Why Cedarville?

As a graduate of Cedarville, I was glad to have an opportunity to teach and encourage students here, giving back the blessings that faculty members granted me during my four years as an undergraduate. I enjoy working with the high-quality students here and learning from my colleagues about how to excel as a Christian scholar.
