What should I pack?

This packing list includes personal essential & non-essential items as well as items shared between roommates. Check out pages 8-11 of the Residence Hall Guidelines to find specific room regulations.

What is a STING group?

Sting groups are made up of 10-11 new students and a few upperclassmen. These upperclassmen are the Sting Leaders who will lead your group through Getting Started Weekend. The purpose of these groups is to provide opportunities for community and connections, as well as fostering conversations for new students to learn more about Cedarville.

Find out your STING group by going to the "Find Your STING Group" section located on the app!
