Getting Started

Your first weekend on campus will be an exciting time to move in, meet new friends, and get connected to Cedarville. We’ve got an awesome weekend planned to make the transition fun and easy for you and your whole family. You'll get acclimated to the Cedarville culture as your parents are assured that you are safe and in good hands.

Kick-Off Party

Come visit the tents and booths of more than 100 orgs, ministries, and vendors as you explore how you can be involved at Cedarville and in the community! Then grab some friends and head to the SSC hillside for live music, fun activities, HUGE prize giveaways and, of course, a movie by the lake. There’s no better way to kick off the new year!

ALT Nights

The ALT Night (The Alternative) is the largest consecutive campus event that Cedarville offers. ALTs feature a wide variety of themed activities, like games and pre-release movies on the big screen, and they’re always free! ALTs also features unique opportunities that encourage you to serve others and give back. You'll have fun as you build community on campus.

Meet at Stinger's, put away your phone and devices, and be prepared to build meaningful relationships through intentional conversations over a great cup of coffee. It's this type of authentic community that makes Cedarville truly unique!

Take a break from exam preparation as you celebrate Campus Christmas. You'll enjoy music, movies, games, pictures with Santa and his elves, a late-night breakfast, and most importantly, a time to celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It's the most wonderful time of the year!
