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.

The education major professors for the most part are really good. The general ed. professors lack care of their students in succeeding. They tend to care more about looking smarter than their students, will give lower grades in order to feed their egos. The food is terrible. Don't be surprised if after a few weeks of you start feeling sick all the time. The campus lacks lighting in some areas, they tell you there are at least 2 emergency stations in sight from 1 of them. In most cases this is not true, leaving areas susceptible to possible crimes. I know I was followed at night in one of these suseptable unlight areas. But it was the only pathway to my dorm that got at least some foot traffic on it at night. Better safety measures for those living on campus during winter weather as I have slipped, almost slipped many times on poorly treated sidewalks, roads. Don't be surprised if reverse racism remarks are made by those of ethnicity towards a Caucasian person. Lancaster capus=unsafe!
I love millersville, the campus is stunning! All the students are very nice and there are so many clubs and activities to get yourself involved and to make new friends. One thing I absolutely love is every professor has there highest degree in their field of teaching and so they know what they are teaching, also they are very helpful when you need help and or struggling in the class.
