It's hard for me to believe that it was four years ago that I was having to face one of the hardest things I could imagine at the time -- graduating from high school. I was very involved in my drama and music departments at my high school, and because of those two groups, I had a very tight circle of friends. These people saw me more than my own family did and in many ways, I did consider them family. We had gone through everything together and now we were facing separation, in many cases, by states and thousands of miles.
Now it's been almost four years and I never could have imagined the amazing people and experiences that I have encountered at Cedarvlle. I look back on the first few weeks of freshman year, meeting my new roommate, figuring out where all of my classes were and what time was best to get into Chucks. I'm now about to say goodbye to that same roommate, now one of my best friends as she starts her new chapter as missionary teacher overseas; my classes are all finished and I am preparing for graduation. Time sure does fly.
If you are a graduating senior this year and Cedarville is your next step, CONGRATS! You are about to embark on an adventure, for sure. New friends and experiences await you and I am so excited for you and for you to discover God in a deeper way. If you're not sure if Cedarville is where God has you, I pray that you will seek Him and I personally thank you for considering Cedarville. If you've applied and are ready to come, your next step is that $250 deposit. Trust me, you want to deposit early. The earlier you deposit, the better chance you have on your first choice of dorms and class schedule. It's refundable until May 1st!
Seriously, I am ready for my next step in life, but I am so thankful and honored to be able to call Cedarville my alma mater. I will be proud to walk across that stage on May 5th with my diploma. I'll be proud when I say I graduated with a degree from Cedarville University. And believe me, you'll be in my shoes before you know it!
