by Public Relations Office—Cedarville, Ohio

Cedarville, Ohio—Cedarville University will host its seventh annual Social Work Day on Saturday, Sept. 13.

High school students interested in pursuing social work or counseling careers are invited to attend. Participants will learn about the profession, interact with social work professors and tour a local social service agency. During a luncheon on campus, students will also hear first-hand from social work alumni about their professional experiences and insights.

The day begins at 9:30 a.m. with a campus tour and ends at 4 p.m. following a question-and-answer session. Students arriving Friday night may stay in the University’s residence halls. Parents of participants are also encouraged to attend.

“We will provide detailed information about our curriculum,” says Dr. Nelson Henning, chair of the department of social work, criminal justice and sociology. “And we’ll explain how we’re committed to offering a biblical worldview in an educational setting.”

This year half the participants will visit the Family Violence Prevention Center, and the other half will visit the Greene County Juvenile Court. Students will tour the locations and meet with a social worker to discuss the day-to-day job in the field.
