Celebrating Transformed Lives at Commencement

Tuesday, May 4, 2021

Group of male and female graduates walking on sidewalkThis past weekend, Cedarville University celebrated the graduation of 892 new alumni, including those earning both undergraduate and graduate degrees.

More than just a number, these 892 students represent lives that were transformed by their time at Cedarville. Students who grew closer in their walk with the Lord from intentional mentoring, daily chapels, and biblical integration in their coursework. Students who were challenged by rigorous academics and prepared to succeed in their chosen field.

For those of you with graduating seniors, congratulations on this achievement! Like you, we can't believe how fast these last four years have gone! We will be praying with you as your son or daughter follows God's call in the next phase of their life.
