Party Scene: If you want parties with substances of any kind... Look elsewhere. If you know how to have an amazing time without drugs or sex than you will find yourself in great company. Cedarville students know how to have a great time!!!

Scholarships: They really took a personal approach in explaining my offers. My family makes too much for need based awards but Cedarville was able to provide generous awards due to my academic performance and test results. It was far less worrisome than I thought it would be.

Campus Food: Lots of options. You decide if you eat healthy or not because the options ARE there.

Campus Housing: Residence life is always doing something! I'll be living in Printy as a freshman this year and even though it's tight it's vibrant and lends itself to community!

Academics: It's mediocre. Nothing really sticks out. We tend to go off topic a lot and discuss the Bible, even in classes like Biology where it is irrelevant.

Academics: Professors do not really care about the actual class. We end up praying and talking about God for the most of it, which again proves how Christian schools lack academic integrity.

Campus Quality: There is no swimming pool. The weight room is small and almost impossible to find an open space to work out in. There is barely any green space. Due to the fact there is an enormous lake in the middle of the campus making walking to class long and tedious. No campus activities worth going to.

Overall Experience: Cedarville University: a place middle class white kids come to study from all over America to make sure they grow in their faith because it was probably too weak to withstand actual resistance from a public university or liberal arts college. With mediocre proffessors and judmental students. You'll for sure feel right at home as you would in a church. As long as you follow the strict, overbearing rules set before you to follow. You will get along just fine!

Overall Experience: I've heard bad things from upper classmen

1 College Freshman

Party Scene: No one parties. No one drinks or does drugs. It is impossible to do anything remotely close to partying anywhere near campus.

Majors: Getting into Cedarville is like getting in to High School. You do not need that great of an academic record to get in. What they do care about is your pastoral reccomendation. They do not even bother asking for an academic reccomendation to get accepted. Who needs that when you have JEZUS! As long as your Christian and have a pastor back that up, you can get accepeted. You don't even need to write an essay.

Diversity: Four words. It is a joke. Everyone talking about how great the diversification at Cedarville is and they lie. Everyone is a W.A.S.P. It stands for White Anglo-Saxon Protestant. I can count the people that aret any of those three things on one hand.

Local Area: There is literally nothing to do on campus or off it for starters. Have to drive almost an hour to get to any place decent.

Overall Experience: I would not choose this school again. Parents forced me to go here. Said they were worried about my walk with God. This school enforces being a Christian more than exceeding in academics. I have not enjoyed this year at all. Crossing my fingers, they will let me transfer.

Health & Safety: Even though I feel safe on campus, the amount of events that get shoved underneath the rug, by secretly expelling students and fear of expulsion if we ever talk to the media about an event that was "leaked".

Greek Life: They are not allowed on campus. Everyone is fairly hostile to the idea.

1 College Freshman

Athletics: No, football team. No swimming team. No, rugby team. The other teams aren't even worth playing for because the budget for them is pathetic.

Off-Campus Housing: Next to impossible to get approved for off-campus housing. You might actually try to drink and have sex!!

Off-Campus Dining: No options what so ever. Can't even go for a Taco Bell run in the middle of the night, much less get anything in the middle of the night.

Administration: Going here is literally worse than living at home during high school. They are actually worse and more strict than my parents were. So much for this "freedom" I was told so much about.

Campus Food: Same food every day. We pay thousands of dollars in board and they supply us with off brand fruit loops? Seriously?

Campus Housing: Campus dorms are very small. No central air. Bathrooms are always full due to the poor ratio of students and showers/stalls. Beds are wooden, which means lofting your bed is out of the question and ends up taking more space in the room than necessary.

Off-Campus Dining: There isn't a very large variety of off-campus dining opportunities. However, the ones that are present are pretty good. Of course, they are also more expensive than the cafeteria, so most of the people who go, do so on weekends.

4 College Freshman

Administration: Although there are some who are upset with the administration, the staff are really mature and helpful. I think that they can feel the pulse of the student body pretty well, while also staying within the appropriate boundaries of a Christian college.
