The Transformed Tour
We are still marveling at all that God accomplished during our Transformed Tour this summer. Lives were changed through the power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. If you were not able to join us on one of our 13 stops, or if you want to experience it again, we recorded one of the events for you to enjoy in its entirety. Watch it and be encouraged by the dynamic worship, inspiring stories, and challenging message from God’s Word.
Fall Bible Conference
We started fall semester with the annual Fall Bible Conference, a time to center our thoughts on God’s Word and prepare for the semester ahead. This year’s speaker, Brian White, Lead Pastor of Harvest Church in Carmel, Indiana, and a member of our Board of Trustees, encouraged students to humbly surrender everything to Christ, and hundreds did just that! God moved powerfully in our midst.
My time at Cedarville has been marked by a deepening of my understanding of the Gospel. The Lord has taught me so much through the people He has placed in my life here. So many of my relationships, classes, and experiences at Cedarville point me to the Word and the Gospel every day, and that is transforming me!
Stewarding His Gifts
We are grateful for the gifts that God has given to Cedarville University, and we seek to steward them well — for His glory, not our own.
The fall, we experienced our 16th-consecutive record enrollment. Even as college enrollment across the nation declines, God is continuing to bring students to Cedarville who desire an excellent education grounded in biblical truth.
Breaking Ground on the Scharnberg Business Center
As part of homecoming weekend, we officially broke ground on the $40 million Lorne C. Scharnberg Business Center. This world-class facility that is being constructed on the north side of Cedar Lake will house our business and communication academic programs, the Center for the Advancement of Cybersecurity, and the Berry Center for Free Enterprise as well as our students' favorite — Einstein Bros. Bagels!
Callan Athletic Center Expansion Complete
On August 10, we dedicated the Athletic and Academic Expansion to the Callan Athletic Center. This newly expanded space provides a varsity weight room and team room for Athletics as well as classrooms, labs, and faculty offices for our Master of Athletic Training and PA (Physician Assistant) Studies program.
Wood Hall Opens
Anticipating another record enrollment, we opened Wood Hall, a 120-bed women’s residence hall, in August. The new hall was named in honor of longtime Cedarville administrator Dr. Duane Wood, who passed away in December 2019.
Everything about this place points me back to God. I have amazing professors who love and care about me and pour into me and want me to do well.

PA Program Achieves Accreditation-Provisional Status
In October, we announced that the ARC-PA (the professional accreditor for PA programs in the U.S.) has granted Accreditation-Provisional status to Cedarville University’s PA (Physician Assistant) Studies program. ARC-PA grants Accreditation-Provisional status to qualified programs that meet its high professional standards for PA education but have not yet enrolled students. We plan to enroll our first students in May 2023.
Pharmacy Students #3 in the Nation at Research Challenge
A group of students in our Doctor of Pharmacy program, under the guidance of Dr. Stephanie Tubb, Assistant Professor of Pharmacy Practice, placed third in the country at the 2022 American College of Clinical Pharmacy (ACCP) Clinical Research Challenge. Our students continue to excel academically as they shine the light of Christ on a national platform.
Cyber Team Is Best in Ohio
Our cybersecurity student team placed first against the top college teams in Ohio at the Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition (CCDC). This was the first year Cedarville topped the competition in Ohio, earning a trip to the regional contest. This year, the cyber team was also invited to participate in Hack the Port ’22, an elite competition in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
More importantly than just the excellent education you receive, you’re surrounded by people who care about more than what you’re learning in class; they care about your heart.

At Cedarville I have seen some sweet transformations in both my relationships with God and with others on campus.
