I am a veteran and military spouse, and because we have to relocate every few years, I had to find a University that offered a good online program. After a lot of research, I decided to give Regent University a try. I am now in my third semester with Regent and it has been very rewarding. The entire staff is wonderful! They are helpful, caring, and even check in with me via email or phone call just to make sure there isn't anything that I need. The classes are challenging and to date, every instructor has been amazing. Regent University has a great online program that is not just going to hand you a good grade. You will have to put the time and effort in, but the experience will be rewarding!

The counseling program has been frustrating at times. Contributing to the frustration, has been the professors. Some of have been scatterbrained, making the course somewhat unorganized and others have been the most encouraging, while still others have had a rude demeanor. It has been baffling at times of what to expect. On an assignment with a lot of criticism, I would have expected a lesser grade, but this although, showed no reflection. Sometimes, comments from professors come off as a mother scolding her children. It seems strange to be treated as a child when you have experience as a working adult, parent, and are continuing education to fulfill a dream to further your education. Although, I feel to have experienced growth academically, I had a hard time understanding some of the professors attitudes towards their students. Since, students work in groups in the counseling program, the comments betweens professors and students were continually shared throughout the semester.
So far, my experience with Regent University has been great! I recently received my acceptance letter, so I've only been able to interact with the admissions office and financial aid. Even though I've only been acquainted a short amount of time and with only a few departments, my first impression of them was wonderful! I cannot wait to begin classes and interact with everyone that I can on campus.
