Born Out of the Fires of Failure
Andy Graff hadn’t written one creative sentence since editors rejected the novel he’d spent seven years writing. Two years had passed since the manuscript he’d labored over through college, grad school and beyond found a home in his dresser drawer, never to be read by anyone else.
So he sat in front of his fireplace on a Wisconsin winter night, feeding old college papers, notes and syllabi to the flames. As he went through the boxes, throwing the reminders of his college ...
Just Sayin’…On Endings
“How did it get late so soon? It’s night before it’s afternoon,” Dr. Seuss wrote. “December is here before it’s June. My goodness how the time has flewn. How did it get so late so soon?”
How did it get late so soon? How did the time go by so fast? I remember setting foot on campus in August 2012, wearing my LeBron James T-shirt. I remember walking through all the buildings, getting my picture taken for my student ID, connecting my laptop to Cedarville’s wireless network ...
After Scalia’s Death, What’s Next?
Supreme Court decisions in favor of conservative viewpoints could soon lean more liberal if Judge Merrick Garland is confirmed, said Kevin Sims, professor of political science at Cedarville.
President Barack Obama nominated Garland as a replacement for Justice Antonin Scalia after Scalia died on Feb. 13.

Running with a Purpose
For the amount of time Cedarville’s women’s 4x800-meter relay team has been running, it’s members have accomplished quite a bit.
It’s a young team. Olivia Esbenshade is the only junior, while Carsyn Koch, Carly Rose and Sarah Hoffman are all sophomores. Women’s track and field head coach Jeff Bolender said the four each bring something different to the team.
“They are all talented runners,” Bolender said. “Each of them have different strengths, but for all of them, the 800 ...

Sophomore Thrower Mariah Cruise Sets New School Record
Sophomore Mariah Cruise recently broke the Cedarville women's track and field team shot put record, but she said she does not want to be known just for her success on the field.
“I definitely want others to see me as being humble and using my talents for God,” Cruise said.
Cruise was first introduced to the idea of throwing in track at an early age. Her father was her high school’s track coach. She grew up around the sport and began competing during seventh grade.
