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.

Why Do Alumni Send Their Students to Cedarville?

April 22, 2019

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 freshman 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 2019, 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!
