Millikin University

Looking for a college experience that will challenge you to follow your passions, perform your knowledge, and build the confidence needed to succeed after graduation? Millikin is for you. When James Millikin founded Millikin University in 1901, his approach to education was unique. It combined theory and practice, requiring students to "connect the dots" of their learning inside and outside of the classroom. Today, Millikin takes this approach one step further with "performance-learning". Practice is no longer enough. To be truly prepared for todays global economy, Millikin students win opportunities to demonstrate their learning by working with real companies, on real projects. The result: Millikin grads are better prepared after graduation than others. Students do everything from student-teach in Taiwan to participate in moot court trials; they close $1 million deals for local companies, research human twin genes with professors, and win the opportunity to audition before agents in New York City. Last year, 99% of Millikin graduates got jobs or entered graduate school within six months of graduation. In this recession, thats saying something. The difference was the confidence they built over time because of their Millikin education. Ready to start building your confidence? Apply today.
