An Education That Works

May 8, 2015

Cedarville Magazine spring-summer 15We are excited to give you a “sneak peek” of the spring/summer issue of Cedarville Magazine – “An Education That Works.” A Cedarville education prepares graduates to work in their chosen career fields, be admitted to graduate school, and most importantly, to honor God with their work.

Read through the magazine and you’ll learn why corporate recruiters visit Cedarville to find engineers, why the Washington Post praised our business program for its real-world experience, and why premed students have a leg up when applying to med school. 

You’ll also read how our high placement rate — 96.8% for the class of 2014 — proves our education works and hear from parents about why Cedarville was a great investment for their families.

Enjoy this introduction to Cedarville Magazine and be encouraged as you look forward to the possibilities awaiting your son or daughter at Cedarville University.
