4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The college is historically known and offers many avenues through which I can develop my craft and market myself as an artist. The program is prestigious in my field and I believe that with the assistance of mentors, career services, etc., that I will be suited for many positions upon completion of my program.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The location is beautiful, and there are many different options for housing. If you are married or want to live there with your significant other, it's a bit more difficult as there is only one section for families, and priority goes to students with children.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: As an incoming student, I only have my experience in meeting with faculty and graduate students. As far as the program, I have heard nothing but positive feedback from the students. The faculty is most helpful in describing the coursework and expectations attached to the program. Financial aid services are top notch, and I have always been met with knowledgeable individuals who are immensely helpful when it comes to fees, scholarships, and grants.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I have never heard or experienced any crime or safety issues on campus. There are few alerts that there is a mad man running around from the police but no one was harmed and it was shut down quickly. Also I don't really think that happened. The only harassment comes from the EF international students that come during spring semester and they have had lectures explaining that what they were doing was not ok.

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have no idea about any internships or job opportunities but maybe that's because it's just my first year. I also have not actively looked yet.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The classes were always relatively small, there were no big lecture halls or anything like that. It's easy to speak up in class and the teachers are good at facilitating conversations.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I really got lucky with my room this year because I'm the only one in my hall that has wood floors. Each room has its own sink so it's really convenient. I've never had to wait in line for the bathroom. The carpet is not the best and the basement game room and kitchen are the worst so I barely go down there but I wish we had a better kitchen because I like to cook.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: We don't have a varsity team of any kind and we don't have a lot of wins in any of the sports or seasons. There's a few serious athletes but most people just join for fun or for the travel.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: This school suits me really well because there aren't a lot of people and the classes are just challenging enough. I get my own room and I've never had a class bigger than 30. It's very calm and quiet, no big parties which is just my style.

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!

5 College Freshman

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.

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.
