May 1, 2014 was set aside as a National Day of Prayer. Many people throughout the country took time out to specifically pray for numerous personal, social, spiritual, and political issues on a local, regional, and global level. This day of prayer came right at the close of another scholastic year, and just two days before many of my fellow students received their various and well-earned degrees of higher learning. While many in our nation may question the merits of an actual day being set aside for prayer, I for one can fully appreciate it, and have come to value it greatly; both as a believer in Christ, and as a student living on campus here at Regent University.

Pre-trip: I came to the Hollywood Experience having already made the decision and steps to move to L.A. in a few months. What I was hoping to gain on this trip were some tools and advice for next steps to take as far as getting started in the industry and settled.
Saturday, May 10 – We arrived in L.A.! I feel very welcomed by the amazing folks at our apartment complex. Also, I’m learning how to pronounce “La Brea.” Read more
Coming out of grad season, college students everywhere are both reflecting and looking ahead. There are many lasts and many firsts to be had as the year transitions into summer and lives are moving and shaking in between.
This was my first semester as a Regent University student. I didn’t know that many people, but I made an effort to be involved in more than just classes. UnChapel, the student led Thursday night Chapel service, was a great opportunity for me to grow spiritually and meet other students. Although I have not yet found a particular niche within the student body, UnChapel gave me the opportunity to see what fruit four years of undergrad could bear. Read more
I can’t believe it’s been a year since I went on Regent’s first Hollywood Experience. With all that’s happened since then, some days it feels like another lifetime. But seeing photos and hearing stories from this year’s crop of students studying in Los Angeles, it feels like only yesterday I was walking those Miracle Mile streets, sitting in that L.A. Film Studies Center class, and dreaming those big Hollywood dreams.
This year, several students are sending us posts from the trenches at the 2014 Hollywood Experience. Our first blogger is SCA alumna Alicia LeBlanc (’11), MFA in Script & Screenwriting. Read more
May. That lovely month where college students all across the nation make their way home.

For the past two years, I have made the trek from Regent University all the way back to my hometown of Valdez, Alaska, for the summer break. My excitement is focused on seeing my family again, so the journey goes by fairly quickly now. Read more
