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.

The Name's Blonde.

J. is one of the funniest people I know. I don't know what it is, but if you get he and I together we laugh and laugh and tell stupid jokes and we make fun of our differences. Early Wednesday morning I took him to the airport for his fantastical trip to NYC for the great ball drop.


C: Here, put your bags in the back seat.
J: Whatever. You just wanted to get out of the car to show off your boots and dress and whatever.
C: I did NOT! They are nice, though, aren't they?
J: You're straight today. What's that all about? I mean, you're straight every day. I mean, your hair is straight today. I mean... Geez, that was awkward. I'm going to stop talking now.
J: That blonde in Starbucks was cute. No ring. And a Coach bag.
C: I don't like Coach bags. Especially little ones. She had nice shoes though. I bet she's really high maintenance.
J: You're right. Besides, I'm leaving town today!
C: Just for the weekend, J. Sheesh!
J: Nope! I'm leaving town today!
C: You need a high maintenance woman like that. She would be good for you.
J: I know, I know. What does that mean, and more importantly, what does that say about me, you know, as a person?
C: Did you know surrogate mothers make $40,000 a year?
J. "....."
C: "......"
C: What?
J: I just get worried. Every time you say stuff like that to me, it makes me think you're about to pitch some idea you have.
C: No, no, noooo. I meant that having a high maintenance wife is still cheaper than hiring a surrogate to have your children. Sheesh!
J: Well, since we don't have to spend a lot of time hugging at the airport, here, look over this school project for my class.
J: At least let me get you a latte for the drive to the airport.
C: Ok. It's really not that complicated! I mean it really isn't! I don't see what the big deal is when I go out on dates. It's just a grande-decaf-peppermint-white-mocha-two pumps peppermint-two pumps white mocha-SOY- latte... did I say Soy?

The end.
