The cost of tuition, on the other hand, is continually rising and is not worth the high cost. I suggest that this is due to the new building they are building on campus. The on-campus living is okay, but extremely expensive. (The Woods Apartment rent is $803 a month per person, whereas it costs around $300-400 a month to rent an off-campus house. Their pretense for meeting the Woods' occupancy is that their students learn better on campus) The rules are strict, compared to other institutions. Individuals working at the office of residence life violate a lot of privacy in their position (checking rooms and individuals' bags). The campus life is great. A lot of student organizations are present! The campus is not too diverse, but this is something that Millikin is working on. Also, they are working on making sure that students are represented, especially minorities.

I love how the professors want to see their students succeed. I am pursing a degree in nursing and ever since I have met my advisor I have felt at home at Millikin. Since I am a commuter I drive to school every day and Public Safety is only one call away if I need help and there are also emergency buttons in the parking lots if I feel unsafe. The officers are on patrol at all times which makes students feel safe, including myself. There are plenty on resources on campus if I ever need help with homework or I need a quiet place to study. Professors encourage students to come to their office hours and this is allows a platonic relationship to form but also allows students to fell encouraged to ask for help about anything going on in the classroom.

I really enjoy the environment that the school offers. It's a very unique experience to be a millikin student. The school is small, but feels large because of the fact the you know so many people. The classes are a good enough size to know many of the people in your class as well as also knowing the proffesor.
