January 21, 2014

Are you feeling overwhelmed by college costs? Have you wondered how the price tag on your student's education will ever be covered? 

You are not alone! The popular media has made college costs a national conversation, and the issues are real and personal for many families. Unfortunately, the sound bites on the evening news are unable to address the myriad of complex issues that have brought us to this point.

Today's Parent Prep post includes cost increase data from a recent MSNBC article and shares how Cedarville University fits into the conversation.

How Knowing a College's Graduation Rate Can Save You Money

January 14, 2014

[Photo of Graduation Cap]We all know people who started their four-year college journey….six years ago. Whether students 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 turns into twelve.

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!

Today's post addresses the topic of graduation rates, which are rarely associated with college costs but have a huge impact on the total bill!

Get Real about a Casual Sex Culture

December 30, 2013

Dialogue on SexualityRemember when “sex” was a word you were embarrassed to say out loud?  Well, what was once private has gone aggressively in-your-face public.

When the Church believes it is powerless against this Goliath, it is. When we shy away from dialogue because this topic makes us uncomfortable, we yield the floor to a message that exults in its shamelessness. In Christ, we have a compellingly restorative message of healing, hope, and humanity. Unless the Church speaks up, we reinforce to our children, teens, singles, and families what they’re hearing everywhere else:

“It’s just sex. It’s no big deal.”

Tune in to Cedarville University's Dialogue on Sexuality, as you listen to six audio-recorded sessions filled with wisdom from Cedarville faculty and Focus on the Family staff. They will challenge you to critically think about sexuality in today's culture from a Biblical perspective, in order to equip both you and your student to navigate through the sexuality jungle of our modern day society.

Happy Thanksgiving!

November 27, 2013

Thanksgiving is the perfect opportunity to say how much we appreciate you as a parent and your part in your student’s college decision process!  Research shows that parents help to shape the conversation about what is important in a student's college decision. Thank you for making "truly Christ-centered" education a priority for your student and family.

Why is choosing a Christ-centered university so important? The #1 measurable outcome of a university degree in the United States is a decline in students' faith. Higher education is not value neutral, and students are walking away from their faith in disturbing numbers.

That's why parents tell us they appreciate and invest in a Cedarville University education for their children! They have confidence that their student's faith will be encouraged and strengthened here -- whether through classes, chapel, Bible studies, or friendships. Cedarville offers a wide variety of opportunities for students to get involved and to grow spiritually. Parents also know our rigorous, nationally recognized academic programs will equip their young adult for personal and professional success.

From the Cedarville family to yours, may you experience the blessing of God's goodness and peace during this Thanksgiving season!


As you head into the holiday season, be sure to check out the Cedarville Bookstore website: yellowjacketzone.com! The site offers a large selection of Cedarville Yellow Jacket apparel, bags, jerseys, and much more! It's a great way to celebrate your future Yellow Jacket this Christmas season. Visit us online soon! 

Also, it's not to late to submit an application for admission! All students who apply in the month of November receive a FREE "Follow Your Calling" T-shirt from Cedarville University.
