With a population of nearly 4,000, the town of Cedarville, Ohio, barely matches the 3,000 or so young scholars of Cedarville University, who return each year to student housing in town. Founded in 1887 by the Presbyterian church, the institution has been a local landmark in town for more than 120 years, and has helped develop the local culture. Today, the school is an independent Baptist university, and adheres to the evangelical tradition in many aspects of student living. Though the religious affiliations of Cedarville University are tantamount to its instruction, students move to a university apartment with a wide variety of academic and career goals.
Students at Cedarville University can pursue their choice of eight undergraduate degrees in 111 academic programs, which span the liberal arts, professional sciences and theological studies, including a minor in Biblical studies, which is required for all students. Recently, the university began offering graduate degrees in education and pharmacy, and began a Master of Science in Nursing program in the fall of 2010.
A main advantage of renting off campus housing is the option to interact closely with the community of Cedarville as well as the university's student body. Each Labor Day, the town holds CedarFest, which includes a parade, pancake breakfast, evening fireworks and lots of local food.
