The newspaper notes that Millis is majoring in biology, plans to attend medical school, is a member of Phi Beta Kappa, and has been on the "dean's list every semester at DePauw with a 4.0 grade-point average."

The newspaper also lists Millis' many activities; among them: his service to the Greencastle community, an on-air shift at student radio station WGRE and his membership in the organization Men Against Rape. "We spread our message to DePauw that rape is a men's issue too (more than 90 percent of rapes and sexual assaults are committed by men and one in five women will be the victim of a rape or sexual assault)," Millis is quoted as saying. "We tell people to think of the five women they care most about in their life, then give them that stat. We set up tables in the quad and pass out information. We raise money for local battered women's shelter through campus events."

The Star also details Millis' summer plans: "Doing medical research for Methodist Hospital for a surgeon I shadowed last summer for about 40 hours a week. This summer, I will be doing research on an Achilles tendon study that I get to create, generate a hypothesis, test it by collecting data and then give a presentation on my research at the end of the summer."
