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.

Peel-eased to Meet You!

Look what greeted me this morning on my way into work!
A little grapefruit family, enjoying our bench!
You have the Daddy grapefruit, the Mommy grapefruit, the visiting Sister-in-college grapefruit (home for the holidays) and little quadruplet grapefruits. (I found out later they were key limes). How cozy, the whole family sitting there, shootin-the- squeeze together! (sorry- I had to say it).

Or maybe it's a Grandma is going to babysit so that Mom and Dad can go have a romantic dinner out and do some Christmas shopping- It's probably hard to get away with 4 kids!

And then I started thinking that maybe it wasn't that at all. Maybe it's Grandma and Grandpa grapefruit, and it's their son's custody weekend with the key limes (whoo hoo!).

Or maybe it's Mommy grapefruit, Daddy grapefruit, and daddy's Special Friend grapefruit and they're about to have a talk with about "blended families." (Sorry, sorry).

And then I said, "Chelsea, you are standing here, making up stories about fruit sitting on a bench."

You may think I'm silly, but I don't really rind. (Sorry, sorry...)
