Made it Millikin: Theodore Fisher

Local student breaks "small town" barriers

Made it Millikin: Theodore Fisher

For those that grow up in a "college town," there may be preconceived notions about staying close to home to attend a university. Students like Millikin University sophomore Theodore Fisher are breaking that barrier.

A Decatur, Ill., native, Fisher chose to come to Millikin because of its prestigious School of Music that would support his music performance minor, along with the knowledge that he would gain while still having the comforts of home that the then 17-year-old needed.

"Going into Millikin, I was only 17, so I figured I would need to mature before going elsewhere in my higher education," the civil engineering major said.
