Delphine Iragena

Coming from a developing country I wanted to major in something that I thought could help individuals and communities better themselves. I want to be able to give back to my people by using the tools Millikin equipped me with.

Kara Allison

The Millikin History Department shares a very close relationship with students. The faculty cares deeply for the students and wants to help them succeed in every aspect of their lives. I have spent countless hours in professors’ offices discussing class lectures, research topics, books,and my future goals. The faculty has been my sounding board and has guided me to achieve success in the classroom and in the professional field. Through the History Department, I have become a well-rounded individual.I have developed my writing, reading, debating, and critical thinking skills.
