Why Cedar Crest College

"Cedar Crest is a magical place and no one can tell me otherwise. The transformation of students from freshman year to senior year is practically breathtaking. Every day I think about the amazing students who I have known and am grateful for the opportunity to be someone who was an important influence on their lives and I reflect on how they have also transformed my life."
