What is your overall opinion of this school?

Mills College is a beautiful, idyllic campus with many welcoming and friendly faces. Mills College is a great school if you simply want to get your degree. Their isn't really a social life which is sometimes disappointing if you are a social butterfly. However it is located in Oakland which is 30 minutes away from UC Berkeley and about an hour from San Francisco. Some upsides to the school is that it is a private school so you receive one-on-one assistance from professors. Professors definitely know you by name and you are able to perform great relationships with them. Another great thing about Mills College is the diversity of the student population.

It’s a nice place for a student that don’t not like a big size class. It’s a really nice campus you feel same and the nature is beautiful. Also there is a lot of student activities around the campus that you can be involved such as MSA, Oakland Natives and much more.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Mills College is its own school and I've never seen any other like it. The surroundings are beautiful; it's like we're in our own little bubble in a not so good area of Oakland. Mills has its own community, especially since it's all girls. I love it here!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Mills is an amazing institution, where you can come in knowing nothing about social justice and history, and leave knowing everything you could possibly hope for. Mills is a place where I've found myself, and I've had the opportunity to grow into the person I always wanted to be. Plus, it's near San Francisco, Berkeley, and in the heart of Oakland! All I can say is, thank you Mills.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really love going to school here. I'm a first-year student who wants to major and Art and Technology with a focus in art. My dorm room is pretty nice, if not a little old. I've met some of my best friends this year. Even though the party scene here is quiet, there are plenty of things to do off campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

To be completely honest, I love this school. The only downside In my opinions is that it is an all girls school. The campus itself is so gorgeous, there is a sense of community and I love that. It is in Oakland but its like we're in our own little town inside of Oakland. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else. This is my home my school my growing place.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Mills college has great professors and classes. The school does not have enough money to adequately care for its students needs. The food at mills is terrible unless you use your points to buy food from the shop. The dorms are terrible and need to be updated. This is a good school if you are living off campus and are there for an education only.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love it here!!! But it isn't the utopia that they will lead you to believe it is. It isn't as inter sectional and committed to activism as the pamphlets claim BUT it is still much better than most colleges in that respect. Also there are lots of hills so be prepared to get ripped.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the professors and the students. The campus is beautiful. There was a great atmosphere of social justice and political awareness. The classes were rigorous but offered plenty of out-of-the-classroom support. Sometimes, though, I felt like more money was being put into the carefully manicured lawn than into supporting the students and teachers. The campus is pretty remote, so does not offer easy access to stores, restaurants, public transportation, etc.I felt that the school was not set up to cater to commuter students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Mills College is a space for a very specific type of person. This is not necessarily a bad thing, but the atmosphere and general sense of being at the school can become dull and alienating very quickly. Progressiveness is nearly a given attitude, so people of conservative mindsets have often left the school entirely. Mills is also a bit infamous for its price. The budget seems to be spread thin, so policies and campus life blatantly seem to revolve around money. As for the social scene, the student body is both diverse and bubbled. Like I said, this school is a great fit for a very specific type of person. The best way to get a sense of what I mean by this is to visit the campus in the middle of the weekday, observe the students and staff, possibly hold a few conversations, and determine if you could really see yourself flourishing in this small but special environment.
