Next Webinar: Keys for Career Exploration

November 4, 2016

Mark your calendar for Monday, November 14, at 8 p.m. EST and plan to join us for our next FREE webinar — “Keys for Career Exploration.”

Statistics tell us that 50–60% of college students will change their major at least once, and 40% get to graduation day and regret their choice of study. And consider this: 65–85% of American adults say they dislike their job. 

So how do you help your student choose the right major? How can you prevent your son or daughter from becoming another statistic? “Keys for Career Exploration” will introduce you to what you need to know as you help your student with this all-important decision.

Cedarville University’s Director of Career Services and Certified Professional Career Coach Jeff Reep will discuss how students can engage in career exploration early and often. Without it, college freshmen choose majors based on vague ideas of future lifestyle, but without true knowledge of their options or of the ways God has equipped them to serve His purposes. A college education is a significant investment, and selecting a major is an important choice. This practical webinar will help you ask the right questions and provide wise counsel to your student.

Register today, and join the conversation on Monday, November 14, at 8 p.m.!

A Testimony of a Life Transformed

August 31, 2016

At Cedarville University, we talk about the approximately 1,000 days students spend on our campus. But for us, it’s much more than just a slogan: It’s 1,000 days of intentionally shaping students to honor God with their lives — in their vocations, in their families, and in their communities.

For one recent graduate, his 1,000 days led him all the way to Washington, D.C., where he is prepared to serve and make a difference in the lives of the people around him.

Following a successful internship with the office of a Congressman from Virginia, 2016 graduate Grant English recently accepted a full-time staff position with Ohio’s eighth district in the U.S. House of Representatives. When asked why he wanted to work in Washington, D.C., Grant responded with, “Where else can I make a bigger difference in our society than starting with our government?” Cedarville instilled in him a desire to make a profound impact on his world and equipped him to be a servant-leader to the glory of God.

His parents, Evan and Layne English, Cedarville graduates themselves, are grateful for the education their son received and are excited for Grant’s future. “His last four years at Cedarville truly refined him into the man he is today,” explained Evan. “We feel incredibly blessed that God has provided this opportunity for him.”

As you work through the college decision with your student, consider the life-transforming education at Cedarville University!


More than 1,000 students have already applied for Fall 2017! Encourage your student to apply by November 1, and we will waive the $30 application fee.

Measuring Cedarville's ROI (Return on Investment)

April 27, 2016

As high school seniors and their parents sit down to finalize a college decision before the May 1 deadline, one topic is nearly always part of the discussion: cost.

While many universities — including Cedarville — are taking intentional steps to make a college education more affordable, parents are increasingly looking at job placement rates in order to weigh an institution’s benefits against its costs in an effort to decide whether or not a considerable investment is worthwhile.

Cedarville's placement rates continue to be impressive. In a six-month post-graduation final destination survey, 97.2% of Cedarville's class of 2015 reported being employed or in graduate school during that time period. That's well above the national averages reported by the National Association of Colleges and Employers, which has reported an average of 88% over the last five years.

But don't just take our word for it. Read today's post and you'll hear what parents are saying about their children's experience at Cedarville, and why they think Cedarville is worth the investment.


P.S. If your student has been accepted to Cedarville for fall 2016, be sure to submit your $250 reservation deposit by May 1 to ensure a place in the incoming class.
