“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

“I am so grateful for the past four years at Regent University. I have met so many amazing people and made friendships that will last a lifetime.”

Danika Green, B.A. in Cinema-Television, 2020

“"At Regent, I was surrounded by people who exemplified servant leadership. These examples often come back to me, and I believe it’s what my industry needs now more than ever."”

Breanna Molloy, B.A., 2012

“The main things that really stood out to me about Regent went beyond campus. It was the students and seeing the mission statement embodied in everything.”

Morganne Oliver, College of Arts & Sciences, 2021

“I want to be a biomedical engineer and use it for God's glory around the world. Not only do I want to help physically, but I would also want to help spiritually and emotionally. At Regent, I grew so much mentally, spiritually and emotionally in a way I want to share with others.”

Sheila Atieno, B.S. in Biophysical Sciences, 2021 Master’s Student in Biomedical Engineering, New York University
