Transformational Gift to Cedarville

October 15, 2020

At Cedarville University, we have been blessed by generous supporters who believe in our mission to transform lives through academic excellence and intentional discipleship. These faithful donors come alongside us in this mission, providing scholarships for students who may otherwise not be able to attend and funds that allow us to continue to improve our programs and facilities.

In his annual State of the University address on October 2, our President, Dr. Thomas White, announced an anonymous gift that will help us continue to transform lives for years to come. In today's Parent Prep post, you can watch the exciting announcement of this transformational gift and rejoice with us for the faithful men and women who continue to invest in Cedarville University.

Celebrating Record Enrollment, God's Working in Students' Lives!

September 8, 2020

The 2020–21 academic year is off to a great start! More than 1,000 freshmen and transfer students participated in Getting Started Weekend August 14–16, kicking off the academic year and their Cedarville experience (with plenty of COVID protocols in place!). Cedarville now has 4,550 undergraduate, graduate, and College Now (high school dual enrollment) students — our largest enrollment ever. Even in the middle of a pandemic, God has blessed us with record enrollment.

As with every year, Cedarville started the semester with the Fall Bible Conference. This year we welcomed Nathan Lino, Senior Pastor of Northeast Houston Baptist Church, as the conference speaker. Lino spoke from the Beatitudes in Matthew 5, challenging our students to live their lives for Jesus Christ. God is already working in our students' lives, with many making decisions for Christ during the conference! What a great way to start the year! (To watch any of the conference sessions — all held outdoors, physically distanced and masks on — visit our chapel archive.)

Giving students the opportunity to sit under the teaching of nationally recognized Bible speakers, as well as challenging them with highly regarded academic programs, sets Cedarville University apart! As you guide your student through the college search process, discuss the importance of higher education with a biblical worldview and how it can impact them. Visit us to see the difference a rigorous academic program delivered in an authentic Christian community can make.
