Large group of students on sidewalk walking from the Stevens Student CenterWe’ve told you about Cedarville’s outstanding academic programs and biblical, Christ-centered focus behind everything we do. You’ve even heard parents share why their family chose Cedarville, and why they’re glad they did. Now, we thought you might be interested to hear what our students are saying about their Cedarville experience.

According to data from a recent Ruffalo Noel Levitz survey, Cedarville University consistently meets or surpasses the needs and expectations of its students.

The survey, which elicited responses from nearly 1,200 students, showed that Cedarville’s student satisfaction rankings surpass the national average for private, four-year institutions by a rather wide margin.

The survey included questions regarding perceptions about the overall quality of Cedarville’s academics, campus environment, and opportunities for spiritual growth.

According to the data, 88 percent of students who responded said Cedarville met or exceeded their expectations for their college experience. The national average is just 80 percent, according to Ruffalo Noel Levitz.

Of the students responding to the survey, 86 percent said they would enroll again at Cedarville University. In comparison, approximately 68 percent in the national survey indicated they would attend the college they’re currently attending.

Overall, Cedarville students believe their professors are knowledgeable and helpful, and felt their academic experience allowed them to grow intellectually and prepare them for their career. They also stated Cedarville provided an environment that increased their understanding of God, while providing excellent ministry opportunities and high-quality daily chapel services. Students indicated that their education is worth the financial investment.
