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.

A new semester

I've had a pretty slow weekend, but that is good because classes start this week. I am taking Old Testament Studies and Senior Culminating Experience. Goodness- did someone say SENIOR? Yes, that's me! I'm so excited to be graduating, but a little sad because my degree will be finished. I got a taste of graduation this week, since I was on break, and I didn't really know what to do with all my free time. I actually missed having studying and discussion board posts to work on. This is because they stretch me academically and spiritually, and it gives me an excuse to hang out at the local Starbucks for hours studying and meeting fellow coffee drinkers/students/friends/new friends.

My time at Regent has been quite a learning experience. I feel that, academically, I received a very challenging and thought-provoking education, as well as a spiritually rich environment that encouraged me to seek out God and His perfect will.
