We share Kim and Brie's story with you for encouragement and perspective on how God can use the next four years in your student's personal, professional, and spiritual development.

Investing in students' lives is why those of us on the faculty and staff choose to serve at Cedarville University! God sends us the most amazing students, and we are humbled to be a part of how God is working in their lives for His glory.

Summer Academic Camps Explore Career Interests (and Other Great Opportunities)

March 24, 2015

Summer Camps

Make this summer one your students will never forget by sending them to a Cedarville academic or sports camp ... or have them get a head start on college by taking a college course on campus or online from home!

Cedarville Academic Camps give students the opportunity to spend a week at Cedarville exploring the world of art and design, business, criminal justice, engineering, geology, journalism, medicine, music, psychology, theatre, worship ministry, or writing! Your students will accomplish much more than career exploration. Camp faculty will challenge them to make their career their calling. They will be challenged to consider how their gifts, skills, and interests can make a difference in this world for Christ. We've packed the schedule with fun activities, too, so students return home with new friends and great memories! 

College Now Summer Studies is Cedarville's residential college study option for rising high school juniors and seniors. Students experience campus life and earn three hours of college credit. Choosing from a class in Spiritual Formation or Politics and American Culture, your student will study with a top Cedarville University professor in a small-class setting while enjoying campus life for two weeks (June 13–27).

Online course options and sports camps are other great summer possibilities at Cedarville! Learn more about all of these options at cedarville.edu/summer.

Deadlines for the summer programs are coming quickly! Find out more about how your student can apply and register to become a part of the Cedarville University summer experience today!

The Value of a College Degree

March 18, 2015

GraduateIt’s well-documented that on average, college graduates earn more than those with less education. A recent article from The Hamilton Project confirms that and takes it a step further, explaining how earnings vary across college majors. We encourage you to check it out as you and your student talk through college options and major selection.

With top grad school and career placement rates (a remarkable 96.8% of the class of 2014 responding to a survey was working or in grad school within six months of graduation), Cedarville University is intentional about equipping our students to succeed in their chosen careers. Employers seek out Cedarville graduates for their academic preparation, work ethic, and character.

Of course, salary potential or job availability are not the only -- or even the most important -- considerations in choosing a career. A degree from Cedarville University does more than just prepare students for a spot in the marketplace. Our students are equipped for lifelong leadership and service through an education marked by excellence and grounded in biblical truth. We prepare them to use their vocation to glorify God in all they do.
