Millikin University senior criminal justice major and Carbondale (Ill.) native Eva Anthony did not intend on attending college in her home state, let alone a small private institution like Millikin. Now four years later, she has made waves throughout her time on campus because of leadership and Performance Learning opportunities.
Anthony began her journey at Millikin as a computer science major but found herself enrolling in a few criminal justice courses based on her interests. After finally changing her major to criminal justice later in her college career, she began to feel as though she had found her passion.
Anthony said, "I like the idea of helping people in domestic violence situations and getting kids out of bad areas, so just having those classes I was in I was like 'yeah, this is where I'm supposed to be.'"
