Students apply to the university and once they receive acceptance, they declare a major of choice. The admissions office is great to work with and try to make the process as smooth as possible. Regent is a private university that strives to uphold its prestigious reputation and send out readied "Christian leaders to change the world." For those who live in Virginia, the Virginia Community College System partners with Regent in guaranteed admissions agreement when the student graduates from a Va community college with an associates degree and a minimum GPA. That is how I transferred in to Regent and it was not without its benefits!

I never hated school until I came to Regent. I'm not sure if I wasn't ready for the difficulty level and it is all my fault I hated the school part, or if it is also the fault of the university.

The value of professors and courses vary depending on your major. I had a major including a variety of classes from various majors, as my major wasn't entirely a program yet when I was at Regent.

In comparison to the classes I took when I got my associates degree at community college, I felt I learned little and hardly felt inspired to learn. Possibly this is due to my apathy of attending school for so long.

If you take the initiative, and do all the work and learn the material on your own, then the professors will most likely fill in the gaps and be able to answer your questions.

I was disappointed in the amount of classes I had to take online, as an on-campus student. Regent is lacking in an on-campus faculty for many majors.

If you like online classes, then Regent may be for you! Unless of course you're a Christian ministry major, theatre major, English major, or CTV major, then you have an abundance of on-campus professors.

The variety and quality of courses and classes really depends on each class, and each major.

Regent University is located in Virginia Beach, with the oceanfront about 25 minutes away, so the weather is sunny and warm during summer, fall, and spring seasons. Storms are occasional and can roll in fast, but the typical sunshine is beautiful and enjoyable! Since Va Beach is flat, the campus sometimes floods with much rainfall, so rain boots are a good investment. There are fields and many outdoor areas to play and hangout, so when the weather is nice many students and even community members can be found outside enjoying their day.
