An Education That Works

May 8, 2015

Cedarville Magazine spring-summer 15We are excited to give you a “sneak peek” of the spring/summer issue of Cedarville Magazine – “An Education That Works.” A Cedarville education prepares graduates to work in their chosen career fields, be admitted to graduate school, and most importantly, to honor God with their work.

Read through the magazine and you’ll learn why corporate recruiters visit Cedarville to find engineers, why the Washington Post praised our business program for its real-world experience, and why premed students have a leg up when applying to med school. 

You’ll also read how our high placement rate — 96.8% for the class of 2014 — proves our education works and hear from parents about why Cedarville was a great investment for their families.

Enjoy this introduction to Cedarville Magazine and be encouraged as you look forward to the possibilities awaiting your son or daughter at Cedarville University.

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.
