Graduation Celebrates Transformed Lives

Tuesday, May 4, 2021

smiling graduatesThis 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. Students who were in the same place as your student just four years ago, and are now ready to go out into the world and make a difference for Christ.

Be encouraged that your student, too, will experience amazing transformation at Cedarville, and you’ll be surprised at how fast the next four years will go! We will be praying for you and your student as you prepare for the transition to college life.
