Christmas Break Ideas

December 22, 2014

Christmas break is a great time for students to sleep in, spend time with friends, and — most importantly — celebrate Christ's birth. But it's also a good opportunity to take care of important college-related details. Encourage your students to get a jump start on 2015 and move that much closer to their Cedarville career.

  • Decision made? Submit the $250 reservation deposit during break! (Is your student's application incomplete? Check online for missing pieces, then request references or documents to be sent right away in the New Year.)
  • Check out the FAFSA website. Required for all need-based aid, the FAFSA application for the 2015–16 school year will be available January 1. Apply early for maximum grants and scholarships.
  • Register for our FREE "How to Complete the FAFSA" webinar, offered Monday, January 12, at 8 p.m. EST.
  • Plan a campus visit. It's the best way to see if Cedarville University is the place for your student!
  • Talk to a Cedarville student or alumnus who lives in your area. Need a referral? Send us an email and we'll help connect you.
  • Learn more about the major your student is considering. We have more than 100 programs of study from which to choose.
  • Join the CU fan club on Facebook! See who else is connected.
  • Plan a prayer time with friends. College is a big decision. Ask God to give you wisdom, provide for your needs, and make His direction clear!
  • Above all, celebrate our Savior's birth! He is the reason Cedarville exists and the focus of everything we seek to accomplish in the lives of students!
Merry Christmas!

Why Is a Bible Minor Important?

December 15, 2014

At Cedarville University, we take our mission statement very seriously: “Cedarville University is a Christ-centered learning community equipping students for lifelong leadership and service through an education marked by excellence and grounded in biblical truth.” Not only is there biblical integration in every course, but all students complete a Bible minor as a part of their academic program. Always among our students’ favorites, Bible classes prepare them to think about their vocation in light of God’s Word and to find their place in God’s mission.

The Bible minor at Cedarville is made up of five courses:

  • Course One: Spiritual Formation challenges students to pursue a Spirit-led relationship with Christ through personal study of God’s Word. Students learn to read and interpret the Bible well, with a view toward their growth in Christian maturity. 
  • Courses Two and Three: Old Testament Literature and New Testament Literature reinforce the Bible-reading skills developed in Spiritual Formation by setting the trajectory for a lifetime of reading the text. Students learn how the chapters, books, and sections of the Bible fit together to tell the story of the Gospel. 
  • Courses Four and Five: Theology 1 and 2 help form a biblical-theological foundation for a lifetime pursuit of ministry within the church and within the student’s vocation. Students systematize their biblical knowledge by carefully thinking through what the Bible teaches and how Christian theologians of the past have answered these questions. 

So why is a Bible minor an important addition to students' Christ-centered education? These classes challenge their thinking by exalting Christ through the careful reading of God’s Word. More importantly, they will transform students' lives as they boldly live out God's call.
