Why Cedarville?

As a student at Cedarville University, I was blessed by professors and mentors who modeled love for Christ, a commitment to excellence, and servant-hearted leadership. It’s a joy to be back on campus, now as a faculty member, to encourage a new generation of students to pursue Jesus and get excited about math.
