Cedarville, Ohio—Where would "CSI" be without science? Or "Numbers" without math? These are a few modern-day examples of why these two areas of study remain a fascinating and, in reality, indispensable part of society. Cedarville University's Science and Math Day, November 17, offers high school students the opportunity to explore these programs-and learn more about the University's outstanding facilities and biblically-based curriculum.

Guests may tour the Engineering, Nursing and Science Center, which houses 20 laboratories with state of the art instruments like the Jeol nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometer and Shimadzu Fourier transform infrared spectrophotometer. Exciting, interactive laboratory demonstrations in biology, chemistry, earth science, mathematics and physics will occur throughout the day.

Attendees can get a real taste of University life through a faculty/student mixer, major-specific sessions, and spending the night in a residence hall. Rachel Barnard, a junior chemistry major, says, "The fellowship here at CU is one-of-a-kind, and hopefully prospective students will [glimpse] that community during Science and Math Day. … [What we learn] is not only foundational for further study, but it also challenges us to consider what a difference our Savior makes in our laboratory behavior, academic integrity, and our ethics."

With a Center for Bioethics and dedicated Christian professors, Cedarville offers not only an education, but also a biblically-defined perspective on the intricacies of this universe.
