Time for the Handoff!

June 8, 2016

Getting StartedMany of you Parent Prep subscribers are about to be parents of a new Cedarville University student! I have enjoyed sharing information and resources with you throughout this year. It will be exciting to meet you and your new student (along with 900 others!) when you arrive on campus for Getting Started in August.

Now for the handoff ...

The University communicates regularly with parents of current students providing helpful information about upcoming events, parent resources, and Cedarville news. You will receive your first ParentConnect email June 13.

If your student is attending another college or if you simply wish to unsubscribe from the ParentConnect monthly emails, you may do so at any time. Just visit the email subscription management site, enter your email address, and update your communication preferences.

On behalf of all of us on the Enrollment Management and Marketing team, welcome to the Cedarville University family!

Choosing Your Student's Residence Hall and Roommate

May 4, 2016

Students in a typical dorm roomIs your admitted student ready to choose a Cedarville residence hall and select a roommate? We’ve made it easy!

Your student’s personalized portal My.Cedarville.edu has all the resources he or she will need to easily transition from home to a residence hall room on campus. Students can visit My.Cedarville.edu today to:

  • Get to know their future classmates through the Cedarville 2016-17 Facebook group
  • Find a roommate with RoomSync, roommate-matching software that compares your student's likes and dislikes with other new students 
  • Reference the Timeline for Campus Housing Selection to find out when your student will be granted access to the housing selection system. Students’ access is based on when they made their reservation deposit. 

We've also added a brand-new resource: virtual 360-degree tours of every residence hall option!

With a Cedarville student as your guide, you can tour each dorm and see the lounge, laundry facilities, bathrooms, and a student room. Choose either the women's or men's residence halls, and begin your tour now! 

If you have any questions about the housing selection process, contact us at 1-800-CEDARVILLE. Your student’s admissions counselor will be happy to help!

Today is the National College Decision Day!

May 1, 2016

Along with our admissions and financial aid teams, I have enjoyed communicating with ParentPrep subscribers this year as you have considered Cedarville University.

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:

  • Christ-centered focus: 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, NASA, 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.

For those who are still finalizing this decision as a family, you may reach me personally today at suppleej@cedarville.edu. It would be a privilege to serve you.
