Cedarville recently graduated its largest class ever, with 761 students earning undergraduate and graduate degrees on Saturday, May 7.

Watch the 2016 Commencement Highlights VideoThat’s 761 students whose lives were transformed by their time at Cedarville: Students who grew closer in their walk with the Lord from intentional mentoring, daily chapels, and biblical integration in their course work. Students who were challenged by rigorous academics and prepared to succeed in their chosen field. Students who were in the same place as your student just four years ago, and are now ready to go out into the world and make a difference for Christ. 

Be encouraged that your student, too, will experience amazing transformation at Cedarville, and you’ll be surprised at how fast the next four years will go! We will be praying for you and your student as you prepare for the transition to college life.

Measuring Cedarville's ROI (Return on Investment)

April 27, 2016

As high school seniors and their parents sit down to finalize a college decision before the May 1 deadline, one topic is nearly always part of the discussion: cost.

While many universities — including Cedarville — are taking intentional steps to make a college education more affordable, parents are increasingly looking at job placement rates in order to weigh an institution’s benefits against its costs in an effort to decide whether or not a considerable investment is worthwhile.

Cedarville's placement rates continue to be impressive. In a six-month post-graduation final destination survey, 97.2% of Cedarville's class of 2015 reported being employed or in graduate school during that time period. That's well above the national averages reported by the National Association of Colleges and Employers, which has reported an average of 88% over the last five years.

But don't just take our word for it. Read today's post and you'll hear what parents are saying about their children's experience at Cedarville, and why they think Cedarville is worth the investment.


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.

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.
