Hear from Our Graduates

Alex Zalar

Alex Zalar

I didn’t choose this profession for the stories, or the money, and definitely not for the bodily fluids, but to selflessly give myself to my patients and the profession, and to touch the lives of those who need it most. 


Jacob Hamilton

I believe that choosing a wide range of study interests and extracurricular activities while at Millikin truly helped to shape my future. College is a trial run for real life so it is the time to attempt something you’ve always wanted to try but never thought you could do. 


Rachel Munyembabazi

I have always wanted to be able to create my own products and sell them on my own. That’s why I majored in Chemistry with a business emphasis. An entry level position as a lab tech, will help me grow in the industrial field and lead me to where I want to go.

Big Blue Takeover
