We Are Buff Nation



Nationally Recognized Academics

A nationally recognized liberal arts institution, Milligan believes it’s important for students to understand the ideas and events that have shaped history and created the world we now know. When you combine that broad education with focused training in your major (over 100 options), you learn not only how to make a living but how to make sense out of life. And we believe that means leading by serving. At Milligan, you’ll get one-on-one personal attention from professors (12:1 student-to-faculty ratio) who are among the best in their fields and who love teaching and mentoring. They want to help you discover and develop the unique ways God has created you to make a real differenceLEARN MORE » 

The Milligan Difference: Real Community

You’ll soon discover what makes Milligan stand out from other colleges and universities — it’s a Christian community that is genuine and real. We’re not perfect, but we’re a real place, with real people, all learning and serving a real God. Our students come from all over the country (40+ states) and world (20+ countries), so you’ll find students with interests similar to your own, as well as those of different cultures, backgrounds, and views. It’s a place with fun traditions, great athletic programs, and lots to do. We also are a community where lasting friendships are made that go beyond time or place. Once a Buff, always a Buff. That’s the Milligan differenceLEARN MORE »

A Place Where Faith Matters

We want to help you find that sweet spot where your career path matches your passion and God’s mission — that’s your life purpose. And it’s why everything we do at Milligan — in the classroom, residence hall, or athletic field — is designed to encourage and prepare you to make a real difference as a servant-leader. We’re not afraid to ask tough questions and discuss diverse viewpoints because we want you to think through these issues from a Christian worldview and be prepared to live out Milligan’s Latin motto, Age Deo Fide et Amore, a charge to “Act for God with faith and love.”  LEARN MORE »

Visit Milligan

We are currently scheduling both virtual tours and on-campus tours. 

Virtual Visits: We are currently scheduling virtual campus visits.  Virtual visits include a virtual campus tour, chatting with an admissions recruiter, and the possibility of a virtual meeting with a professor in your academic area of interest. ‍

On-Campus Visits: As of June 1, we are offering on-campus visits, but please note that summer tour options are limited, and social distancing precautions will be followed. Faculty and students are not available, but you can see our beautiful campus, talk with admissions personnel, and get an idea of what it’s like to be part of #BuffNation. We’ll help you connect to our campus community as much as possible!


Connections Orientation

Normally, Milligan hosts an on-campus orientation event, called Connections. However, due to COVID-19 and the difficulty of hosting a large group event, we instead will offer virtual ways for you to connect to Milligan and prepare for a smooth transition to college life. We soon will share plans for course registration, faculty mentor meetings, spending time with other students in your major, and getting important information about studying at Milligan — important steps in your journey of becoming a Buffalo!  Click here to learn more »
