Regent University

At Regent University, you will get an education with Christian
foundations that is unique to this school. I love this school; frankly because I can find my identity in Christ and express it freely and comfortably. Regent's motto is founded on Christian leadership that changes the world; and I believe that I can definitely be an advocate in the world because of the ideals taught at Regent University.

Government Degree

I am a government major and organizational leadership and management minor. I plan on attending law school; and being able to have a Christian foundation truly inspires me and helps me in my future career in politics. Regent provides you with an awareness of other ideologies and teaches you how to use that knowledge in order to minister towards others in a modern society.

As the fall rolls on...

Much has occurred since the last time I posted in July. I moved back on campus, I am volunteering in Alpha Phi Omega Service Fraternity while trying to get ready for the LSAT in October (only two weeks away!). I am planning on attending Regent University but UVA or W&M would be nice too. There are some things I learned in the past few weeks about applying to law school:

1. Make sure you trim down your list of law schools you want to apply to (each school you apply to can see the other schools you are applying to, schools want to feel "special" :P).
2. Make sure you study for the lsat. I like to use kaplain.
3. The Law school process is expensive. I have already paid $307.00 and I haven't even paid the application fees yet.
4. Choose a law school in a state in which you could live in for a long time. Chances are that you will make all your connections while in law school and pass the bar in the same state.
5. Be realistic. If you are getting low scores on your pre-tests and unsure if you want to practice law and/or become a politician, don't get the degree. No one wants to waste $39,000 a year. Go to grad school.

In the middle of summer.

It is June, boy how times flies. Well, nothing much has been going on with me this summer. I have been doing my internship with JAG and getting ready for the National Conservative Student Conference in D.C. I recently went to Kentucky to visit a friend and it was nice being surrounded by nature. I went hiking and went to a couple of national parks. I also went contra dancing for the first time. It is much like line/square dancing but flashier. I love contra dancing now. A good time was had.

I am actually ready to go back to the Regent community. It is not very interesting in Ohio but at least I get to be around family. The biggest thing I am looking forward to in the fall is move in time at the commons and freshman orientation. Though it is hectic around that time, Regent is filled with excitement as new students come to Regent University and returning students enjoy their time being back. I am also excited to go back at work to CBN as a prayer counselor. The employees feel more like a family. I do miss them.

Well that's all I got!

Work, Work, Work!!

So I started my first day of work this week at the Judge Advocate General (JAG) office at Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio for my summer internship. For those who have never seen the show, JAG is a legal office that handles all legal matters of military soldiers from court marshals, to wills, notaries, and traffic tickets. It is a great atmosphere (laid back yet focused) and I will actually get to create legal documents and work with clients.

For those who are interested in working for the government through an internship you should remember to: 1.) start the application process early 2.) as a student you have a stronger chance of getting into a government facility 3.) and even though you may not get paid, it is a great advantage on your resume and it gives you needed experience.

To get my internship I called the desired work location, asked if there was anything I had to do in order to work in their office, and went through their application process (which took a few weeks to prepare and 3 months to approve) and I began working with JAG. Another option is going through a program that earns you college credit. Regent offers The Washington Center internship program which I was one of the first to do last summer in D.C. They also offer study abroad options for credit.

In other news, I recently received a Regent scholarship to go to the National Conservative Student Conference in Washington, D.C. It is a conference that lasts the first week of August that includes guest speakers and workshops on how to implement conservative ideals in today's society. Don't worry Regent community, I will bring my laptop on this trip to keep you updated!

Summer Time

It is summer time once again and what am I doing this summer in terms of a job? Well before I state my plans I will have to give you some background information. Last summer I was one of the first students from Regent University to go to D.C. under The Washington Center program and I had a great experience there. Now, I am slowing down [a lot] and chose to go home and stay with my family for the summer. I am going to work for the JAG office at Wright Patterson Air Force Base since I want to be an attorney in the near future.

Any eventful plans for the summer? Well, besides my birthday being this weekend, I am going to practice the guitar in order to play at the Regent's Got Talent show and get prepared for Alpha Phi Omega Service Fraternity events. I am also getting a jump start on law school applications.

So, what's going on at Regent? In the summer time it is pretty quiet, but with summer orientations, Toastmasters, International Justice Mission events, Government Camp, and the National Conservative Christian Conference, I am pretty sure that there is a lot to do for those who plan on being in Virginia Beach this summer [Not to mention the beach is nearby!]
