U.S. News, College Rankings, and Your Search Process

September 15, 2014

Bar ChartThis is the time of year for college rankings.

Just this week U.S. News & World Report released its annual college ratings publication, ranking Cedarville University in the Top 10 (sixth overall) in the Midwest according to its best regional colleges rankings for 2015.

Whether it's U.S.News or the Washington Monthly (where Cedarville was ranked #15 in the national Top 100 Baccalaureate Colleges list this fall), many publications are taking a look at what's happening in higher education and seeking to assign a value or ranking to educational experiences and university outcomes.

So, how should you use the rankings? What value do they have in your college search process? 

Read today's Parent Prep post for recommendations and perspectives on how to factor rankings into a college search.

Are You Ready for the Best Summer Yet?

April 8, 2014

Make this summer one your student will never forget by attending a Cedarville academic or sports camps ... or taking a college class on campus or online from home! 

Cedarville Academic Camps give students the opportunity to spend a week at one of the finest Christian universities exploring the world of art and design, business, criminal justice, engineering, geology, journalism, medicine, music, psychology, theatre, worship ministry, or writing! Your student will accomplish much more than career exploration. Camp faculty will challenge them to make their career their calling. Your student 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!

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 14-28).

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