2017 President's Report

January 5, 2018

2017 President's Report 

As we begin a new calendar year, it's a great time to reflect on God's goodness to Cedarville University in 2017 and all that He has done here. We are so grateful to Him, and grateful to you, as well, for entrusting your son or daughter to us

We'd like to share the 2017 President's Report with you. You'll notice a common thread: God has richly blessed Cedarville University. And everything we do, we do for Him. From record enrollment to cherished times in chapel to students taking the Gospel to a lost and hurting world, you’ll see that God continues to have His sovereign hand on our campus.

And, as we look to the new year, you can be confident that, by God's grace, we will continue to stand for the Word of God and the Testimony of Jesus Christ. We will remain resolute in pursuing our vision to transform lives for godly service, vocational distinction, and cultural engagement. Please take time to review this report and reflect on God's favor upon Cedarville University.

upcoming eventsWe want to let you know about two upcoming events on campus that affect you as parents.

Final Exams/End of First Semester

Final exams for fall semester are December 13-15.

Residence halls will close for Christmas break on Saturday, December 16, at 5 p.m. Make sure your student has secured a ride or scheduled flights for the break. Student Life Programs provides shuttle transportation to and from Dayton International Airport, if needed. You can arrange a shuttle online. Classes resume for spring semester January 9.

Li'l Sibs Weekend

Does your student have younger siblings at home? Bring them to campus February 16-18 for Li'l Sibs Weekend! There will be a full array of fun activities planned for them, and we’ll even have some events just for parents. You can enjoy a Parent Coffee House on Friday evening and a Parent Brunch on Saturday morning. For more information and to register, visit the Li'l Sibs Weekend website.

P.S. As you're doing your Christmas shopping online this year, consider using AmazonSmile. Enter Cedarville University as your charitable organization, and Cedarville will receive 5% of your purchase price. It's an easy way to cross items off your shopping list while benefiting our students!

Stinger's, our campus snack shop and favorite lunch place, went through a major renovation and expansion this summer. It's now open and the students are loving it! Thank you to all of the parents who gave generously to this project.
