Millikin set me up for success by allowing me to challenge myself. Without Millikin I would not have gained the confidence I have today.


Bekidaremaje Williams

You will succeed. You will graduate. You will get that job. You will accomplish those goals. Hearing those encouraging words made me work harder throughout my years at Millikin.
