Millikin University Reviews
Millikin University is a spectacular college. They pride themselves on their fine arts education, which is fantastic, but all other academic fields are thoroughly represented. The dorms are clean and well taken care of. The food is great! The classes are challenging, yet save room for being fun and interesting. The majority of the professors on campus work hard to help you achieve success. And lastly, Millikin is filled with great people--students and faculty alike provide a great learning experience.
I love the small classes and professor to student ratio. The classes are not intimidating at all, which is great. However, I wish there were more scholarships offered by Millikin University. Scholarships are a very important part of college to me. Overall, I love how Millikin University is like one big family!
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.
