March 20 Update: Today’s Announcement, Room and Board Refunds, and Resound Radio

March 20, 2020 |

I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” (Psalm 91:2)

Today was unprecedented in Cedarville’s history. Explaining the difficult decision and echoing the sadness we all feel, Dr. White announced that classes would continue online for the remainder of the semester, all spring events are canceled or moved to a virtual format, residential students should schedule a move out date, and commencement is postponed. If you missed his chapel presentation, we encourage you to view it now:

Today’s updates also include more information about room and board refunds, instructions for key returns, updated dining hall hours, a new archive for Dr. White’s daily walking videos, and Resound Radio sharing encouraging music.

Room and Board Refunds – As announced today, refunds of the unused portion of room and board will be credited to student accounts during the week of March 23-27, 2020, and applied to any outstanding balance. Students may leave this credit on their account for next semester or request a refund to their bank account on file.

Key Return – For students who have already moved their belongings out of the residence hall and will not be returning to campus this spring, please return your University key(s) in a small padded envelope. Be sure to include your name, ID number, and the building/room that the key opens (Jane Doe, 1234567, DMC 124).

Dining Hours – Lunch is now available for takeout from 12-1 p.m. from the dining hall, and dinner is available from 4:30-5:30 p.m. Review all campus office hours.

Dr. White’s Daily Updates – For easier access, we’ve created a webpage to house all of Dr. White’s daily walking updates. These 60-second informal videos offer encouragement and the latest news from Cedarville from the president’s point-of-view.

Monday’s Chapel – Dr. White plans to address the campus community again live from the chapel stage on Monday and provide a message of encouragement from Hebrews 12. We hope you will join us for online chapel at 10 a.m. EDT via Facebook Live or the livestream on the University website.

Resound Radio – Did you know that student-run Resound Radio is continuing to operate 24/7 during this period of online instruction, continuing its mission from Ephesians 4:29 to “build others up?” According to faculty advisor Jim Leightenheimer, students are learning valuable lessons as Christian communicators and are receiving positive audience feedback. Resound is providing another way for our students to stay connected to Cedarville. Listen now >>
