Imagine an environment where you live, learn, and experience all the great things Millikin has to offer.

This community is the ultimate Millikin experience where you will attend a common class in your residence hall, live with your classmates, and support the spirit of the Big Blue through attendance at musical performances, sporting events, or art shows.  This LLC is connected to one of Millikin's thriving student organizations, Millistat, which stands for: "Students Today, Alumni Tomorrow".  

The First-Year Big Blue Experience Living-Learning Community is co-ed, air conditioned and features suite-style living with a private bathroom for every four students. TV buffs and bookworms alike will enjoy the large study area and lounge.

“Living in the community was possibly the best thing for me. It helped me come out of my shell easier than I would have if I had to socialize on my own. All of the interaction with everyone in my dorm helped me establish friendships with the people I live with quickly so branching off wouldn't be as difficult.” ~Travis W. (freshman)

“The community has been a great experience. It has been so nice to get used to Millikin by having classes with the people you live with." ~ Spencer R. (freshman)
