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!

Does College Choice Influence Students' Sexual Behavior?

April 20, 2016

couple holding handsWhere 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.

P.S. If your student has been accepted to Cedarville for Fall 2016, be sure to submit your $250 reservation deposit by May 1 to ensure a place in the incoming class.
