Christian Education in the 21st Century

February 1, 2017

Murray Murdoch in chapel

Last week, Cedarville celebrated its 130th Charter Day. Students, faculty, and staff were blessed to hear from Dr. Murray Murdoch, Senior Professor of History, as he spoke in the annual Charter Day chapel.

Murdoch discussed the challenges facing higher education and, drawing from his 50-plus years at Cedarville, explained why he believes true education can only happen in Christian education. As he shared, the only hope for the problems in our world is the message found in the Gospel. For 130 years, Cedarville has boldly upheld the Word of God with vigor and without apology, and we will always continue to do so.

View today's post to watch Dr. Murdoch’s Charter Day presentation and be encouraged about the bold, distinctly Christian education your student will experience at Cedarville University.

What Happens When Christian Kids Go to Secular Colleges?

January 23, 2017

Student carrying boxYour student is in the middle of making one of the most important decisions of his or her life – where to attend college. You may be weighing many issues: cost, location, academic programs. But perhaps the greatest factor you need to consider is this: How will this institution affect my student’s spiritual walk? 

Dr. Steve Henderson, founder and president of Christian Consulting for Colleges and Ministries, has done extensive research on what happens to Christian students when they attend secular universities. In an article published on the online Christian College Guide website, Henderson cautions parents about what students will face in a secular university classroom and presents his research findings about the impact on students' faith. Having faced this issue in his own family, he encourages parents to consider the true cost of having a student attend a secular school, and not just the price.

With daily chapel, a required Bible minor built into every academic program, biblical integration in all courses, and intentional discipleship opportunities, your student’s faith will be strengthened at Cedarville. We are committed to equipping students to use their vocation to impact the world for Christ, wherever He leads.

How the Graduation Rate of a College Can Save You Money

January 9, 2017

Grad cap with money

We all know students who started their four-year college journey… six years ago. Whether they are struggling to pass classes, basking in the learning experience, or simply switching their major too many times, their college education can quickly acquire an even larger price tag when eight semesters turn into 12.

One of the best ways a university can save you money is to help your student graduate on time. Consider the additional costs if students take five or more years to finish. Consider the cost if they never complete their educational goals!

At Cedarville, we make it a priority to help students graduate on time, saving them money but more importantly, allowing them to begin using their career to make an impact for Christ sooner.
