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!

But how do you know if your student is ready for college-level work? If the question posed in the title of this post were not daunting enough, consider that the state of Ohio's College Credit Plus program now allows a seventh grader to participate in a dual credit course — as long as the admitting college or university deems the student "college-ready."

So how do you know if your student is "college-ready?" Today's post offers four key traits to look for when deciding if your high school (or middle school) student is ready for a dual enrollment program.

Announcing New Civil Engineering Major

September 27, 2017

civil engineering

Cedarville University recently added a civil engineering major to its comprehensive list of undergraduate academic offerings. This innovative program will begin in fall 2018 and will equip students to pursue careers in designing, building, and maintaining construction projects and systems in both the public and private sector.

Cedarville University’s School of Engineering and Computer Science already offers accredited degrees in computer, electrical, and mechanical engineering and computer science.

This new major is just another example of Cedarville’s commitment to preparing Christian professionals for in-demand careers. And, Cedarville is also answering the call to take the love of Christ to those in need. Read a recent news release that explains how our new civil engineering degree stems from a desire to make a Gospel impact in areas that need it the most.

Do you know a student who is interested in civil engineering? Encourage them to look at Cedarville! There is still time to apply and be part of the inaugural class in 2018.
