10 Things I learned during my first semester at Regent

10 Things I learned during my first semester at Regent

As an incoming freshman at Regent, I had little idea of what to expect.  I grew up in a small town, went to the same church, and — as a homeschooled student — basically had the same friends from kindergarten onwards.  Now, as the end of the semester glimmers on the horizon, I can look back and see how different the first few months of school were from what I imagined. Here are ten ways... »

3 Outstanding pizza places near Regent’s campus

3 Outstanding pizza places near Regent’s campus

We all have those nights — the kind where you are too tired to cook or have too many people to cook for. Maybe you and your friends want to go out, but Applebee’s and IHOP have lost their appeal.  Your mind goes to pizza, and the more you think about it, the better it sounds. Now, we all know Little Caesar’s is the cheapest and closest to campus, but maybe you’d like to try something new.  T... »

One Regent student’s idea could totally change how we do laundry

One Regent student’s idea could totally change how we do laundry

As college students, we all know what it’s like to feel pressed for time.  When every minute could make the difference between reaching that midnight deadline and a grade deduction, a small task like doing laundry can become a major inconvenience.  Even worse, those of us living in the Regent Commons are all too familiar with hauling our clothes to the laundry room only to find there are no machin... »

College problems: A different kind of Hunger Games

College problems: A different kind of Hunger Games

In the first weeks after coming back to school, it can be difficult to adjust. For some, this might manifest itself in struggling to keep up with a class schedule after a summer of sleeping in. For others it might mean trying to find a job or to make new friends in lieu of all those who have graduated. But for people like me, the hardest thing to adjust to is the food, either in procuring it or ma... »

Sink, swim or float: Regent’s fifth annual Regatta draws fierce competition

Sink, swim or float: Regent’s fifth annual Regatta draws fierce competition

Every year, the Regent community comes together to behold a battle of epic proportions in the name of honor, glory and free food.  This battle is known as the Regent Regatta, a homemade boat race held in the pond outside the Commons.  Those who make it under the bridge first receive a $100 gift card to the Cheesecake Factory, and everyone involved has the rare opportunity to immerse themselves the... »

The Daily Runner interviews Daniel Garza of the LIBRE Initiative

As the son of migrant farm workers from northern Mexico, Daniel Garza knows firsthand what the American dream can do for a person.  This is especially true in his own life — though Garza dropped out of high school, he was later able to obtain his GED and work his way into the world of politics.  He eventually came to work in the White House during the presidency George W. Bush, advocating fo... »

Regent community accepts the ice bucket challenge, to glorious results

Regent community accepts the ice bucket challenge, to glorious results

Yesterday at Chapel, Dean Brauch of Regent’s Law School unveiled a video of himself taking the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.  In the video, he challenged all Regent students, faculty and staff to follow in his footsteps. While the unofficial rules of the Ice Bucket Challenge are dubious (can you really challenge an entire group?  Is that allowed?), the Regent community nevertheless accepted.  To... »

The best beaches in Virginia Beach

We’re entering into the last leg of the summer season as the month of August begins. The retail stores are already busting out their “Back 2 School” marketing campaigns. While all the clever marketing and the promise of fresh backpacks, notebooks, and autumn wardrobes may excite high school students, we jaded college students are digging in our heels and clinging to every last drop of summer we ca... »

TJ Ting: The guy behind #HumansofRU

If you’re a student at Regent and you have an Instagram account, you have probably heard of Humans of RU. You may have even been featured in it. The sometimes funny, other times deep captions add amusement and a personal Regent touch to your otherwise-selfie-filled Instagram newsfeed. As is common with most social phenomena at Regent, this is the type of quaint and unique thing that only hap... »
