Cedarville University just released a brand-new video, and we'd like to share it with you! You may even see someone you know!
Watch the video, and you'll be reminded of the beautiful campus, state-of-the-art facilities, and vibrant community your student is enjoying at Cedarville. Most importantly, you'll be encouraged by the stories of students whose lives are being transformed for godly service, vocational distinction, and cultural engagement through their 1,000 days at Cedarville University.

You’ve heard us talk a lot about the quality of a Cedarville education. We're excited to share new information that affirms the results of our efforts and the caliber of our students and alumni.
In a recent survey of our 2017 graduates, we found that an amazing 97.5% of the graduating class was either employed or in graduate school within six months of commencement. That’s well above national averages and evidence that our students are well-prepared to enter the workforce upon graduation. Employers seek out Cedarville graduates for their academic preparation, work ethic, and character.
In fact, for the past five years, our placement rates have consistently topped national averages, as shown in the graph below.
And, not only are our graduates prepared to obtain good jobs in desirable career fields, they are being equipped to serve God and share the message of the Gospel wherever He leads them. That’s what truly sets Cedarville apart.
P.S. Our Career Services office is one of the big reasons for our graduates' placement success. If your student has not already connected with Career Services, encourage him or her to do so. Career Services offers seven career fairs each year to help students connect with potential employers and build a professional network. The Spring Career Fair is scheduled for February 21.

Li'l Sibs Weekend is coming up, and it's not just for students!
Does your student have younger siblings at home? Then they'll want to join their big sib at Li'l Sibs Weekend on February 16-18. They'll get a firsthand look at college life at Cedarvile while experiencing Alt Night, basketball games, a concert, and more. Kids 12 and older can even stay in the dorms with their big sibs. My younger girls came last year and had a blast!
While your kids are having an awesome time together, you can join other parents for some fun activities:
- Parent Coffee House – Friday, February 16, 7-9 p.m., BTS 102/103 (free event)
- Parent Brunch – Saturday, February 17, 10 a.m.-12 p.m., Stinger's ($5 each)
It'll be a great time to get to know other Cedarville parents. My wife and I will be at both events and hope to meet many of you there.
Register for Li'l Sibs Weekend and parent activities online now!
