Cedarville Magazine, Fall 2023

15TH CONSECUTIVE RECORD ENROLLMENT For the 15th-consecutive year, Cedarville University is celebrating a record total enrollment. According to the fall census, 2023 graduate, undergraduate, and dualenrolled student count increased by 374 students, or 7.4%, to 5,456 students. Driving this growth was an increase in the dual enrollment program, with 744 new students taking classes this fall for a total of 1,089 dual-enrolled high school students. We also welcomed the secondlargest freshman class in our history with 1,017 students. Last year’s total enrollment was 5,082 — the first time in the University’s 135-year history that it exceeded 5,000 students. There are also 538 graduate students enrolled in Cedarville’s 12 online and residential degree programs, including the first cohort of students in the new PA (physician assistant) Studies program. “We don’t measure success based on numbers. We seek to be thankful and good stewards of each student God sends our way," said Thomas White, President. "Even so, we are blessed by continued stability in student enrollment and the more than $130 million committed to our $175 million fundraising campaign. God has been good to us.” According to Scott Van Loo '98, Vice President for Enrollment Management, incoming students chose Cedarville because of the University’s biblical worldview in every class, its chapel program and Bible minor, quality academics and top career placement rates, and a fun, vibrant campus community. "We take this stewardship seriously as we strive to fulfill our mission of transforming lives through excellent education and intentional discipleship in submission to biblical authority," added White.
