Why Cedarville: I have a long story about how I came to Cedarville. To make it short, it was God who has led me all the way here. I liked and still like Cedarville because of its commitment to the Gospel and God's Word. This is a campus where Christians are serious with God's Word and strive to live out what they believe.
