4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Campus crime is sparse and the surrounding area's crime has only occasionally bleed through into the campus, though never in any serious capacity.

Overall Experience: The alumni network is very strong because the school is so close-knit and small. I am confident that I will find a job once I graduate.

Campus Housing: I love the antique charm of the buildings, and I have a single room with a porch attached. Very close to classes, I can get to my classes in about 5 minutes.

Athletics: We are a Division III school, and sports aren't a huge part of everyone's campus life, but those involved feel a huge connection to their sport and team.

Overall Experience: The Queer Community at Mills has helped me understand myself so much more than any one community before, and I am so interested in what I am learning about that it feels like cheating!

Party Scene: There's hardly any partying on campus. A Mills party is a few people getting together to have a few glasses of wine and talk about social justice issues.

Party Scene: See above answer - there is hardly any partying at all and it's not pervasive

Academics: The professors are extremely willing to help their students and the small class sizes only help that. The curriculum also has a ton of interesting options and sometimes it's hard to not take them all. The registration process is confusing and needs to be better organized and disability access needs to be EXTREMELY expanded to meet more students' needs

Drug Safety: Most people smoke marijuana on campus even though it's not allowed, but other than that everything is really chill and there's not peer pressure at all.

Health & Safety: Thought the campus in generally safe, they need to make security more strict.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I like that the school's mission is social justice. However, they need create awarness of all issues not only sexuality and gender.

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Needs to reach out more about internships and jobs, making sure that every student is stable and ready to enter their career.

Campus Housing: Campus life isn't very social, which can be perk due to less noise.

Athletics: The athletic department needs more funds and diversity.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I like that my school is very liberal, but need work on allyship.

2 College Freshman

Party Scene: Completely non existent. You have to go off campus, which is great, but most 1st and 2nd years don't head out until the weekend.

Party Scene: Again, there is no party scene. It's basically a bunch of you and your friends hanging out in the dorm rooms.

Diversity: It's extremely diverse for the most part, and extremely welcoming. Everyone's political beliefs are clearly liberal though. There could be better official support for some of the ethnic diversities, but the students take care of that.

Drug Safety: Some of the students definitely sneak alcohol, but it's not a major visible thing.

Health & Safety: Between the campus police consistently patrolling and the students all looking out for each other, it's pretty safe. They could do a better job at informing students when an incident does happen though.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Although there are some things that could definitely be bettered (more activities on campus, easier access to study groups, more dining options), if you're aware of the atmosphere when you apply, you get what's advertised. It's nice to have small, hands on classes and close links with your professors. It's also a very liberal college, especially among the students. Pretty welcoming, both with students and professors.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I haven't explored the volunteer/internship options much, but the alumni network is great. Because it's such a small school, and the students and alumni really love to support each other.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Depending on the building, some housing options are better than others. For freshman, it's almost guaranteed that you'll get a single room if you want one. The RA system could be better, because they're usually either too involved or not involved at all.
