I'm new here, but ever since I came to my first open house I've been in love with the place! The campus is so gorgeous, the programs are so good for the price (especially teaching, which is what I am majoring in), the food is comparatively good. The band is better than the football team, if that's what you're looking for. Dorms are sub par, but after your freshman year you can go to on campus apartments which are really nice. The wifi overall isn't the best, it's spotty and goes out for a while. MU is incredibly safe. Another benefit is how many connections you make and how certain it is that you will succeed. There are opportunities for professional advancement, research, internships, and careers at every turn. If you have initiative they will help you.
tldr; go here if you want a quality education for cheap and are okay with the wifi blinking sometimes.

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.
