Cedarville Receives High Marks in Student Survey

September 13, 2019

Dr. Jason Lee talking with female and male studentIf you really want to know what sets Cedarville apart, you should listen to those who know us best – our students!

Last spring, we asked students to rate Cedarville on five important scales related to their classes, professors, and spiritual growth. The results overwhelmingly validated that what we say about the University matches students’ experience.

Overall, Cedarville earned a 4.63 ranking (out of 5.0) from the more than 500 students who participated in the survey. The statement “My classes have been taught from a biblical worldview” earned a perfect 5-star ranking from students. The remaining statements earned scores of 4.56 to 4.65, including:

  • Cedarville University has helped me grow in my walk with Christ.
  • Cedarville academics are marked by excellence.
  • My professors have demonstrated care for me as a person.
  • My academic program is preparing me well for a career.

As a university, we are encouraged that students affirmed what we’ve always known to be true: Cedarville is doing a great job of providing excellent academics in submission to biblical authority.

Graduation Celebrates Transformed Lives

May 8, 2019

smiling graduatesThis past weekend, Cedarville University celebrated the graduation of 815 new alumni, including those earning both undergraduate and graduate degrees.

More than just a number, these 815 students represent lives that were transformed by their time at Cedarville. Students who grew closer in their walk with the Lord from intentional mentoring, daily chapels, and biblical integration in their coursework. Students who were challenged by rigorous academics and prepared to succeed in their chosen field. Students who were in the same place as your student just four years ago, and are now ready to go out into the world and make a difference for Christ.

Be encouraged that your student, too, will experience amazing transformation at Cedarville, and you’ll be surprised at how fast the next four years will go! We will be praying for you and your student as you prepare for the transition to college life.

National College Decision Day Is Today!

May 1, 2019

Today is May 1 — the National College Decision Day! We are so thankful for the number of students who have already confirmed their plans to be at Cedarville in August. Here are the top reasons students and parents give for their choice:

  • Biblical worldview. It's not just a buzzword here; it's intentionally part of every aspect of classes, residence life, activities, and ministries.
  • Academic reputation. We have the in-demand majors students want, and our grads are excelling at places like Harvard, Honda, and Procter & Gamble (just to name a few). Cedarville doesn't just "talk" about quality. It is validated by national surveys, college rankings, job and graduate school placement data, competition results, and test scores.
  • Outstanding value. The rigorous academic experience is life-changing, costs and scholarships are competitive, and Cedarville is worth the investment.

If this is what you desire for your student, I encourage you to take that next step by faith and submit a reservation deposit today. I do not believe you will ever regret that decision.

If your student has already paid the deposit and is excited to enroll this fall, thank you! We are privileged to come alongside parents like you to equip young men and women for professional excellence and Gospel impact. We're excited to welcome your family to the Cedarville family in August!

Still finalizing this decision, you may reach me personally today. It would be a privilege to serve you.
