Choosing Regent University's online programs was one of the best decisions I've ever made! Initially, I was afraid that being an online student would make me feel disconnected to the school's student life and opportunities. However, Regent has made the experience refreshing, and I have made new friends along the way.

My academic experience at Regent University has been well-rounded, and has equipped me with the foundational tools needed to become a real-world leader in today's workforce. The professors were [mostly] helpful, and I developed a deeper understanding of Christian life and its positive effects throughout today's society. The school continues to increase its offered degree programs, which has prompted me to consider graduate school.

It would be great to see more diversity in the school's leadership and in its dynamic marketing.
My experience at Regent University was very stressful as well as the environment. This is a religious university so the campus is very small and not everyone is who they claim to be. Speaking with academic advisors was hectic and stressful as well. Every time I spoke with an academic advisor I would be told something drastically different about my class schedule or financial situation than the last. Neither staff or advisors were very helpful whenever I had an issue I needed resolved. Nonetheless, I have met some very lovely students who showed me patience, kindness, grace and the true meaning of Christianity. I do not recommend going to Regent unless you want to be at a school that focuses predominantly on Christian studies. I learned a lot in my biblical study classes (because they were required) and it was very enlightening and requires critical thinking. I am grateful for the experience because I believe it made me the strong person I am today.
