Students seem to be fairly tolerant of gays. Queers and Allies is the primary organization for the LGBT community; it's active on campus and even holds a "Coming Out Day."
Millikin does not appear to lean one way or another. Left-wing people and right-wing people are pretty evenly spread throughout campus. There are a few political events on campus, but not many. Some political events off campus are advertised, so students can attend those if they wish. There are three political/governance organizations on campus: Student Housing Council (SHC), Multicultural Student Council, and Student Senate. They are quite active, especially Student Senate and SHC.
Many students benefit from scholarships. Ninety-nine percent of Millikin students receive more than $32.1 million in student financial aid. Everyone benefits in one way or another. There is no segregation between the rich kids and the working class. Everybody meshes together well.
Most Common Religions
Christianity or Catholicism would be the most common religious practices on campus. Westminster Presbyterian Church is close to Millikin, so there may be some Presbyterians, as well. Everyone blends together, so there are no visible differences between religions. Students welcome the diversity. There are currently two religious student organizations on campus: Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship and Newman Catholic Community.
Minority Clubs on Campus
There are several cultural/international student organizations on campus, and all appear to be quite active. Organizations include Black Student Union, Chinese Student Association, International Student Organization, Millikin Micro Finance Fund, Multicultural Voices of Praise, and Sigma Delta Pi. These organizations give students a chance to understand other cultures and nationalities, and students are very active and visible in these clubs.
