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.

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.
I like how passionate the education department teachers are about equipping us to become teachers! I also like how interactive and hands-on the education department is with our classes, they really get us out into field experience opportunities to experience firsthand what teaching looks like.
