    Cedarville University is a wonderful school, with teachers who care about the students and an exceptional amount of distinguished graduates. It's a beautiful campus in a small town and really close to amazing hiking trails! ...Continue reading

    I chose to attend Cedarville instead of multiple other large state schools. They offer a lot to students both socially and academically. You will graduate Cedarville feeling prepared for all walks of live. Great teachers, good food, nice housing, amazing people! ...Continue reading

    Do not consider going to this school if you want a college experience. There is no town, nothing around but cornfields, and an overbearing amount of rules. There is only one dining hall that's open only a couple hours a day, and food is disgusting. Dorms even have curfews. Internet doesn't work. There is barely any student life activity. So boring. The bubble is real. ...Continue reading

    It's a wonderful place with a positive atmosphere and demanding academics. Hands down. Everybody cares about every one else. You form personal relationships with your advisors and professors- many will make the effort to know you by name. The students are so friendly as well- super easy to make new friends. If I had to make the decision over, I wouldn't change a thing. ...Continue reading

    Lots of rules and high expectations but overall there are plenty of opportunities given to be involved. There's a really cool coffee shop just a half mile down the street that I really like, but that's about it. Cedarville has outstanding academics and a great reputation, but that certainly comes with a price $$$ a little too pricy in my opinion ) However, the cafeteria could definitely be better, and I always have trouble connecting with the internet. ...Continue reading

    Cedarville has amazing professors with high standards. People here talk about breaking the bubble. It's true. There's a bubble, but I certainly don't see many people trying to break it.

    On this campus you are seen as a person made in the image of God first. If you are interested in a Christ centered education this you need to look into Cedarville. The small town feel is great for some but there are also other larger towns close. If there is any career you are looking to go into, most likely Cedarville can help you get there. The facilities are top-notch There are tons of professors that care deeply about you, your learning experience, and your spiritual walk. There are people of all levels of spiritual sensitivity here -- there are those whom could care less, but if you look, there are those with a deep hunger to grow as well. I love CU. ...Continue reading

    Cedarville is a great school academically, however it is located in the middle of cornfields and you have to drive a bit to get anywhere. Also, the campus does not offer many activities, so you have to get creative. Professors really care about you and job placement after graduation is our of this world. ...Continue reading

    This is my first semester and my last semester here. It is hard to make friends here if you don't believe in a lot of the beliefs here or apart of club or team.

    BEAUTIFUL campus. It's a pretty tight-knit community aka lots of besties, no parties. Activities are fun but not overwhelming, professors are incredible, and it's fairly easy to land a job after. If you are not super-conservative, or have any mental health issues, AVOID! ...Continue reading

    Would recommend this school to anyone. The students, faculty, staff, food service, disability office, library staff, financial aid advisers and even the president himself are there to support you. One of the finest qualities (second to spiritual focus) is the financial, academic, personal, and spiritual support. ...Continue reading

    I graduated in 2007 and revisited the campus recently. I do not recommend Cedarville because a degree holds no name-power in any professional realm except conservative Christian industry. There is no diversity in teaching, but most students share the worldview so it is not apparent. Broaden your mind and gain a diverse experience somewhere else. Avoid this place like the plague. ...Continue reading

They made it affordable through scholarships and the acdemics here are rigorous yet doable No, it doesn't have a ton of diversity in ideas, but it's excellent at what it is and teaches diverse ideasyou are not uninformed.

    Going to Cedarville was the best decision I've ever made! This is actually a good thing though, as you come out of school with much more pride about your education than you would otherwise. Really a great school. Oh, also there is really nothing to do other than hang out. The quality of education is excellent. It's small enough to feel like a family, but large enough to keep it from feeling like high school. ...Continue reading
