I thoroughly enjoy my time at Cedarville University, and I believe it really is a fit for me, however, I would need to see a more open-minded approach to other worldviews before giving Cedarville a five-star rating.

Last year was my first year on campus and overall it was a fantastic experience. I enjoyed meeting a ton of friendly people, being a part of the sports, attending chapel everyday, and most importantly learning from the best teachers around. From the seniors down to the new freshman, almost everyone is welcoming and helpful. The sports are important but the relationship with God and your education comes first always. My school is unique because it is Christ-centered in all aspects of campus, allowing your faith to grow no matter what you are doing.

Students and faculty are very kind and are always happy to see you. The course material is rigorous; I am being challenged in order to be well-versed in my field.
