Pumpkin Chai Lattes and Cedarville: Planning a Fall Campus Visit
September 24, 2013
Today's Parent Prep post was provided by Sarah Allen, who leads the University's campus visit opportunities.
Pumpkin chai lattes, cozy sweaters, red leaves, and a beautiful lake in the middle of it all --this is my favorite time of year at Cedarville!
I can vividly remember being on my way to a Bible class my freshman year and crunching through the leaves with my friends. We were on our way from chapel and during that particular service, my desire to find the major that God had directed for my life had increased. At that second, I couldn’t imagine being anywhere else. I felt close to the Lord, close to these brothers and sisters in Christ, and excited about the future.
I’d love to have you and your student come and experience the same thing!
It’s absolutely true that there is "no place like home." For those of us who attend or work at Cedarville, this resonates. Attending chapel, going to class, grabbing lunch in Chuck’s (our campus dining hall), dodging students on bikes and longboards – it’s all part of being a student at Cedarville.
It’s hard to imagine your child learning, eating, and living in a place that you haven’t seen in person. Our campus visit team thrives on helping families plan personalized visits that help them experience the parts of campus that are most important to them. Because this is one of the biggest decisions your family will make, we take seriously the task of assisting you in seeing everything you need to do during your time in our "home." For some families, this is a meeting with a particular faculty member or coach. For others, it might be sitting in on class all day. We would be happy to arrange anything we can for you!
There is always something happening on campus, and our Student Life and Athletic teams would love to have you join them at these events! From volleyball to soccer to basketball, there are always fall and winter sports to watch. If you would like to see a movie that is playing on campus or watch a student’s senior theatre performance, you are more than welcome to join current students in enjoying these many activities.
So what are you waiting for? There are chai lattes, incredible chapel speakers, whitecaps on Cedar Lake, and a life-changing educational experience waiting for you and your student to check out at Cedarville!
