Are Online Courses a Good Fit for Your Student?

October 26, 2016

College Now Logo

Dual credit programs have become an important part of offsetting the high cost of a college education. Typical courses taken for dual credit are general education courses that meet requirements for most any degree – courses in literature, history, psychology, anthropology, or biology, to name a few.

While it is true that students can take these kinds of courses at any liberal arts college, Christian parents recognize the importance of the general education core in shaping their student’s view of the world and their place in it. This is why Cedarville University offers many general education courses to high school students through its College Now program. Since many courses are offered online, students living anywhere in the country can benefit from Cedarville’s biblically integrated and rigorous general education courses

But parents often have questions about whether their student can be successful in an online course. In today's post, guest contributor Paula Kordic, Cedarville’s Dual Enrollment Coordinator, offers some insight that will help you understand the differences between learning in a face-to-face classroom and learning in an online environment.

A Bold, Biblical Approach to Geology

October 24, 2016

Rock formationsAt Cedarville, we approach the study of geology differently from most universities – even ones that call themselves “Christian.” As with every program we offer, our geology program boldly acknowledges the Bible as the ultimate framework for research and study, without sacrificing academic excellence. We are unashamed to adhere to a literal, six-day account of Creation and recognize God as the Creator of all life. We are honored to be included in Answers in Genesis’ select list of Creation Colleges.

Each year, Dr. John Whitmore, Professor of Geology, leads a group of students on a trip to the Grand Canyon, where they examine geological evidence that supports the biblical account of Creation and Noah's Flood. Watch the video below to experience a taste of this incredible trip.

This bold, biblically integrated education is exactly what your student will experience at Cedarville University.

Cedarville Professors Offer Expert, Biblical Opinion on Current Issues

October 19, 2016

Bereans at the Gate logo

In the spring of 2013, five Cedarville University political science, history, and economic professors joined together to create a blog – Bereans at the Gate – that offers a Christ-centered, biblical look at important issues affecting our nation. They address politics, economics, theology, history, law, and culture. As their “About” page explains, “We hope to use the insights we find to peacefully storm the gates that surround our fallen culture.”

There’s never been a time that our nation needed such godly counsel more. It’s been a tumultuous election season, to say the least. We hope you find this blog to be a valuable resource as you wrestle with decisions leading up to election day. It is exactly the kind of biblical integration your student will find at Cedarville University.

For those who live within driving distance of Cedarville,our Center for Political Studies is hosting Election 2016: History in the Making, a free community forum to help citizens navigate the issues of this important presidential election. The forum will be held Wednesday, October 26, from 7–8:30 p.m. in the Dixon Ministry Center on Cedarville’s campus.

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!
