| I'm a now a sophomore next fall at Millersville. Honestly its a ok school. But if your thinking you can have the ideal college experience here, NOPE think again. Millersville is by statistics, is exactly advertised. A small school in a small town. If your here to get a education and you take college reputability in too consideration, then YES, Millersville is the TOP #1 state school in PA. But, the social life here sucks. People are a bit close minded. Especially people from Western PA, like Pittsburgh,etc. They tend to be more close-minded, some are a bit racist and prejudice depending on the small town they are from. |
There are a few rich stuck up kids from around PA/Out of State, but that's at any college you go too. Yes sadly there are cliques here at MU. All the kids on Club/Varsity hangout/stick together. Usually party houses are called by the sport. The "Football house", "Soccer House" etc. YOU HAVE TO KNOW people on the team to go to there parties, or you will feel outcasted. Trust me!
Me, I am a African American Male. Who grew up in Lancaster City. I did not have the best grades/SAT but I got into Millersville base on them needing to achieve a certain quota of Minorities. Millersville tends to get kids from my High School J.P McCaskey in Lancaster and TONS of inner-city kids from Philly. THAT RIGHT THERE, creates cliques. As a few of these kids are intimidated/do not want to mesh with whites on campus. But don't get me wrong, Millersville diversity is way better than some of the other State schools in PA. I see a lot of interracial dating/ interaction.
I came to Millersville because it gave me the best opportunity to become a walk-on for the Mens Track&Field team. The coach reach out to me, etc. THAT BEING SAID. MY freshman year was the worst because Millersville drop there mens track&field team. As we are the most under-funded sport, but anyways it was a face-saving political move because the Athletic Administration sucks/ are run by idiots. Millersville has no school spirit when it comes to sports. Millersville does not fund its athletics properly compared to other schools. Most kids here hardly get scholarship money and are simple recruits.
Just as I join the Track team, made some friends and etc. Starting enjoy my experience at Millersville. The overall administration ruin my experience that comes along with learning and continues to ruin other students.
The goods of Millersville: Education Majors, Soccer Team, Baseball Team, Campus Aesthetic, A few good teachers,
THE BAD: FOOTBALL TEAM SUCKS!!!!!LITERALLY SUCKS, Poor Adminstration, Small Town, 70%% Of STUDENTS COMMUTE= GHOST TOWN, KIDS WHO LIVE ON CAMPUS, goes home ANYWAYS! Personally I still want to run track&field and get away from home. Since most kids commute at Millersville, theres not much of that social college experience. I hope this help, but honestly unless your a education major, dont come to Millersville. ... I will be transferring!

| Going into Millersville I was very excited and I must admit I was drawn in by the beautiful campus.. well, so much for that. I wish I had looked more into the school, and I will be transferring next semester as a junior. The school attitude is terrible, everyone dislikes it here. It's declining more and more every semester, even my friends that graduated years ago have said so. It's just really obvious that this school is in disrepair from an incompetent president and now that she is retiring early, were just kind of left with a sucky campus. Hopefully the new pres will take over and do something great but I won't stick around to watch it probably not happen. Oh, and if you plan on coming to this school I hope you don't need a library cause we don't have one. Construction is literally taking over the entire campus and it is so ugly. And us crazy student body needs a library, but instead the school gave us nothing. The SMC is beautiful, I will say that. The students are pretty arrogant and closeminded but of course, there are some wonderful people that I have met here. |
The psychology program is kind of a joke. Most of the professors are nice but there aren't many opportunities to "stand out" in the major. There basically isn't a psych club either, which I wanted to get into when I started but all you do is watch movies, it's really lame. Although I have heard great things about the teaching program, and I do think that is the only gem of Millersville.All in all, if you want to be mediocre Millersville is a great school. The money you spend here honestly won't be worth your education as they raise tuition so much because of construction every year.

| Nursing majors: Beware! They will screw up your classes and you'll find yourself taking classes YOU DIDN'T NEED! Horrible advice, class advisor doesn't read emails and before you know it, you're taking a class blowing a grand on something you didn't need for the degree!!! Not just me, others, too (OK 3 others, but 1 is too many)! The reason? Unread emails, unread transcripts. One guy took a class he already took (why didn't he speak, why didn't they notice)?|
You will find MANY students in this region do NOT have command of their own native language. I have never encountered this at other universities or even community colleges. This is unique to this part of the country. Read reviews here and you'll see many don't have a handle on the language of the land (not ebonics; that's everywhere-- all races have issues with American dialect English here)!
I graduated last year and I can honestly say with a straight face that I did not learn a single new thing that will help me. The BSN program is just a scam of busywork some idiot created we ALL already had in our original program. I also can attest to the fact there IS favoritism (luckily I was on the recipient-side) but this is unfair to those not on the bad end of favoritism/racism/ageism.
Perhaps it's the grammar and spelling (basic grade school stuff) that turns them on you, I don't know (but if you write a paper or participate in online class content, learn your own language or pay in grades)!I can also say, being on the receiving end, I did not earn the grades I made, nor did I deserve them. I agree classes were either bonehead easy (busywork guaranteed A) or incredibly difficult. This is unfortunate, because if they cleaned out administration, this place would have a lot of potential.
