College FairsAs you and your student work through the college search process and, ultimately, decide which university is the best fit for your family, college fairs can be a great first step in learning about the many options. You’ll meet representatives from a wide range of schools and ask the questions that matter the most to you. You may even go home with lots of great SWAG!

Along with representatives from other Christian colleges, Cedarville's admissions counselors will be touring the country this fall taking part in Christian College Fairs hosted by the North American Coalition for Christian Admissions Professionals. And, we'd like to meet YOU!

NACCAP hosts more than 120 fairs across the U.S. and Canada each year. Check online to find fairs in your area, then come and get to know the different options in Christian higher education.

We think you'll see that Cedarville stands out for providing an academically excellent, Gospel-focused education that will equip your student for vocational distinction and godly service.

Celebrating Record Enrollment, God's Working in Students' Lives!

September 11, 2018

Getting Started 2015The 2018–19 academic year is off to a great start! More than 1,000 freshmen and transfer students participated in Getting Started Weekend August 17–19, kicking off the academic year and their Cedarville experience. Cedarville now has 4,193 undergraduate, graduate, and College Now program — our largest enrollment ever.

As with every year, Cedarville started the semester with the Fall Bible Conference. This year we welcomed Sam Allberry, pastor and author from Maidenhead, UK, as the conference speaker. Allberry challenged our students from the book of Mark to truly know who Jesus is. God is already working in our students' lives. What a great way to start the year! (To watch any of the conference sessions, visit our chapel archive.)

Giving students the opportunity to sit under the teaching of nationally recognized Bible speakers, as well as challenging them with highly regarded academic programs, sets Cedarville University apart! As you guide your student through the college search process, discuss the importance of higher education with a biblical worldview and how it can impact them. Visit us to see the difference a rigorous academic program delivered in an authentic Christian community can make.
