Tips for a Smooth College Drop-Off

Thursday, August 18, 2022

Students moving into dormFrom one parent to another … dropping your child off at college is hard (especially if it’s your first time!). As you prepare to bring your student to Cedarville to begin his or her college career, please be assured of two things:

  • Your son or daughter rests securely in God’s hand. He has great plans for them (Jer. 29:11) and will never leave them alone (Heb. 13:5).
  • Cedarville University will do everything we can to love and support your child — personally, academically, and spiritually. We are so honored that you have entrusted your child to us, and we take that responsibility very seriously.

Read today's post for tips for a successful drop-off. Don't worry, Mom and Dad, you've got this!

Jeff Beste
Director of Strategic Relations (and a Cedarville dad!)

P.S. When you come to campus in a few days, be sure to stop by the Parent Zone outside the chapel. We would love to meet you and welcome you to Cedarville!

Traveling on I-70 to Campus?

Tuesday, August 9, 2022

Cedarville University's signDue to bridge construction on Rt. 72 that is causing significant traffic delays, we suggest the following alternate routes to campus:

  • From the east on I-70: exit at Hwy. 54 and come through South Charleston / Rt. 42
  • From the west on I-70: take I-75 S into Dayton, then Rt. 35/Rt. 42 into Cedarville
  • From the west, coming from Rt. 68: come into Cedarville from Xenia

None of these alternate routes would add significant time, and they may reduce stress as you bring your Yellow Jacket to campus.
