Welcome Message from Millikin President Dr. Patrick E. White

The start of the academic year is always a special time at Millikin University as the fall semester promises to be filled with engaging activities, events, and what lies at the heart of a Millikin education, Performance Learning.

Millikin President Dr. Patrick E. White took the opportunity to kick off Fall 2018 with a welcoming message for the Big Blue community:

It's a great deal of pleasure to welcome back all faculty, staff and returning students, and particularly welcome new students to Millikin University. You are bringing the University alive this fall.

Over the summer we've been working on the new Center for Theatre & Dance, the new baseball field, new projects and new curricula. There's been a lot going on this summer, but at the same time, the campus comes alive in August when new students come to campus for New Student Welcome Week.

I want to thank everyone for being a part of the Millikin momentum moving forward. I want to thank you for your contributions and support, and I want to particularly thank our new students who are going to bring new life and new excitement to Millikin University.

We are already a great university, but we will be a greater university because you will be a part of the Millikin momentum going forward.

Let's keep that momentum going and have a great year.
