Why Do Alumni Send Their Students to Cedarville?

April 6, 2021

education major in classroom with young students with hands raised and papers in handWhat makes Cedarville alumni want to send their children to Cedarville? For Cathy Exline, a Cedarville 1995 elementary education graduate, it can be summed up in one word: excellence.

Cathy found that her Cedarville experience prepared her well for the challenges of classroom teaching. "When I began my first position teaching fifth grade, my colleagues and I would chat about our college experiences," she explained. "I found that I was much more prepared to be in the classroom than other new teachers because Cedarville required and provided many more field experiences in actual classrooms. That hands-on experience allowed me to go into my first few years more confident and prepared."

Now, years later, Cathy’s daughter, Cayla, is finishing her junior year at Cedarville as a communication major.  "Of course, I wanted her to choose Cedarville," Cathy shared, "but I knew it would have to be her choice." Cayla chose Cedarville after exploring several other Christian universities.

"When we visited Cedarville, I was pleasantly surprised that many things have changed since I attended," Cathy said, referencing things like relaxed dress code and rules and new facilities. "But one thing that did not change was Cedarville's commitment to excellence in all they do."

"I was pleased with her decision to choose Cedarville and I am excited about all the opportunities she will receive." Cathy explained.

Whatever the major, Cedarville University is equipping students with experiences that enrich their academically excellent, biblically integrated coursework.


P.S. If your student has been accepted to Cedarville for fall 2021, there is still time to pay the deposit to reserve his or her place. But don't wait ... deposits are already at an all-time high! Students who deposit after the May 1 deadline may be placed on a waitlist.

Consider the Early Start June Term for Freshmen

March 30, 2021

Students working on assignmentsStudents who plan to enroll as freshmen this fall can join other incoming new students for our Early Start June term from June 12-26. During this two-week residential experience, students will take one general education course while they meet new friends and get to know campus better.

They can choose from the following general education courses:

  • The Bible and the Gospel (the first Bible minor course)
  • Essentials of Economics
  • Politics and American Culture
  • U.S. History II
  • General Psychology

Students will get a taste of Cedarville academics, but in a more relaxed environment and at a significant cost savings. Getting a gen ed course out of the way now will allow them to take lighter loads later, when they need it most. For credit-dense majors like nursing and engineering, this opportunity is particularly valuable, but all students will benefit from the chance to acclimate to campus, meet faculty and staff, and make new friends before they start in the fall.

The cost for Early Start is just $999, which includes housing and meals, activities, and tuition for the 3-credit hour course (which is discounted by 80%). Space is limited to the first 75 incoming freshmen who register, so don’t delay!

 


 

If you have a high school rising junior or senior, they can participate in Summer Scholars, our two-week residential summer program for high school students June 12-26. Students will take a 3-credit course while getting a taste of college life and participating in fun campus activities.

Plan a Campus Visit This Spring

March 9, 2021

View of Cedarville University campus in th springHow do you know that Cedarville University (or any other college) is the right fit for your son or daughter? The best way to decide is to visit campus!

This spring, plan to spend a few informative hours as our guest, see what makes Cedarville unique, and experience campus life in action. Enjoy your own personalized visit, register for CU Friday on March 26, or attend one of the upcoming All-Access Orientation events (April 9 and April 16) for admitted students.

All-Access Orientation is an event that is exclusively for students who have already been accepted, allowing them to experience life “behind the scenes” at Cedarville. Students will spend time exploring their intended major, taking a final tour, and experiencing life on campus.

When you arrive at Cedarville, you may know us only from brochures and the website. When you head home, we want Cedarville to be a place with great memories and exciting possibilities. We think you'll want to return — as a Cedarville parent! Schedule your visit!

Please note: Appropriate COVID-19 protocols will be in place for all campus visits.
