October 17, 2014

Career FairWhile looking for a full-time career may seem several years away for high school juniors and seniors, Cedarville University understands that the career search should begin much sooner than one’s senior year in college and involves more than just filling out applications. Therefore, each year Cedarville’s Career Services office hosts Career Fairs which are open to all students (freshmen through seniors) as well as alumni and the general public.

Read today's full post to find out who was represented at this year's Fall Career Fair (you'll be amazed!) and learn how Career Services can help your student land a first job!

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!
