When you enroll as a student at Millersville University, you become more than just a student; you become a member of a family. I say we’re a family because we help each other out by supporting each other, bringing out the best in each other, and growing together as a community. So, what does it really mean to be a part of this family? In other words, what does it mean to be a Marauder? Who better to ask than Marauders themselves! Here’s what some MU students had to say about what being a Marauder means to them:
Lindsey Edwards, an Early Childhood Education and Special Education dual major and member of the class of 2024 says:
- Being a Marauder means taking the next step into adulthood with new friends and learning how to succeed in the future!!”
At Millersville University, student success both during and after college is a priority for professors and staff members. However, a big part of success comes from having a support system of fellow students encouraging you to do well, which is exactly what Marauders do!
Marina MacGregor, who plans on graduating in Fall 2020 and is a Social Work major with a minor in Phsychology, says:
- “Being a Marauder means working toward acceptance and love for others who are from completely different walks of life.”
Diversity is a huge part of what makes Millersville so special, and true Marauders embrace it. Anyone and everyone is welcome and accepted here!
Abigail Azizkhan, another Early Childhood Education and Special Education dual major and member of the class of 2024 agrees:
- “Being a Marauder means being able to be myself and feeling loved!”
Being a Marauder also means having school spirit. There’s nothing better than going to a school that you can be proud of and that you really love.
Taylor Olszewski, a Music Education Major who will graduate in 2022 says:
- “Being a Marauder means having pride in our campus and campus community as well as holding ourselves to the highest standards!”
Member of the class of 2021 Kaitlyn Hopple, an Early Childhood Education and Special Education dual major with a minor in Psychology, says:
- “Being a Marauder means being there for others, standing up for what you believe in, and being proud of your campus community and the differences it showcases.”
Pride in the Millersville community and the desire to help others are two traits Marauders embody. Here’s what else Millersville students are saying about what being a Marauder means to them:
Alyx Matchett, a Secondary English Education and Psychology dual major and member of the class of 2021 says:
- “Being a Marauder means being part of an amazing community of people who are always willing to learn and experience new things together!!!”
Rhys Wallace, a Secondary Education Social Studies major who is also a member of the class of 2021 says:
- “Being a Marauder means challenging myself to grow with my peers.”
Francesca Polito-Wroten, a member of the Master of Social Work (MSW) Program who intends to graduate from the program in 2022, says:
- “Being a Marauder means being a part of something bigger than myself. It means reaching my goals with friends along the way that are on the same journey as me.”
Cara Haley, who will graduate in May 2022 and is an Early Childhood Education and Special Education dual major with a minor in Integrative STEM Methods says:
- “Being a Marauder means being part of a great community that provides you with resources to help you grow! They provide opportunities and events to help us grow as learners inside and outside of the classroom.”
There are lots of things that make Marauders great. Whether you’re a current student, an incoming student, or an alumni, you’ll always be a part of the Marauder family. What does being a Marauder mean to you? Let us know in the comments! Go ‘Ville!
