Cedarville University is a private, Christian, liberal arts university
in southwestern Ohio. The website for this university is a nicely
laid out website that is easy to use and easy to find things that you
need regarding the university.
On the top of the main page are nice pictures that change each time you
load the site. To the left is a toolbar with various options
including academics, departments, employment, and even a website search
option. On the main of the page are options for admissions,
services and ministries, and alumni and friends. Below these
options are upcoming events, spotlight, and Cedarville University
news. Each of these headers has various related links to click on
below them, taking the users exactly where he or she wants to go.
The link for prospective students under the admissions header is
helpful for students attempting to pick a university. I know for
several of my friends that weren't able to come visit the campus, the
website was a big selling point in both its design and ease of
use. There is info on this page about SAT and ACT's, very helpful
for a clueless high school student.
There are also options to
read the president of the university's blog, take a virtual campus
tour, apply, and view scholarship information.
One of the nicest features for prospective students on this site, is
the fact that the catalog can be viewed online, making looking up
classes and programs much easier than on most university
websites. On some sites, it is almost impossible to find out what
classes are offered, or what is available for a certain major, but on
Cedarville's website, it is all clearly laid out in the online
On the site, there is also sports information, an option to search for
a person, a page specifically for students and another for faculty, and
many other great features. There isn't much about the university
that you cannot find out from the website.
