Cedarville College Alumni News and Aviso

This is a collection of the Cedarville College Alumni News, later known as Aviso and Aviso II. It ceased publication in 1990 and was replaced by the alumni magazine, Inspire and then by Alumnotes.

Cedarville College Bulletin

When the Baptist Bible Institute of Cleveland purchased Cedarville College in 1953, they continued to use the name of the institute's newsletter, Testimony, but adopted the numbering of volumes used by the college for the Bulletin of Cedarville College. In December 1955, the name Testimony was dropped and the newsletter was called the Bulletin of Cedarville College. In August 1967, the name was changed to Cedarville College Bulletin. There are inconsistencies in the numbering of volumes from year to year.
