Describe the students at your school.

Friendly, eager to interact within and out of class, enjoy studying together, a strong camraderie forms within the major as you progress through your years at college with a lot of private jokes arising out of the group.

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

Firstly, consider not what the dreams of the parent are, but what the dreams of the student are, and what skills they have. Everyone tends to do better and be happier throughout the college experience if they are doing and studying something they truly love. Secondly, consider what the college is offering to both of you, the parents, and the students. What is available on campus and in the surrounding area for the student? If you love the outdoors, are there parks and preserves? If shopping, are there malls or quiant downtown shopping districts? If ministry and outreaches, are there missions, shelters, etcetera, in the area you can be involved with? What support structure does the school provide for the parents? Is it easy to trust that your child will be safe and cared for? If something serious happens, will they contact you? Do they maybe have a service provided so you can send your child gift certificates for a local eatery when they've had a bad week, when you're 600 miles away? Quality of education and distance from home are considerations we all keep in mind, what I've suggested are things we might not think of.

What kind of person should attend this school?

conservative christians who are willing to learn about God, and don't mind having new ideas thrown at them to then dissect and evaluate in light of a christian worldview.

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

The first thing to realize about college is that it is not just gaining an academic base for which to enter the job market. College is a learning experience in all areas of life. It is the place where people are transformed from youth into adults. When seeking what college to attend, this must be taken into consideration. Look for good academics, but ultimately look for where you think you will grow and mature most as a human being.

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

The cost is very high, making it impossible for a lot of students to attend here and also forcing alot of students to drop out.

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

I love that we have chapel ever day and a required Bible minor. We are one of two schools in the country to require both and I think it is an awesome opportunity and makes us very unique. I also love the welcoming atmosphere here, I didn't feel that at some of the other schools. And the focus on God in everything is amazing and really sets us apart from not only secular schools but many other Christina schools as well.

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

Visiting a campus, especially when classes are in session can say a lot about the college and the students that attend there. Spending the night can give a good feel for dorm life as well. When visiting a campus connecting with a professor and learning about that particular deparment can really say a lot on where the focus is those classes. And connecting with students is a good way to keep in touch with what is going on even before attending the college if that choice is made. Prayer iskey too if one is a Christian and can really bring a peace about what decision is right. Once at the school, getting involved is a great opportunity to serve and make friends. And being yourself is always the best way to make lifelong friends. Studying hard will ensure good grades, and don't be afraid to get help when you need it, because success in the classroom will lead to lifelong success. Try picking a college that has similar beliefs as you and one the seems to be a good fit socially and academically. Remember, college is for the average person, and success is possible if you strive for it.

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

How friendly and helpful everyone is! I was nervous coming in because it was my first time away from home but this school makes it so easy to adjust, fit in, and get help, and knowing that would have relieved a lot of my nerves.

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

College is a time of change. Between the ages 18 and 22 a person undergoes some of the most life altering changes they will ever face. It?s the age that you break from your established mold and are forced to become the person you will be for the rest of your life. As such, it is imperative to choose the correct college. Even more so, it is necessary to go into this stage of life prepared to grow. College can be a time of intense learning as well as spiritual, emotional, mental, and social development. It can be a time where you find what it means to truly live in this world, or it can be a time of squandered opportunities and irresponsible choices . Your mindset is crucial in defining your experience. In addition, I would encourage a prospective student of higher education to find an establishment that offers what they are passionate about and provides a positive, nurturing campus environment. If you enter college ready to grow, if you are studying what you love, and if the faculty, staff, and students engender a positive campus atmosphere, you are poised to enter the best years of your life.

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

Not to bring so much un important stuff. The Freshmen dorms aren't the biggest. But they have an awesome community spirit and really get the new students to build solid relationships.

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

Honestly thats hard. I guess I'd say financial aid. It's pretty expensive here and I could do for some more monetary assistance, if you know what I mean.

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

Don't let finances hold you back from allowing your student or child to get a good degree. There are forms of assistance out there. Take advantage of them. Also get very invovled and if you find yourself struggling to keep up with school don't be too prideful to ask for help. You are only going to be young and in college once so make the most of it... and stay away from alcohol. It will only mess up your career and future.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A person who is serious about their education and someone who wants a biblical perspective of learning. Someone who desires to do great things and be challenged not only accademically but spiritually as well.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frusturating thing is that Cedarville is located in the middle of a corn field and that it takes 20 minutes one way to get to something small like a walmart. There isn't much to do because of the rural location.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

An exciting enviroment with strong academics however the students are what makes the school; fun, caring and striving to follow Jesus Christ in any profession.

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

No college will be perfect, there will always be problems with finachial aid, professors and even among the student body, just enjoy it! You make the most of your college experience, its ultimately up to you. :)

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

Like all schools, Cedarville has "polictical" issues when dealing with administration and students; little injustices are constantly overlooked. For example, the students were not listened to when two professors were teaching a view considered unbiblical (theology class). Although the student body took great measures to present the desire to stay conservate in its view on "truth" they were not included in the resultion of the issues (two of the student favored profs were fired). There are other similar little issues, the worst is dealing with students with LD and ADHD (that is most difficult to discuss in so few words).

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

Really, when it comes down to it - choosing the right college has very little to do with it being "right" on paper. It has everything to do with finding your niche wherever you go and finding your way to leave a positive mark on the school when you leave - for others to experience. Also, when you graduate, the piece of paper that says you did what you needed to get through is nothing compared to the experiences you'll take to start your future. So, stress little about where you're going to spend the next four years or so of your life and focus on the details once you get there. You'll do great!

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

The school is very big on community involvement and ministries - of being part of something bigger than just you and your career.

Michael
