    I am an alumni (Class of 2016) and would recommend this institution to anyone looking for a small-town, cozy college experience. Millersville has a few niche majors like Ocean Sciences, Occupational Safety, & Meteorology. These majors definitely brought students in from across the nation and offered strong career opportunities.

    Overall, I enjoyed my professors. I graduated with a Sociology degree with a Criminology concentration and minored in both Spanish and Athletic Coaching. I found all of my departments staff, with the exception of a couple, to be caring and helpful!

    There were multiple on-campus jobs and the size of the institution allowed for multiple avenues to get involved. Partying was not very prevalent unless you looked for the party scene. Regardless of individual involvements, I found all students to be welcoming and inviting!

    My experience at Millersville University has been phenomenal! I have participated in two different organizations (MU Footprints & FUSION Step Team) as an Exec Board Member and have worked my way up to in these organizations and had also begun my own student organization (After School Corps) that focused on student volunteering. In 2016 I was nominated to participate in Millersville University's Homecoming Court and had the privilege of learning about some of the other student leaders from the university. During my time on Homecoming Court my love for the University grew and I was honored and crowned as Millersville University's 2016 Homecoming Queen. Through my many involvements on campus; student organizations, homecoming court, housing employee, and student services employee; I have learned many skills that have been very useful for me professionally.
    My freshman year of Millersville was so good! I was involved in a campus ministry called The Navigators which allowed me to make great friends, have fun, and be involved in extracurricular activities. I think Millersville should include healthier options of food. I commute, but whenever I forgot lunch there was hardly any healthy options to choose from. Overall my first year at Millersville was great. I'm excited to go back this fall!
