Centennial

2013 marks Cairn University’s 100th anniversary. In January, we unveiled a special centennial logo and the centennial theme, “Great is Thy Faithfulness.”

Beginning with Commencement in May 2013 and concluding with Commencement 2014, Cairn will be celebrating God’s great faithfulness throughout its history as well as casting a vision for a second century. Throughout the year, there will be concerts, events, lectures, and features in the magazine and on the website that will tell the Cairn story and communicate plans for the future. Homecoming 2013 will be the centerpiece of the year-long celebration. We encourage you to plan now to attend the Centennial Homecoming Celebra­tion the first weekend in October. It will be full of activities you won’t want to miss!

We chose the theme, “Great is Thy Faithfulness” because the University hymn and verse are woven into the life of the school. Through many changes and many challenges the institution has held firm in its conviction that Christ and the Word are to be the center of all we do, and that all that we have been, are now, and will be are a result of God’s grace and great faithfulness. From the institution’s modest beginnings as a Bible institute in the city of Philadelphia Cairn has emerged as a regional private Christian university that calls its students to walk a different path.

As the University celebrates the centennial marker, new opportunities abound and the vision for the future is clear as we seek to fulfill our mission to educate students to serve Christ.
