Our ROCK SOLID REGENT for the week is Elisha Beston.

Elisha is a junior musical theater major. She was nominated by Maria Diemer, Assistant Director of Global Affairs. She is originally from the Republic of Singapore but currently a citizen of Australia and has had the opportunity to travel across the globe. Maria Diemer shared that Elisha is an amazing student with outstanding grades. She not only excels academically, she is also an active member of the drama department. She is President of the Multicultural Club, Muslim Association and an officer in Regents Players.

With all that she does, she always has time for a smile and is willing to help others when asked. Elisha enjoys attending RU because it is “a small but mighty community that provides all of its students with a lot of opportunities” for growth. She loves the small class sizes and that all of her professors really care about her learning and progress in class. Also, Elisha enjoys the beauty of our campus, particularly the pretty fall leaves. After graduation from RU Elisha will be able to remain in America for one year. She hopes to find a job in the United States with a company that will sponsor her work visa and allow her to fulfill her dream of being on stage. Congratulations Elisha on being a ROCK SOLID REGENT!
