Why Regent University?

Regent University offered a unique perspective in undergraduate studies. Christ-centered leadership and biblically centered classes develop students professionally and personally. The campus is beautiful, and I soon found that my professors and my fellow students exuded enthusiasm and dedication to the Lord and their educational pursuits. Classmates prayed with me and for me; studying became a group effort towards excellence and not just another homework assignment.

Why Online Learning?

I was 21 when I started the online learning program at Regent University. I had the opportunity to dual-enroll in a local college while in high school, so my associates degree was partially complete when I graduated in 2002. I hit the ground running by working full time after graduating from high school, attending night classes to finish my associates degree. I guess I got used to the schedule, and when it came time to find a university to transfer to, I knew I'd want a flexible format that would allow me to continue in my professional endeavors.

Why A Business Degree?

My degree is in Organizational Leadership and Management. I chose this concentration because of the unique mix of business strategy and leadership development. In choosing a degree program I wanted one that would emphasize the "people" part of organizations and their strategic development. Some degree programs focus primarily on the financial and strategic side of business development, but Regent stressed the importance of the organization's people and the effectiveness of biblical leadership.

Dear Readers.

This letter is to inform you that Chelsea's intense 3-class semester has ended this evening. Following 8 weeks of intense study in the areas of theology, human resources, management, and the development of organizations, she is inclined to take it easy for a few days until the next semester starts.

The amount of work needed to complete these classes with excellence required an ungodly amount of coffee, Red Bulls, and actions such as peanut butter sandwiches at 2 in the morning. Moreover, such academic achievement required missed lunch breaks, missed nights out with the girls, bleary eyed did-I-sleep-in-my-contacts-again? mornings, and some emotional outbursts that sounded something like "give me something with the word "chocolate" in it."

Chelsea has been a very good student, a very dedicated reader, thinker, writer, PowerPoint Maven, and scholar. But for the next few days, she wants to enjoy her new freedom and even sit around and have a latte in her underwear, if she wants to. (At home, of course).

Please don't expect anything very noteworthy from her for at least five (5) days. Of course, she could surprise us all and have a burst of creativity, posting it herewith or on another site such as myspace.com, facebook.com, regentchelsea.blogspot.com, or this particular blog.
