Cedarville's Center for Biblical and Theological Studies glowing in the evening light


Cedarville offers three days of exciting, informational sessions and fun activities to help International, MK, and TCK students get oriented to campus and university life. The advanced arrival gives students time to acclimate to their surroundings and get to know other students as well. Orientation sessions cover topics like academic adjustment and support, cultural adjustment, banking, employment, and important details about maintaining visa status. Families are welcome to participate in orientation and take advantage of the special sessions for parents. Don’t miss out on this great introduction to Cedarville and get a jump-start on the 800+ freshmen who will arrive just a few days later!
