I love how it is a Christian school that is actually challenging academics-wise. They integrate the Bible very well into non-Bible classes, and the mandatory Bible minor is a great way to learn more about God and his divine ways.
There tends to be some judgment from other students if you aren't perfect, and the rules are pretty strict compared to state schools
Cedarville University is a conservative school dedicated to spreading the good news of the Gospel and the testimony of Jesus Christ. It is a school that not only says what it believes but does it as well. There is chapel Monday through Friday at 10 am and it is such a good way to connect to fellow believers and be in unity with the body of Christ. The rest of the school makes sure students have a good social life of their students. There are different events put on by the school to ensure that students feel connected to the other students outside of the classroom or chapel whether through movie nights or concerts or different things like that. The History and Government department does a great job of making sure its students are up to date on their graduation requirements as well as prepping them for the next steps of their lives.
Sometimes it gets hard being at Cedarville because it is surrounded by cornfields. There seems to be little to do when the school is not putting on an event for the students. Lots of times, we have to drive 30 minutes to hang out somewhere. Also, when it comes to finding support for financial aid, it is hard to find someone to help you past freshman year. There is no appointed financial advisor past the first year so everything else is pretty much on your own.
A lot of the classes, at least for my major, are really interesting and challenging and have great professors. Most students are friendly and great to talk to and work with.
It was really expensive. A lot of colleges are expensive, but there are cheaper options that might be worth considering, especially if you do not have much money in scholarships. There are a lot of rules here for students to follow. They don't bother me, but they could be a problem for some people, so read up on them first.
It's such a good environment, and all of the professors are very kind and encouraging. From the minute I stepped onto the campus, I could really tell that everyone there truly cared about my relationship with God and that there was a heavy emphasis on discipleship and my relationship with Christ. It's an excellent environment-prepare to expect a lot of discipleship there!
I like the close community you have with your classmates and professors.
Some of the rules are a little intense, but you get over them quickly.
It makes you a stronger believer!
How hard the classes are.
