A Bold, Biblical Approach to Geology

Tuesday, November 30, 2021

Rock formationsAt Cedarville, we approach the study of geology differently from most universities – even ones that are identified as "Christian." As with every program we offer, our geology program boldly acknowledges the Bible as the ultimate framework for research and study, without sacrificing academic excellence. We are unashamed to adhere to a literal, six-day account of creation and recognize God as the Creator of all life. We are honored to be an invited exhibitor at Answers in Genesis’ annual college expo.

Regularly, Dr. John Whitmore, Professor of Geology, leads a group of students on a trip to the Grand Canyon, where they examine geological evidence that supports the biblical account of Creation and Noah's Flood. Read today's post to watch a video to get a taste of this incredible trip.

This bold, biblically integrated education is exactly what your student will experience at Cedarville University in every course, in every major. We invite you to visit campus and see for yourself!

Announcing Increased Scholarships for Fall 2022 Freshmen!

Tuesday, November 9, 2021

At Cedarville University, we are doing everything we can to make our academically excellent, Christ-focused education affordable for families. We recently announced increased scholarships for incoming freshmen for fall 2022, and we wanted to be sure you were among the first to hear the news.

The President's Scholar Award ranges from $10,000 to $20,000, based on high school academic credentials. Due to limited availability of standardized testing during the COVID-19 pandemic, Cedarville will not require an ACT, SAT, or CLT test score as a requirement for scholarship consideration (or for admission) for students entering any term through spring 2023.

The President's Scholar Award is renewable for all four years assuming the academic renewal criteria are met each year. These generous scholarships can be combined with other Cedarville or outside scholarships, as well as need-based aid.

A Cedarville education is one of the best investments your student will ever make, and we are serious about making it affordable for your family.


P.S. If your student has not yet applied for admission, now is the time! It is FREE to apply through November 15, and all applicants who meet that deadline will also receive a Cedarville Yellow Jackets T-shirt.
