Choosing Cedarville and Saying Good-bye: One Parent's Story

October 6, 2014

Dr. Chris Brauns, Pastor of The Red Brick Church in Stillman Valley, IL, is the guest contributor for today's Parent Prep post. A parent of a Cedarville freshman, he and his wife Jamie just completed the college search process with their son and now share perspectives on the importance of that decision. Dr. Brauns is an author whose books include Unpacking Forgiveness: Biblical Answers for Complex Questions and Deep Wounds. Chris and Jamie have four children including Christopher who is attending Cedarville University.


A few weeks ago my wife, Jamie, and I left our son, Christopher, to begin college at Cedarville University. We smiled for final pictures outside the Dixon Ministry Center. But we cried on the way home. It is a hard transition for parents.

Our emotions didn’t stop once we pulled into our garage. A few days after we left our son at college, I walked into our bedroom and Jamie was quietly emotional. I didn’t have to ask why. We always knew our children would fly away quickly, but it seems as though it has been only a few days rather than 18 years. We picked our baby boy up at the hospital on Monday and he left for college on Friday.

Christopher’s decision to go to Cedarville was the culmination of a long process. Our decision came down to a combination of several key factors...

"Waive" Goodbye to Application Fees...and be Entered to Win a Scholarship!

September 30, 2014

College application fees can add up fast! Thirty dollars here; fifty dollars there. Why pay them if you don't have to?

Most universities offer application fee waivers for students who apply by a specific deadline, typically in the fall. Here at Cedarville University we're doing that...and more! For example, Cedarville will waive its application fee for all students who apply online by October 31, 2014. However, we're not stopping there. 

300 by ThirtyLast Friday we kicked off our "300 by Thirty" Challenge. Any high school senior or transfer student who applies to Cedarville by September 30 (TODAY!) will be entered into a drawing to win one of up to six $1,000 scholarships* or an exciting Cedarville prize pack! By submitting college applications early and taking advantage of fee waivers and other incentives such as our "300 by Thirty" challenge, students can start saving now on college-related expenses.

Encourage your student to apply to Cedarville early. Just think - that $30 savings could buy a sturdy umbrella and an entire month's supply of Ramen noodles (both of which will greatly enhance your student's college experience), and that $1,000 scholarship will definitely help to offset expenses the first semester!  

Questions? Your student's admissions counselor is available to help! Our team looks forward to meeting you and answering your questions.

*The actual number of scholarships awarded is dependent upon the number of students who apply during the Challenge.
