education at Regent; if that doesn't set me up to help someone else, what will? ”

Stephanie Iaquinto, Ph. D., 1996 Communications

“At Regent, we were encouraged to tie our studies into who we are as Christians and to incorporate that extra layer. We learned to do all things with excellence — and that should never be compromised.”

Debbie Holloway, B.A. in English, 2012 English
