In honor of Mother's Day yesterday, we thought we'd share what some of our moms have to say about their student's Cedarville experience. We've found that for Cedarville students, the #1 influencer of their college decision is MOM!
We asked a few of our very important moms what they appreciate most about Cedarville and the impact this place has had on their son or daughter. We think you'll be encouraged by the answers they shared in this short video — including introductory comments from best-selling author, founder of Pure Freedom Ministries, and Cedarville alumna and parent Dannah Gresh.

If you’re a homeschooling parent, you probably have specific concerns when considering where to send your son or daughter to college. Our president, Dr. Thomas White, understands. He's a homeschooling dad.
Dr. White recorded a video in which he highlights what makes Cedarville University homeschool-friendly. Watch the video and you’ll discover how at Cedarville, your student will join many other homeschool students on a vibrant Christian campus. He or she will be challenged with rigorous academics and encouraged through daily chapel, Bible minor courses, and intentional discipleship to grow deeper in their faith.

Cedarville University is privileged to care for the spiritual growth of some of the best university-aged students on our planet. We take this charge very seriously.
One of the elements in the spiritual growth dynamic here at Cedarville is seeing to it, as best we are able, that each student connects with a local church. The years of their academic training could leave them separated from any type of effective fellowship with the body of Christ, except for what takes place within the boundaries of our campus. Chapel is exciting and distinctive to a Cedarville education, but it does not take the place of the local church.
We are blessed to have many great churches in the greater Miami Valley region. Here are some of our students' favorites:
- Apex Community Church, Dayton
- Calvary Baptist Church, Xenia
- Cornerstone Bible Church, Xenia
- Dayton Avenue Baptist Church, Xenia
- Emmanuel Baptist Church, Xenia
- Fairhaven Church, Dayton
- Grace Baptist Church, Cedarville
- Northside Baptist Church, Springfield
- Shawnee Hills Baptist Church, Jamestown
- Southgate Baptist Church, Springfield
We are blessed with many more churches as well. We will continue to impress the importance of the local church upon our students, with the goal of seeing them grow spiritually while they attend Cedarville and then watching them naturally step right into a solid local church wherever they land in the years ahead. To God be the glory!
P.S. Cedarville University announced on Friday, March 20, that we will continue with online delivery through the end of the spring term. We encourage you to track with Cedarville's COVID-19 related updates. Not only will you be able to access resources and information, but also we think you will gain additional perspective about the heart of this place and the outstanding, Spirit-empowered leadership of our president, Thomas White.
