Mikah Betterton is a University Innovation Fellow at Wichita State University. She is currently a sophomore studying Mechanical
Engineering. She was born and raised in Wichita, Kansas, where she graduated Cum Laude from Kapaun Mt. Carmel High School in 2017.

Mikah has always been drawn to mathematics from a young age. From wanting to be a math teacher to an architect, she finally settled on Mechanical Engineering as her major. She decided to go to Wichita State based on their focus towards engineering and being close to home.  

During her time in UIF, Mikah has helped start ICT Tour. ICT Tour is for first year students who are not from Wichita and want to explore more of their college town. ICT Tour will take the students around Wichita’s local restaurants and shops, who would then punch a hole in their card. Once they fill up their card and take it to the Office of First Year Programs they will be awarded a gift. This will help drive first year students to become more active in their community and help local businesses get more customers at their store.

Outside of her time in UIF, Mikah is an ACE Engineering Coach, PINK campus rep, and apart of the Honors College on campus. She enjoys traveling, food, clothes, and sleep, all the things her UIF cohort keeps tally of in their meetings.
