“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

“As part of its overt and clear commitment to raise up Christian leaders to change the world, Regent provides an environment that encourages its students to abide in Christ; but it will also take your active commitment to abide in Christ for your legal calling to truly be fulfilled in your life.”

Bobby Maddox, J.D., 2001

“All the time, when people hear I am studying public administration, they say, ‘Oh, we need more Christian leaders in government!’ It’s a perfect fit for Regent’s mission. And if you’re a Christian, you have something anchoring you to the decisions you make that affect an entire country.”

Sonya Mills, MPA, 2018 Human Resources Administrative Specialist, U.S. Department of Justice, Hawaii
