Experience Vibrant Community

At Cedarville, our mission is clear: We want every student to be equipped to love God, love others, live with integrity, and pursue excellence in everything they do. Whether it’s late-night conversations in the residence hall, a service project with your campus organization, or an evening sharing the Gospel at a nearby college — your Cedarville experience will be filled with new friendships, fun activities, and incredible memories. At Cedarville, every event and every program is intentionally designed to build a strong community and point you to Christ. Your time at Cedarville will not just be fun; it will be truly life-transforming.
