Wall Street Journal Recognizes Cedarville for Student Engagement

October 17, 2016

Students working on assignmentsA recent Wall Street Journal ranking confirmed what we already knew — Cedarville University does an outstanding job of helping students engage with their education. The Journal listed Cedarville in the top 5 out of all U.S. colleges and universities for making students feel engaged, or involved, with the education process.

When the Journal’s reporter called to learn more about Cedarville's approach, our president, Thomas White, had the opportunity to share how our students engage with each other through chapel and ministries, how faculty bring an eternal perspective to their lectures, and how our student life programs are intentionally educating the whole person. He explained how Cedarville’s life-transforming educational approach can place a small Christian college in Ohio above all the Ivy League institutions because we are engaging students with a Gospel purpose.

According to the report, colleges that rank high in engagement offer an education that can have more depth and meaning. The level of engagement students feel determines how actively they are grappling with concepts and trying to apply them to the real world. If the curriculum is too challenging, or the community too distant, students may disengage. If classes are too easy or life a little too comfortable, they may float passively through school, absorbing little. It’s a difficult balance, and Cedarville is getting it right! 

(Read the Wall Street Journal story to learn more.)

We are grateful both for this opportunity to be a Light for the Gospel and for the affirmation of the quality experience Cedarville provides. This is the kind of education your student can expect on our campus as well.

Encourage students to apply by November 1, and we’ll waive the $30 application fee. Contact our admissions team at 1-800-233-2784 if you have any questions. We are here to serve you!

A Testimony of a Life Transformed

August 31, 2016

English family

At Cedarville University, we talk about the approximately 1,000 days students spend on our campus. But for us, it’s much more than just a slogan: It’s 1,000 days of intentionally shaping students to honor God with their lives — in their vocations, in their families, and in their communities.

For one recent graduate, his 1,000 days led him all the way to Washington, D.C., where he is prepared to serve and make a difference in the lives of the people around him.

Following a successful internship with the office of a Congressman from Virginia, 2016 graduate Grant English recently accepted a full-time staff position with Ohio’s eighth district in the U.S. House of Representatives. When asked why he wanted to work in Washington, D.C., Grant responded with, “Where else can I make a bigger difference in our society than starting with our government?” Cedarville instilled in him a desire to make a profound impact on his world and equipped him to be a servant-leader to the glory of God.

His parents, Evan and Layne English, Cedarville graduates themselves, are grateful for the education their son received and are excited for Grant’s future. “His last four years at Cedarville truly refined him into the man he is today,” explained Evan. “We feel incredibly blessed that God has provided this opportunity for him.”

As you work through the college decision with your student, consider the life-transforming education at Cedarville University!

More than 1,000 students have already applied for Fall 2017! Encourage your student to apply by November 1, and we will waive the $30 application fee.

New Year Off to a Great Start!

August 29, 2016

Getting Started 2016The 2016–17 academic year is off to a great start! Nearly 900 freshmen and transfer students participated in Getting Started Weekend August 19–21, kicking off the academic year and their Cedarville experience.

As with every year, Cedarville started the semester with the Fall Bible Conference. This year we welcomed Greg Gilbert, senior pastor of Third Avenue Baptist Church in Louisville, Kentucky, as the conference speaker. Gilbert spoke to students about how they can be prepared to defend their faith and challenged them to share the Gospel with a fallen world. God is already working in the lives of this year's students. What a great way to start the year! (To watch any of the conference sessions, visit our chapel archive.)

Giving students the opportunity to sit under the teaching of nationally recognized Bible speakers, as well as challenging them with highly regarded academic programs, sets Cedarville University apart! As you guide your student through the college search process, discuss the importance of higher education with a biblical worldview and how it can impact them. Visit us to see the difference a rigorous academic program delivered in an authentic Christian community can make!

Enjoy Cedarville's Chapel From Home!

August 19, 2016

chapelChapel has long been called the heartbeat of Cedarville University, where students, faculty, and staff gather each weekday for dynamic worship and powerful preaching. Chapel is just one way we help our students grow in their walk with God, and most students consider chapel a highlight of their Cedarville education! We've recently completed a renovation and expansion of our beautiful Jeremiah Chapel, and it is ready for the kickoff of a new academic year and our annual Fall Bible Conference.

If you really want to understand Cedarville culture and what makes us "tick," you need to experience chapel.
