Why is Teaching Creation Important at a Christian College?

November 21, 2014

When it comes to their science departments, most Christian universities and colleges either ignore the issue of Creation and Genesis altogether, or they promote theistic evolution or some other harmonization of Genesis. There are only a handful of schools that believe that Genesis is historically accurate and forms a foundation for science, the Bible, and Christian education.

How Do Colleges Make Admissions Decisions?

November 18, 2014

photo of admissions acceptance"Begin with the end in mind." That’s good counsel for just about anything in life. Having a vision and a purpose allows us to stay focused on the end goal.

When colleges make admissions decisions, they are seeking to admit students "with the end in mind." Specifically, will they be successful in their college experience and able to achieve their educational goals at the institution?

Admissions criteria, then, are used as guidelines to help admissions officers determine if students have the "raw materials" to meet a university’s stated outcomes for graduates. At Cedarville, we seek not just to review the past, but also to consider the potential for the future.

Today's post highlights how colleges and universities set their admissions criteria "with the end in mind."

P.S. It's not too late to apply for fall 2015! If your student is considering Cedarville University, encourage him or her to apply online as soon as possible. We would be happy to discuss our admissions criteria with you in greater detail, if you have questions.
