Commencement Celebrates Transformed Lives

May 10, 2017

Graduates walking inCedarville University recently graduated its largest class ever, with 796 students earning undergraduate and graduate degrees on Saturday, May 6.

That’s 796 students whose lives 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.

Be encouraged that your student, too, will experience amazing transformation at Cedarville, and you’ll be surprised at how fast the next four years will go! We will be praying for you and your student as you prepare for the transition to college life.

P.S. Watch this video featuring a few of our 2017 graduates sharing their favorite Cedarville memories and looking forward to what God has for them in the future:

Parents Measure ROI for a Cedarville Education

April 7, 2017

Diploma on pile of moneyAs 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 postgraduation final destination survey, 97% of Cedarville's class of 2016 reported being employed or in graduate school during that time period. This is not a one-year anomoly: Cedarville's three-year average is also 97%!

These placement results are 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. 

In today's post, you'll read a Q&A with parents and learn what they are saying about their student's experience at Cedarville.


P.S. If your student has been accepted to Cedarville for fall 2017, be sure to submit your $250 reservation deposit by May 1 to ensure a place in the incoming class.

Growing in a Local Church

April 3, 2017

Church

Cedarville University is privileged to care for the growth of some of the best university-aged students on our planet — including your son or daughter. 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. The top 10 churches (based on number of Cedarville students who attend) are:

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!
