Wall Street Journal Recognizes Cedarville for Student Engagement

October 16, 2017

Students working on assignmentsA recent Wall Street Journal ranking confirmed what we already knew — Cedarville University does an outstanding job of helping students engage with their education. The Journal listed Cedarville as No. 4 out of all U.S. colleges and universities for making students feel engaged, or involved, with the education process.

According to the report, colleges that rank high in engagement offer an education that can have more depth and meaning. The level of engagement students feel determines how actively they are grappling with concepts and trying to apply them to the real world. If the curriculum is too challenging, or the community too distant, students may disengage. If classes are too easy or life a little too comfortable, they may float passively through school, absorbing little. It’s a difficult balance, and Cedarville is getting it right!

At Cedarville, our students engage with each other through chapel and ministries, our faculty members bring an eternal perspective to their lectures, and our student life programs are intentionally educating the whole person. Cedarville’s life-transforming educational approach can place a small Christian college in Ohio above all the Ivy League institutions because we are engaging students with a Gospel purpose.

We are grateful both for this opportunity to be a Light for the Gospel and for the affirmation of the quality experience Cedarville provides. This is the kind of education your student can expect on our campus as well.

Encourage students to apply by November 1, and we’ll waive the $30 application fee. Contact our admissions team at 1-800-233-2784 if you have any questions. We are here to serve you!

Career FairCedarville University is committed to equipping your student with challenging academics integrated with a biblical worldview. But we don’t stop there. Our Career Services department works hard to create opportunities for students to move into career positions immediately after graduation.

Last week, Career Services held its first career fair of the year, with 95 companies attending, including well-known organizations like Honda, Boeing, Procter & Gamble, and General Electric. Students gained valuable experience communicating with potential employers while expanding their network of contacts.

Each year, students land internships and permanent career positions as a result of these career fairs. Career Services has several more career fairs planned for this year, giving students additional opportunities to search for jobs and hone their interviewing skills.
