New Student Welcome Week 2023

August 15-20

Being part of the Millikin community opens the door to an incredible breadth of academic, leadership, and co-curricular opportunities. The New Student Welcome Week experience will teach you what is expected in the college environment and how to best engage in the Millikin community to ensure your success. Millikin is a place where you can do more and be more - the possibilities here are endless! You will meet peer leaders (First Year Experience Mentors) who will guide you through your introduction to college, and assist you before the start of classes.

New Student Welcome Week is a blend of important information for classes and life on campus, as well as social opportunities with your peers and faculty. This is the best opportunity to experience what Millikin has to offer before all of your course work begins. You will also learn about student organizations, studying abroad, internships, student media, intramurals and recreation, community service and many more programs and services that support your academic goals, personal development, holistic well-being and life pursuits.

All New Student Welcome Week activities are mandatory so that you can learn all the information that is vital to your persistence at Millikin. Plus, you'll make bonds that last a lifetime, not only with your peers, but also with our dynamic faculty and administrators. Please check below for a detailed schedule.
