Most Beautiful Christian College and University Campuses in the World
Regent University Virginia Beach Virginia
Regent University s grand 70 acre main campus in Virginia Beach is full of greenery and even has a decorative fountain with stone animals fashioned by British company Haddonstone. The site s charming neo Georgian architecture also belies its young age, as this interdenominational school was only set up 1978: the brainchild of media mogul and Southern Baptist Pat Robertson, it started life as the Christian Broadcasting Network University. The school initially operated using leased classroom space, before its first building, an administration hub, was constructed in 1979. Renamed Regent University in 1990, it today educates a total of almost 6,000 undergraduates and postgraduates. Regent now has eight principal buildings on campus, including stately Robertson Hall plus its striking new chapel and divinity school. These last two were formally opened in 2013, with the chapel taking its cue from the beautiful London, England located church St. Martin in the Fields, which dates back to the 18th century.
