Millikin University students and recent graduates took time out of their busy schedules to share their experiences while attending Millikin and explain how Millikin has made an impact in their lives.

"I think Millikin strives to put students outside their comfort zone and that's how you grow as a person," said Emily Love, a nursing graduate from Mattoon, Ill., who recently began a position as a registered nurse on the medical floor at HSHS St. Anthony's Memorial Hospital in Effingham, Ill.

"You get to mold your future and it's such an awesome experience to have," said Emma Morrison, a junior studio art major from Forsyth, Ill., and this year's Blue Connection Summer Artist-in-Residence. "Millikin is really good at getting you involved."

"Millikin is one of those schools that prepares you for not just life in general but for graduate school and for your career," said Nicole Koch, a junior biology major from Morton, Ill. "Millikin is full of possibilities."
