As a former freshmen at Cedar Crest College, I would suggest prospective students to come in with an open mind. Expect to receive a lot of helpful information that can be used throughout your first year experience and daily living. Expect to meet many great people who can contribute to your success.

What makes you unique?! Show our admissions office exactly who you are. You are more than just a test score and a GPA. Prove it to us!
Laurian from Pasadena, MD
A good tip for Cedar Crest College is to get involved, the more involved a student is the more they feel at home here and it helps them grow as a person. I am currently the Vice president of the Conservation club, Treasurer of Student government, I am a varsity member of the Cross Country team, I am active in volunteering for the community, and I also work as an Ambassador in Admissions. Because I am so involved I have had an opportunity to meet new people, try new things and grow as a person, these experiences have helped me to grow as a person. Also I take full advantage of all the study abroad opportunities on campus, over this last winter break I went to Arizona to study the plant life there, this summer I am going to Guyana to explore the Rain forest and learn about the amazing habitats cultures there.
Joellyn from Morris Plains, NJ
Get involved with the college community. The campus is not huge and niether is the student body so get involved and meet new people. There is no need to be stuck in your dorm room 24/7 studying. Let loose and got to the functions the college offers. There are plenty of off campus trips funded by the school so take advantage of them.
