An Ultimate Bond
Cedarville’s club ultimate Frisbee team, The Swarm, hopes to play in the regional tournament in the spring just like last season. But with only 11 players returning, this will be difficult to do.
The team graduated seven players in May 2015, which included all three captains and two other starters.
One of the new captains, senior Andrew Richard, said making it back to the regional tournament would be great, but the team has a more important long-term goal.
“Pretty much the last of the ...
Safe Spaces and Speech: A Wordless Battle
When speech is stifled, so is the very essence of America, said Wes Baker, distinguished professor of communications at Cedarville.
“Our political system is based on the whole idea that we allow all kinds of things to be said,” said Baker, who teaches media law and ethics classes. “We have a very high standard in the United States to protect speech of all kinds.”
College is a place at which free speech should flourish and all ideas able to be expressed, he said.
“That’s the ...

When choreographing an Irish dance, Lorenzini said she starts with the basics. She uses either skipping or sevens, which are the basic steps Irish dancers use to count their feet movements.
Choreographing for Ayo

James Kragel, associate professor of communications at Cedarville, said having three graduates contribute to “Woodlawn” exemplifies the mission of the broadcasting and digital media program.
Just Sayin’: Childlike Wonder
Albert Einstein is quoted as saying that there are two ways to live life: “One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”
Children are experts at the latter, and I’m jealous of them for it. The reason they live as though everything is a miracle, I think, is because of the way they view the world. Many of the things you experience as a kid, you experience for the first time.
But if you see a miracle happen often enough, it’s easy to lose sight ...

A Cross-Country Move
When it comes to breaks, students like to compare how far they have to travel. Some students drive for half an hour, while others need half a day and multiple stops at gas stations.
For two Cedarville cross country runners, sophomore Jodi Davis and freshman Cheyenne Applegate, home is over 4,000 miles away in Anchorage, Alaska. It takes 60 hours to drive there from Cedarville, and a one-way flight costs over $1,000 and takes 12 hours.
