Milligan College has provided an excellent, well-rounded, education opportunity as I’ve attended the past 3 Years. Having professors that care about their students on an individual, name-by-name basis, makes a huge difference in participation, and my own personal reason to want to be a better student, and participate in all aspects of my education experience!

Milligan was a decent college. My bachelors degree in business admin consisted of relatively easy and generic coursework compared to that completed for transfer credit in classes at other colleges. My experience in the MBA program has been the same. Milligan offers great study abroad programs, however, due to the minimal class size, study abroad opportunities are limited and not promoted. The sports teams at this school are excellent with a high student turnout for home games. One exception is the swim program which is rebuilding after years of sub-par coaching. Most students on campus are athletes. Despite how old this College is, it is living in the past and refuses to grow its undergraduate class size to a profitable base. This is an issue when choosing friend groups in that, because their are so few people on campus from only a small variety of backgrounds, many clicks form which leads to less socialization on campus. (1/2)
Milligan College has become my home away from home. I enjoy the change of scenery in the mountains and I have gained new friendships that will last forever. At Milligan, everyone is genuinely nice and willing to help others. Our teachers are very attentive and are always lending a helping hand. Due to the small class sizes, each student gets their desired attention without ever feeling forgotten. I am on the Women's Basketball team and I have had a blast in my first year. I have made strong bonds with my teammates and our team represents the inspiring characteristics of our entire campus. Plus, the Christian atmosphere is incredible. Our campus exhibits the love of God in many ways while opening our arms to those who do not believe. Although I thoroughly enjoy my time at school, there are some ways that Milligan could improve. For instance, I would like to see more diversity, newer dorms, and an increased variety in our cafeteria food.
