Dear Parent,

Greetings from Cedarville University and the quiet Village of Cedarville, Ohio. Getting Started Weekend 2016 is only few weeks away, and we are working hard and looking forward to having the campus full of new and returning students.

ParentConnect was created with the purpose of providing parents with relevant information about Cedarville University, introducing parents to events and services that are tailored to parents, as well as providing parents with a snapshot of student life at Cedarville University.  Every month you will receive at least two different posts from ParentConnect, and our desire is to keep you informed and to equip you to serve your student from home.

With Getting Started only a few short weeks away we wanted to update you with some important information.

  • Homecoming and Parents Weekend – September 30 – October 1
  • CU LEADership Conference – January 20–21, 2017
