“Regent prepared me to step into the unknown with confidence and skill.”

Jonathan Holman, B.S. in Business, 2019 Director of Business Intelligence, Hampton Roads Economic Development Alliance

“My college career has been anything but ordinary. But after five years, two schools, two majors, a minor, and a global pandemic, I can finally say that I am a Regent graduate!”

Stephanie Clark, B.S. in Paralegal Studies, 2020

“Honors College classes are much more focused on discussion and working with others to solve a problem. My experience was different from school: Instead of reading other peoples' data and writing a report on it, you're forming your own data and then reporting that.”

Allison Hodgkins, College of Arts & Sciences, 2022

“Regent's online, eight-week programs will help you take responsibility and have a way to be self-taught. You'll not only have that initiative, but you'll be able to interact with your professors online. It was really good for me.”

Taniki Richard, B.S. Business Leadership, 2016 Former U.S. Marine Corps

“At Regent, mentors are readily available if students seek them out. They're just waiting for you to take the initiative and ask for support. The blessings are beyond anything you could imagine.”

Ben Kay, B.A., 2013 Biblical & Theological Studies
