One thing that I have loved about Millersville is how supportive the faculty and staff have been to my college experience so far. I chose Millersville because I loved how everyone I met was friendly and cared about the students. The faculty want to help you learn and want to help you to succeed, and I have really appreciated this. I have also learned so much at school. I have really enjoyed being in the honors college program and the community provided because of it. It has been fantastic!
My experience at Millersville University has definitely changed me for the better. I am more accepting, less judgmental and overall content with the experiences I've made thus far.

One of my favorite experiences on campus include setting up for the Spring Concert! On campus, the group that is in charge of organizing who will preform is the concert committee. The meetings are memorable and enjoyable because of the teamwork. The meetings are every week, once a week; sometimes it can get stressful debating how things should be ran, but in the long run once the concert is over, all of our hard work will be paid off!

Aspects that make my school unique is the gorgeous scenery. In between classes on a nice day, students sit outside by the pond and socialize. It makes you feel one with nature and if you're ever stressed it is a soothing environment.

If I had the chance to restart my college search experience, I would not change a thing. I love Millersville. It is my home away from home. I have met so many new diverse people, learned so many new concepts and have had a first hand experience to living on my own. My first year as a freshman at Millersville University has been incredible and I would not change it for the world.
School so far has exceeded my expectations. I didn't think I would make friends as quickly as I did but they know what they're doing when they set up their orientation groups. I also love the pond with the swans, which was a selling point for me because the campus is beautiful. This school has gotten me to come out of my shell and even go see a lot of the football games when I only went to one in high school! Overall it is a great school with great people and professors, the dining halls are very nice and I'm very excited to go back. If only the out of state tuition was lower and it wasn't two and a half hours away this school the best!
