Commencement Celebrates Transformed Lives

May 26, 2015

CommencementCedarville University recently graduated its largest class ever, with 745 students earning undergraduate and graduate degrees on Saturday, May 2. 

That’s 745 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.
