Summer Academic Camps

March 24, 2017

summer academic camps 2017

Your student’s college experience is just around the corner. It's time for them to explore their options, focus their dreams, and prepare for the future … all while having an unforgettable summer experience, full of new friends and great memories!

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, engineering, forensic science, geology, music, nursing, pharmacy, psychology, Spanish, theatre, worship, or writing!

While your student explores a career field, camp faculty will challenge them to make their career their calling. They will be challenged to consider how their gifts, skills, and interests can make a difference in this world for Christ. We've packed the schedule with fun activities, too, so students return home with new friends and great memories! 

Deadlines for the summer programs are approaching and some camps fill quickly! Find out more about how your student can apply and register to become a part of the Cedarville University summer experience today!

An Inside View of Cedarville University From the President

March 22, 2017

Inside View logo

Each month our President, Dr. Thomas White, publishes an e-newsletter that shares his “Inside View” into all that is happening at Cedarville University. We'd like to share it with you.

This month you will read about our outstanding placement rates, exciting three-year options for some of our most popular degree programs, and how our pharmacy students are helping fight the opioid epidemic in Ohio. You'll also meet our two-time NCAA Indoor Track & Field 800-meter champion and watch a video about how God used a CUGO missions trip to take one pharmacy student back to China, where she discovered her past and her passion.

As you consider Cedarville for your son or daughter’s education, we hope this “Inside View” gives you a taste of what Cedarville is all about.

The Value of Cedarville's Study Abroad Programs

March 8, 2017

In today's post, Dr. Andrew Wiseman, Professor of Spanish and Director of International Programs, introduces some of the study abroad opportunities that will be available to your son or daughter as a Cedarville student, and he explains how they can greatly enhance the college experience.

Dear Parents,

People walking on the streets of SpainI am writing this letter to you from sunny Valencia, Spain, where a wonderful group of Cedarville students are learning and serving in Cedarville's Study Abroad in Spain program. Students attending Cedarville have the unique opportunity to spend a summer, semester, or a year on approved domestic and international programs, including our most popular sites in Valencia, Spain (Spanish language and culture) and Washington, D.C. (Center for Political Studies), as well as many others. Studying off campus can be an enriching and vital part of your child's college education by enhancing learning in many ways — strengthening specific skills and broadening outlook and thinking, enlarging intercultural abilities and relationships, preparing for life in the global community, and deepening Christian commitment and service.

At Cedarville, our study abroad programs exist throughout the world and cover all majors. Traditionally, students study abroad during their junior or senior year; however, myriad options are available throughout the student's academic career. Many students participate in our international summer programs, where Cedarville University professors teach specific general education and advanced courses at off-campus sites. Please visit our International Programs webpage to view the list of study abroad opportunities!

Students participating in international programs are required to have a cumulative GPA of 2.75 (some programs have higher requirements) and complete a Cedarville study abroad application. Informational meetings are held throughout the year and individual sessions can be set up through International Programs. As you consider your son or daughter studying at Cedarville next year, please encourage them to sign up for one (or more) of these life-changing experiences!

Blessings to you all,

Andrew S. Wiseman, Ph.D.
Director of International Programs Resident Director, Cedarville University in Spain

Dr. Wiseman teaches Spanish and English as a Second Language and coordinates Cedarville's exchange and study abroad programs throughout the world. During the spring and summer semesters, Dr. Wiseman is the Resident Director for Cedarville University in Spain in Seville and Valencia. He spent the spring and summer of 2004 as Cedarville University's first Fulbright Scholar in Tashkent, Uzbekistan. In 2006–2007, Dr. Wiseman was a senior fellow with the U.S. Department of State in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan. Professor Wiseman has been at Cedarville since August 2000.

Proof Positive: Placement Rates

March 6, 2017

group of grduates holding diplomasYou’ve heard us talk a lot about the quality of a Cedarville education. Now, here’s additional proof to support what we’ve been telling you:

In a recent survey of our 2016 graduates, we found that an amazing 97% of the graduating class was either employed or in graduate school within six months of commencement. That’s well above national averages and evidence that our students are well prepared to enter the workforce upon graduation.

In fact, for the past five years, our placement rates consistently have topped national averages, as shown in the graph below.

*NACE data for 2016 will not be released until June 2017.

Even in challenging economic times, employers seek out Cedarville graduates for their academic preparation, work ethic, and character.

Not only are our graduates prepared to obtain good jobs in desirable career fields, they are being equipped to serve God and share the message of the Gospel wherever He leads them. That’s what truly sets Cedarville apart.
