Does College Choice Influence Students' Sexual Behavior?

April 15, 2015

sexual behavior on campusWhere students choose to attend college may have a big impact on their sexual behavior during those critical four years. As Dannah Gresh — founder of Pure Freedom ministries and a Cedarville alumna — explains in a recent blog post, every college provides moral guidance for its students, but the kind of moral guidance will differ greatly for each institution. Dannah gives alarming statistics about sexual behaviors on secular college campuses and the rampant “hook-up" culture that exists there.

At Cedarville University, we want to be different. We are committed to an approach to sexuality and moral purity that reflects biblical values. Your son or daughter will be surrounded by faculty, staff, and fellow students who love the Lord and seek to honor Him with all aspects of their life.

Why Choose a Christian College?

March 11, 2015

Photo of Cedarville's campusWe think a Christ-centered education is vital to equipping your student for a life that honors God both personally and professionally.

But why is choosing a Christian university so important? 

The No. 1 measurable outcome of a university degree in the United States is a decline in a student’s faith. Higher education is not value neutral, and students are walking away from their faith in disturbing numbers. 

But don’t just take our word for it. Christianity Today put together a great resource for parents and their high school students who are working through the decision of whether a Christian college is the right choice for them. 

Read today's post to discover if a Christian university is right for your student.
