International students at Millikin University integrate into campus life, taking part in the Honors Program, organizations, theatre, music and other cultural activities, as well as Millikin’s athletic teams. The Center for International Education will be your home away from home and there you will find all the support you may need.

Student Activities

College is much more than time inside a classroom. At Millikin, you'll find a full calendar of activities, from recreational sports to concerts, students trips and special events.

Did you know that students learn more when they are involved in both academic and social aspects of the collegiate experience? An involved student is one who devotes considerable energy to academics, spends much time on campus, participates actively in student organizations/activities, and interacts often with faculty.

Check out the current directory listing of our 110 Student Organizations at Millikin and those that address cultural and/or global issues. Get involved in our International Student Organization or one of our other organizations.

  • Health and Counseling

    Millikin University Health and Counseling Center provides students and employees with medical services and free and confidential counseling services.

    It is not uncommon for students to experience distress from time to time. The college years are one of the most challenging transition periods in life. Adjusting to campus life, increased academic demands, relationship problems, and other personal issues can feel overwhelming at times.

    Confidential personal counseling services are available throughout the academic year to assist students in overcoming their difficulties. Staff members utilize an approach that emphasizes personal responsibility, prevention, intervention, and a concern for the whole student. It is their goal to assist students in improving their abilities to make informed decisions that positively affect their mental, physical, and spiritual health.

  • Physical Fitness

    The Decatur Indoor Sports Center at Millikin (DISC) offers a broad array of physical fitness opportunities, including organized sports at various levels (varsity, club, and recreational) and fitness classes and centers. As an international student at Millikin, you will have access to the DISC at no additional cost.

  • Diversity Centers and Resources

    The Office of Inclusion and Student Engagement (ISE) is one of the many offices to assist you in your development while at Millikin University. Here you will find services such as various identity-based student organizations, social gatherings, academic support services and programs, leadership development opportunities, mentorship programs, and much more. ISE will also be a place where students, faculty, and staff can dialogue around issues of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, socio-economics and other themes.

    The Office of Inclusion and Student Engagement strives to provide a place where all students feel welcome, accepted, encouraged and empowered.

    The Office of Inclusion and Student Engagement seeks to acknowledge the important role religion and spiritual values play in students’ lives as they grow and develop as democratic citizens. ISE will create opportunities for dialogue and learning around issues of spiritual, ethical, and moral concern to assist students in the development of a personal life of meaning and value. Most importantly, ISE serves as a resource for people of various religious or spiritual values among Millikin students, faculty, staff, as well as the surrounding community.
