March 27, 2015

Grads walking toward chapelWhile your family may be anticipating a high school graduation, we want to share a story written two years ago by a mom reflecting on her daughter's college journey. We share Kim and Brie's story with you for encouragement and perspective on how God can use the next four years in your student's personal, professional, and spiritual development.

Investing in students' lives is why those of us on the faculty and staff choose to serve at Cedarville University! God sends us the most amazing students, and we are humbled to be a part of how God is working in their lives for His glory.

Continue to today's post to read Kim and Brie's story, including an update on what Brie is doing now!

Come Visit Us This Spring!

February 28, 2015

Spring picture-your ticket to visit

How do you know that Cedarville University is the right fit for your son or daughter? The best way to decide is to visit campus!

This spring, plan to spend a day as our guest, meet the students and faculty who make Cedarville unique, and experience campus life in action. Enjoy your own personal visit, or register for the CU Friday event on March 27 or one of the upcoming All-Access Orientation events for admitted students.

All-Access Orientation is an event that is exclusively for students who have already been accepted, allowing them to experience life “behind the scenes” at Cedarville. Students will spend time exploring their intended major, attending classes, taking a final tour, and staying overnight in the residence halls to experience a Friday night on campus. It really is the best way to see if Cedarville is the place for your student!

When you arrive at Cedarville, you may know us only from brochures and the website. When you head home, we want Cedarville to be a place with great memories, new friends, and exciting possibilities. We think you'll want to return — as a Cedarville parent! Schedule your visit!

P.S. For admitted students, we will cover the travel cost (up to $100 for mileage or $200 for airfare) when you visit Cedarville for the first time by April 30! Find out how this offer applies to you.

Choosing Cedarville: An Answer to Prayer

February 18, 2015

RousterToday’s ParentPrep blog post is written by guest contributors Gary and Carol Rouster. Gary and Carol are both 1984 Cedarville graduates who live in Jackson, Michigan. They share their experience of helping their son, Nathan, navigate his college choices and learning to let go and trust him into God’s hands.

"When it came time to start to look at colleges with our son, Nathan, our first choice was, of course, Cedarville University, our alma mater. However, our son had a different view. Being an only child, he grew up attending the same school where his Dad taught, so every day from kindergarten through 12th grade, he rode to school with Dad and everyone knew our son, because they knew his Dad...."
