Happy Thanksgiving!

November 26, 2015

Thanksgiving is the perfect opportunity to say how much we appreciate you as a parent and your part in your student’s college decision process!

Research affirms that parents are the top influencers of a student's college decision. You help to shape the conversation about what is important. Thank you for making a Christian education -- one that presents a distinctly biblical worldview in every academic discipline -- a priority for your student.

From the Cedarville family to yours, may you experience the blessing of God's goodness and peace during this Thanksgiving season!

P.S. Do you know high school seniors who are considering attending Cedarville University next fall? Complete our referral form and encourage them to apply online. When a student you referred applies, we'll send you a free Cedarville T-shirt!
