What Students Are Saying

millersville university is a good school with a wide range of academics to choose from. students are friendly and the campus is relaxing with many different activities to engage in. the school size is also very small which makes classroom sizes easy to learn in. with an experienced staff and affordable tuition, it is a good choice if you plan on achieving a good education without spending the same amount you would somewhere else!
kd from philadelphia, pa
Great professors, good variety of majors, great resources. It is a relaxed campus setting, meaning you can do your own thing, provided your own thing isn't too loud or obnoxious, as most students here enjoy the quiet and ability to rest/study when they want. Food is average, but from what I hear, that's high praise for college cafeterias. While it is a safe quiet campus, some things are taken too far, like desk assistants now having to work until 3 am on school nights. Overall, love it here.
Francis from Exton, PA
Many of the classes have small class sizes, which is nice, since you are able to get more attention from professors and most will know your name. The pond by the math building is beautiful and it is nice to go there and feed some of the local wildlife like ducks, squirrels and the swans. Overall, the campus is a pretty chill and peaceful place to be, which is nice when your dealing with workload stress.
Jessica from Etters, PA
Millersville is a cozy school in a small-town setting that makes it easy to feel comfortable and at home on campus. The programs at Millersville, particularly the education department which I am currently going up through, are very good and provide students with many unique opportunities. Millersville is a beautiful place to attend school and is constantly updating to provide it's students with technology and resources which will help them grow and succeed.
Faith from Holtwood, PA
Millersville University is very diverse, and has many opportunities for students to reach their highest potential. Being the first person to go to college in my family, Millersville made sure that everything that I needed help with was handled and the professors are always there to help you whenever your behind on work. I am glad that I choose Millersville University because it gave me the determination to never give up and to seize the opportunity.
Marie from Philadelphia, PA
Millersville is a wonderful university with wonderful people all around campus. There are so many clubs and organizations to get involved in. The professors are very willing to help you out in any way that they can.
Ashley from East Berlin, PA
Millersville is a good size campus where everything is in walking distance. You always see familiar faces and are always meeting new people. Lots of things to do both on and off campus with a group of people or just to venture off by yourself.
