Back the Big Blue header


When asked what they love most about Millikin, most students, faculty and staff describe the sense of community and feeling of satisfaction in contributing to the mission of the institution. 

Millikin’s new Spirit Fridays give students, faculty and staff a visible way to show that pride and support by sporting the blue and white. Each Friday throughout the year, we invite our campus community to back the Big Blue by wearing your favorite Millikin apparel. 

Sport your favorite button down, pull on a MU sweater and top it off with a Big Blue hat – or get started with this limited edition t-shirt free to those who take the Back the Big Blue pledge!
