Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

Christian. All other schools I considred where state schools or non-religious private schools. And it was in Ohio (horrid state).

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Carefully weigh the cost. A great education is imporant, but being a slave to your student loans is not worth the high price for a private school education. There is no shame in a state school education. Also- don't go to a school just because your parents did. You are not your parents, and what you want and what the school offer may not be the same thing.

What's unique about your campus?

With everyone comeing from the same religious background, you didn't have to explain certian things, but at the same time people came from different life backgrounds so we didn't all look at things the same way.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Apply to a bunch of different schools. Don't expect any one thing going into your college education. You'll learn a lot, and some of it will be from books, wherever you go. The school itself is only part of the equation. 90% of your experience is what you bring to the table. Be willing to get out there and try new things. Don't go crazy; but don't stay in your dorm and do nothing. Get involved in a research study, intramural sports - do something. Studies aren't the half of what you'll learn at college.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

It's very close minded. We argue about stupid things and don't deal with the right ones.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A conservative Christian who wants to continue with that curriculum.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

College is a big deal, there is no denying that. But when it comes to choosing the right college, it sometimes just happens. There are hundreds of colleges out there, and if you lose your cool or start worrying that there is only one right answer for you, only one college that will be good for you, then you are fighting a losing battle. Instead, approach college like one of those "Choose Your Own Adventure" books that led to different endings. You don't know the ending with whichever choice you make, but whichever adventure looks most appealing to you is likely a good choice. When it comes to college, the only wrong choice is setting aside your dreams because of the obstacles before you. If you have dreams and aspirations, chase them, make them realities. When when you get to college, don't take as many classes as you can and still pass. You need to leave yourself time to process and evaluate. Don't burn yourself out so you can finish early. Leave time to enjoy life around you, and remain mentally intact so you can finish as a healthy and marketable individual.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

Don't come to school expecting it will be perfect--it's not. But it is a place of growth and learning, and the school wants us to do a lot of both, and will encourage us toward our future goals.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

This is a Christian University. If you are not a Christian, you shouldn't come here.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I can tell you how to find te perfect school easily. First, find something you love to do and find a school that offers it as a degree. Second, look for a school that feels like home the first time you visit it. After all, You'll be there for four or more years. Third, Never stop making friends. That will make it even more enjoyable. Finaly, realize you're going to have hard time ocasionally. When they happen, its not the end of the world, simply pick yourself back up and keep going knowing that things will get better in time. Don't quit in those times or you'll never know what you missed out on. In short, live looking foward with the will to over come what ever comes you way. Then, not only will you get the most out of your college, but also the most out of life!

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

I personaly would like it if Cedarville University were in a warmer enviornment, because it gets down to the teens or lower in the winter.

Look at as many schools as you can so that you can get a feel for what is out there. Make sure and visit each campus overnight and get a real idea what it is like.

I wish I had known that it would cost so much and that i would go in such great debt to go here.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

When looking at a college, try to talk to some recent alumni or even seniors at the college. They will tell you how it really is at the school. Also, try to visit the campus so you can feel what the atmosphere is like, but make sure the school isn't just trying to put on a show for you. Lastly, see what kind of extracurricular activities the school has. That way you will be able to see if the school has some life, and you won't be bored out of your mind on the weekends. Overall, make sure you look at every aspect of the school not just if they have your major.

What's unique about your campus?

I really appreciate how open my school is. You never feel like you are out of place. Everyone is just really open with each other. Also, our school has chapel everyday which is a huge uplifting part of the day. The university brings in all kinds of speakers some are widely known, and others are just local pastors. Another thing I love about our school is that they are so outward focused especially on getting involved with the surrounding communities. I think lastly I love how personal our president is. We can email him and he will promptly respond.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

I think maybe the only frustrating thing about my school is how tough it can be. You sometimes feel like you can't get ahead, and that you are always lagging behind. It's a very tough school especially the nursing field.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

it is not hard to find the right college. find one that has the major you are interested in but also has others to choose from just in case you change your mind. college is also fun no matter where you go, but remeber it is what you make it. just have fun when you go, don't stress about grades but also don't be a slacker. do the work that needs to be done but remeber to have fun to.

What's unique about your campus?

the best thing about cedarville is that God is the center of everything we do. also the workout facilities with many activities to do including raquet ball and a climbing wall.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Cedarville is well known for having high quality education that doesn't waver on its Christian Standards. It's known for its friendly students and its giving back to the surrounding community. Basically, it's known to be a Christian University that is true to the bible, and excellent in its committment to academics.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Choosing a college is a huge decision in life and I don't think there is any college that is perfect for everyone. When making a decision on a college its important that they have the program that you want to do, and that it has a quality education. However, college is more than an education it's an experience that transitions you from a child to an adult, from your parents making your decisions to you making your decisions. This makes it crucial to find a school that will help you get ahead not just in education but in life. Look for a school that fits your personality, what school will help you grow up? I'm not talking about what school has the biggest parties, but what school has the facilities that will aid you in making real friends, and real life decisions? Do you need a small school that specializes in one area that will allow you to fit in and focus? Or, are you a person that needs a big school with lots going on that will allow you to really try new things and experiences? These are crucial questions to answer that often get overlooked.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

There really isn't anything that bothers me about Cedarville. I think the biggest things I would change would be shorter winters, and maybe a few less cornfields surrounding us.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Picking the right college is a huge deal because it will impact one's life forever. It is important to pick a school that not only has a good academic program for one's anticipated major, but also a good career services department to assist with the process of job hunting upon graduation. Even more important than this, however, is the values of the school. Pick a school that has beliefs and values that are similar to your own. Beliefs and values infiltrate every aspect of student life from social circles to the classroom. Cedarville, for example, places a lot of value upon reaching out to the surrounding community and distant countries in the world. This has strengthened an already strong passion for ministry and missions, and broadended my outlook on many things. As an RA here on campus, I have gotten to interact with countless students here and it has been an enormous blessing. Although academics are extremely important, friendships and networking are the heartbeat of college life. The friendships I have built here are going to last for a lifetime and beyond. Stay on top of academics, but never neglect your friends and social life.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

There wasn't much I didn't know about Cedarville when I came here because my two older brothers preceded me. I was well informed about the classes, dorm life, and values. Thanks to the many good things I did know about Cedarville, I wanted to come here. There have been no unpleasant surprises.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

I brag most about the student body and the values of the school. The student body is more friendly than any other school I have ever visited, and I think that it a huge deal. Also, I love bragging on my school's values. Cedarville encourages students to grow and achieve greatness not only in academics, but also in spiritual maturity. Through good Bible classes and teaching, scudents can face the tough questions in life and figure things out for themselces. The school is also very "outward focused," emphasizing outreach to other countries in need.
