First Week at Millikin

Being part of the Millikin community opens the door to an incredible breadth of academic, leadership, and co-curricular opportunities. This experience will teach you what is expected in the college environment and how to best engage in the Millikin community to ensure your success. Millikin is a place where you can do more and be more - the possibilities here are endless!

You will also learn about student organizations, studying abroad, internships, student media, intramurals and recreation, community service, and many more programs and services that support your academic goals, personal development, holistic well-being, and life pursuits.

All First Week activities are mandatory so that you can learn all the information that is vital to your persistence at Millikin. Plus, you'll make bonds that last a lifetime, not only with your peers, but also with our dynamic faculty and administrators.


First Week is designed specifically for first-year students. We want to introduce you to the Millikin experience before your courses start. Get ready to live some of the most exciting days of your college career! We can't wait for you to join us on campus. Take a look at a detailed version of the First Week schedule. 



We are so excited to be part of this important time for you. We have provided you with a Transfer Experience Mentor to assist you while you are with us. During the Transfer Orientation experience you will be able to meet your mentor. You will receive information from your Transfer Experience Mentor in July. Please contact Molly Berry with questions. Download a detailed version of the Transfer Experience Schedule for more information.


Congratulations on your admission to Millikin University. We are looking forward to having you on our campus and promise to assist in making your time at Millikin the educational experience you anticipate. Visit our After Acceptance page for specific information about orientation and the many ways MU will help to make your transition as easy as possible.
