Building a Better Millikin
Investing today for a better tomorrow
Now is an exciting time of change at Millikin University. We are working smarter to invest in our beautiful university so that today's students and future Millikin generations will continue to benefit from the resources available to them on our campus.
Frank M. Lindsay Track & Field
After the recent re-dedication of Frank M. Lindsay Field and athletic wins, it is easy to see the impact of more than $1.7 million in renovations to the complex, which features new turf and track surfaces, lights, and state-of-the-art scoreboard. The Big Blue Spirit is alive and well at Millikin in this fantastic new facility.
Renovated Residence Halls
Millikin recognizes the importance to improve our student living and learning spaces. Without displacing current occupants, a $2 million renovation and upgrade of four residence halls (Aston, Blackburn, Dolson, and Weck) begins summer/fall 2015.
University Center & Staley Library
Working toward a Fall 2017 opening, Millikin will begin immediately to plan and create a unique University Center combined with a renovated and re-imagined Staley Library. No longer a stand-alone building, the new University Center at Staley Library will be a collaborative and forward-thinking campus learning, leadership, and dining space in the center of the campus.
Center for Theatre & Dance
Current plans include renovation and addition to the Old Gym, with an additional building linked to the structure to the west. A new center for theatre and dance will give a much-needed centralized home to one of the oldest and largest undergraduate music theatre programs in the country – a program highly regarded for its professionalism, intellectualism and regard for the craft of theatre. Our students have the drive. They have the talent. They just need the proper facility to help them reach their dreams.
Exercise Science & Sport Pavilion
The new Exercise Science and Sport Pavilion will benefit our students by providing space to make improvements in all three components of the curriculum: classroom instruction, internships and the preparation found through faculty supervised hands-on experience.
