As an incoming freshman, my experience at Cedarville is somewhat limited.
However, 100% of the experiences that I have had have been great. I took multiple courses at Cedarville as a high school senior which have helped to prepare me for college level academics; as a life long homeschooler this was invaluable. The courses were challenging and interesting and the professors were available and helpful. During orientations that I've attended, the welcome that I have received from staff and students has been amazing. I can't wait to live here full time, to grow as a Christian and to become the Doctor that I want to be and to help others as they begin their Cedarville journey. Thanks Cedarville!
Review Cedarville University
I recently went to All Access, which is an event where accepted students can meet incoming freshman as well as current students, professors, and other staff members. I had an incredible experience. Every time I visit the campus, it is always well taken care of, the faculty is always so welcoming, and the community there is just overwhelmingly positive and has an amazing influence on anyone visiting. The only downside I have found is the cost, but if you can afford it, or apply for scholarships, it is definitely worth the investment! I hope that scholarships come through for me because this is my dream school and I feel as though I am called to attend here!
I love Cedarville! Immediately during getting started weekend my family was approached by a student. We just talked, and I got valuable info and a great new friend. It was one of many overwhelming, welcoming feelings on the campus that week. The unit mates in my dorm, Printy, are fantastic! Yes the rooms are small, but in such tight quarters the relationships one builds become very strong. I love my acadeic advisor. Not only is she honest about my options and what courses make the most sense for my major, but she is compassionate to my situation and willing to pray with me and give life advice as well. The professors are awesome and a majority of them are extremely helpful during office hours, and graciously willing to explain any subject or topic you're struggling with. Chapels are refreshing to my mind and spirit, especially with my hectic schedule. As a minority on campus, it's been fantastic to have MISO (Multicultural International Students Org) exist and I love the opportunity to be around other interesting and culturally different students on a campus that is predominately one ethnicity. One Voice has been fun to be a participate in and I appreciate that you only need to love worshipping your Lord and Savior. Oh, and Campus Christmas is the icing on the cake. It's literally magical! Overall, from Cedarvile's campus to its downtown, the sense of community, security, and Christ's love permeates through everything and everyone. Yep... I'm in love with my school! :D
