I love Cedarville! Immediately during getting started weekend my family was approached by a student. We just talked, and I got valuable info and a great new friend. It was one of many overwhelming, welcoming feelings on the campus that week. The unit mates in my dorm, Printy, are fantastic! Yes the rooms are small, but in such tight quarters the relationships one builds become very strong. I love my acadeic advisor. Not only is she honest about my options and what courses make the most sense for my major, but she is compassionate to my situation and willing to pray with me and give life advice as well. The professors are awesome and a majority of them are extremely helpful during office hours, and graciously willing to explain any subject or topic you're struggling with. Chapels are refreshing to my mind and spirit, especially with my hectic schedule. As a minority on campus, it's been fantastic to have MISO (Multicultural International Students Org) exist and I love the opportunity to be around other interesting and culturally different students on a campus that is predominately one ethnicity. One Voice has been fun to be a participate in and I appreciate that you only need to love worshipping your Lord and Savior. Oh, and Campus Christmas is the icing on the cake. It's literally magical! Overall, from Cedarvile's campus to its downtown, the sense of community, security, and Christ's love permeates through everything and everyone. Yep... I'm in love with my school! :D

I love Cedarville University! It is an amazing environment where you can grow both academically and spiritually. The faculty truly care about each student and are willing to schedule time to meet. The students are also very friendly and the dorms allow you to make many new friends. In my experience Cedarville prepares you to enter the working world and become successful. However, my favorite part about Cedarville is Chapel every weekday at 10. It is an amazing time of worship and learning. I am so grateful that I have been able to be a part of the Cedarville community for the past four years!

I live in Printy dorm which is a.k.a. "the freshman all girls dorm." I am a freshman this year and chose Printy because I really wanted to be surounded by classmates my age who would be going through the freshman experience with me at the same time. Also I love the community at Printy. The girls become like family. The rooms are very small but at least you don't have to worry about cleaning the bathroom! Finding a roommate was really easy because of Cedarville's freshman facebook page where you could meet other students in your class before the school year started. I met my roommate that way and it's worked out fabulously. I would advise being honest about what kind of interests you have, how clean you are, and what your social and sleeping habits are. I love my suite mates and I love the community at Printy.
