A 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 in the top 5 out of all U.S. colleges and universities for making students feel engaged, or involved, with the education process.
When the Journal’s reporter called to learn more about Cedarville's approach, our president, Thomas White, had the opportunity to share how our students engage with each other through chapel and ministries, how faculty bring an eternal perspective to their lectures, and how our student life programs are intentionally educating the whole person. He explained how 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.
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!

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!

This summer, Cedarville University celebrated the full accreditation of the School of Pharmacy by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE). ACPE completed a multiyear assessment that culminated with the graduation of the inaugural 2016 Doctor of Pharmacy class in May. The School, under the excellent leadership of its dean, Dr. Marc Sweeney, enjoyed a seamless accreditation process, achieving each benchmark and receiving strong, positive reports at every phase.
Cedarville's School of Pharmacy is marked by exceptional quality and a heart for the Gospel. A strong, interdisciplinary approach and the intentional Christian mission set the program apart, as does the School’s impressive network of partner institutions and companies that provide training for students across the U.S.
Read a recent press release for the complete story.
Our pharmacy program is just one example of how Cedarville is preparing students to use their vocation to reach the world for Christ.

You still have time to register for Cedarville University summer academic camps — a fun, engaging way for students to explore career options and prepare for their future. But time is running out to — some camps are already full and others are filling quickly!
At Cedarville’s summer academic camps, students can spend a week at Cedarville exploring a career field that interests them. They can choose from art and design, athletic training, business, criminal justice, engineering (FULL), foreign language, forensic science, geology, journalism, medicine, music, nursing (FULL), pharmacy, psychology, theatre, worship, or writing.
In a few short days, students accomplish much more than career exploration. Camp faculty will challenge them to make their career their calling. They will consider how their gifts, skills, and interests can make a difference in this world for Christ.
Encourage your student to attend one of these life-changing camps this summer! Register now before it’s too late!
