rotcU.S. News & World Report recently ranked Cedarville University as the best regional college in the Midwest for military veterans and active-duty service members.

Cedarville ranked in the top 7% of the 172 colleges and universities in the Midwest.

“The biggest benefit for veterans at Cedarville, besides the fact that it has a strong Christian environment, is the fact that it has experienced people handling veteran concerns on a daily basis,” explained Keegan D'Alfonso, U.S. Marine Corps veteran and 2019 Cedarville graduate.

“We are very thankful for our men and women who serve, or have served, in the U.S. Armed Services,” said Fran Campbell, registrar at Cedarville University. “We have made it our goal to smooth the transition for military personnel from military life to college life, and we are committed to doing everything in our power to help them succeed.”
