Millikin University Reviews
I would not trade my 4 years at MU for anything! I absolutely loved it there even though Decatur can be a sketchy area, this campus is beautiful and old which makes it rich in history and tradition. The student body is decently diverse. The theatre program is amazing as well as the music program. The faculty truly cares for every student. The small campus gives you the close knit family vibe. The townies can be ratchet though. Another fun fact is that it is haunted! I have sooo many spooky experiences :) best food spots drunk or sober are Burrito Truck, First Wok, Donnie’s & University Dogs.
I love Millikin! While there are some things I do not like, the school overall is great. Yes the food might not be too good but its a college campus, what do you expect? The one thing I really do not like about Millikin is the sophomore and junior housing requirements. Millikin has a partnership with The Woods, an apartment complex, and requires sophomores and juniors to live there, in Greek housing, or petition for off campus living. The Woods is separate from Millikin but nevertheless, it is overpriced and often charges students for bogus damages.
As an adult learner, Millikin University's CRNA program has been a great choice for my family and I. class sizes are small, only accepting 14 students per year allowing a more focused one on one education. This is clearly shown in the 2017 cohort with 100% first time pass rate during boards. Secondly, the beauty of attending Millikin University is little to no distractions as there is limited amount of things to do outside of the University ensuring that all of my time is dedicated to the success of passing this program. Lastly, Millikin University if a military friendly school accepting the Post 911 GI bill, Yellow Ribbon participant and accepts tuition assistance. This is huge, especially because many graduate students have a families, mortgages and car payments. Along with a low cost of living, this makes Millikin University a realistic goal.
