Colleges on CUO’s list were analyzed for continuity of campus, architectural style, signature buildings and natural setting. In its rankings, CUO praised Cedarville’s large rural campus and modern architectural style. It also notes Cedar Lake as the focal point of the campus.
Cedarville has a standard of excellence that extends far beyond the classroom. It has a dedicated physical plant department that consists of grounds, athletic fields, maintenance, mechanical and custodial teams that work together to keep the campus maintained and beautiful.
“When people walk on campus and see that it is well maintained, they can believe the education is as excellent as Cedarville proclaims,” said Rod Johnson, vice president of operations. “If we couldn’t even keep our grass mowed, how could we deliver high-quality education?”
Cedarville’s grounds are mowed, fertilized and well-maintained. All the buildings exhibit a uniform architectural style featuring signature red brick, and most parking lots are on the outer edge of campus to prevent cars from driving through the center.
