Just Sayin’ – How A Digital Detox Changed My Summer

By Alex Hentschel That’s it,” I said resolutely, holding down my apps until they trembled with the fear of being deleted. “I’m done.” My dad only looked at me in a “sure, if you say so” way, but I did it — on the car ride back from my freshman year, I got rid of all of my social media and time-wasting apps.

Alex & Mojade

SGA President and Vice President by Naomi Harward It’s no surprise that Alex and Mojade won the hearts (and votes) of so many during SGA elections last year. These two are some of the friendliest, most down-to-earth people you will meet on campus.

Last year, the announcement officially came that Cedarville was going to tear Faith down before the start of the 2017-18 school year. This led to numerous puns about ...

Stinger’s Renovation

by Callahan Jones The Hive, Cedarville University’s full-service snack shop, is no longer.

The room had ...

Many ...

Cedarville Slang Lexicon

by Alexandria Hentschel The first week of freshman year is an adjustment in so many ways — you say goodbye to your family, live on your own for the first time, and meet your new best friends. You become responsible for feeding yourself and making it on time to your own appointments. However, a lot of freshmen (myself included) have difficulty adjusting to the various jargon that make Cedarville home. Moving into college comes with enough changes without having to learn an entire new ...

Facebook Groups of Cedarville
