Offering more than 50 academic and pre-professional degrees, Millikin is noted for its "outstanding theater department," respected nursing school, and "wonderful pre-med program." With an undergraduate enrollment of just 2,200, Millikin is uniquely dedicated to "creating a personalized education for each and every student." "Classes are no larger than 30 students," and Millikin undergrads get a lot "of personal attention" from their talented professors. Though the teaching staff can be a bit or "hit-or-miss," the vast majority of "Professors are passionate about the subjects they teach." Many "truly care about you as a student," and they will "go out of their way to provide the extra help you need." In compliment to the academic programs, Millkin "stresses the importance of students becoming involved within their campus and the community around it." "From the very first semester, students are presented with opportunities to engage in service," and departments like education and nursing encourage "learning through hands-on experience in and outside the classroom." In addition, there are great "opportunities for international study" and, according to music students, the "choir is world-class." Groomed for the real world, Millkin graduates enjoy a "high job placement rate after graduation."

Overall

Students Say

With such a diverse choice of majors, it's not surprising that Millikin attracts "a huge variety of personality types." "Between our athletic programs, theater, art, dance and creative movement, business, nursing, and everything in between, there is room for just about anyone here"—and most students quickly find a place to fit in. At Millikin, "Your friends may be your teammates, the students in your classes, or part of the same Greek organization." Greeks make up almost a quarter of the student body, and "There is a large arts community," so creative minds proliferate. In addition, "There are a great deal of students involved in music organizations, such as one of the choirs or bands." Despite diversity, there is "mutual respect" among different social groups. Community and personal relationships are the heart of the Millkin experience, and "There is a very strong sense of friendship, community, and family throughout the campus."

Overview

Students Say

Millikin undergraduates are "well rounded" and diligent students, who "are always on top of their work" but also "involved in at least one activity" outside their studies. During the week, students participate in "games, discussion groups, intramural sports, sporting events, and much more." "There is an active Greek community on campus," as well as campus events like "homecoming, trivia nights, game nights, concerts, and cookouts." On most weekends, students gear up for "house parties with outrageous dress-up themes" or head out for "some beers at Donnie's Homespun Pizza." The atmosphere is rather lively, and the campus can feel like a "miniature U of Illinois party town at times." In addition to booze-fueled revelry, students hang out in the dorms or take advantage of the "free movie rental facility on campus." Students "don't have much need to leave our beautiful campus," which is probably a good thing, since hometown Decatur doesn't have much to offer. While they love campus life, students admit that "the food could be better, and the dorms are getting kind of old."
