2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: If I could make my college choice again, I WOULD NOT HAVE COME TO MILLS COLLEGE. Don't make the mistake I made. This school does the total opposite of what they claim to stand for. There are so many cliques on campus and the majority of the students are very weird. This is a school where 'outsiders' in high school come together to find friends. Since this is an all women's college, people just talk sh*t about other people. There is a lot of drama and people get irritated of each other very quickly.

Overall Experience: If you look for them, you can find them. However, this goes for any school. If you really want something, try hard and you can definitely find opportunities.

1 College Freshman

Greek Life: There is only one sorority on campus but no one really considers it greek life. This sorority accepts anyone.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletic teams here are not very good. But individual sports are good if you like playing individually. If you don't like losing, don't play a team sport.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Lakeshore and UC Berkeley is very convenient to find places to eat.

3 College Freshman

Administration: I don'y really talk to administration very much so I haven't had any difficulty with them. However, some people have had very negative interactions with administration.

1 College Freshman

Party Scene: THIS CAMPUS IS EXTREMELY DRY.

There is some drinking but rarely.

Also, it is not fun to only drink with girls all the time.

I HATE THIS SCHOOL

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Financial aid is actually great. However, over the years they decrease your financial aid & they INCREASE TUITION EVERY YEAR! I don't even understand why they increase tuition because they use majority of it to landscape campus and don't use it on the students.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Founders is okay. Food gets worse throughout the year and they serve the same thing majority of the time. Also, sometimes they use left overs and its really disgusting. However, weekend brunch is amazing!

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It's actually great! Majority of the students have their own room, which also includes a sink!

A lot of privacy and it is usually pretty quiet throughout the day. Not many disturbances.

Off-Campus Dining: Oakland has a great restaurant scene.

Administration: So far it's been really good if a little slow.

Scholarships: I was automatically awarded an independent scholarship. Working on more now.

Campus Food: Really truly impressive for a school dining plan. The only place I've been that was better was Apple's cafe at 1 infinite loop!

Diversity: You will meet people from all walks of life -- Mills does a lot to embrace the diversity of students, but these efforts are not always perfect.

5 College Freshman

Academics: Absolutely amazing professors, awesome classes, easy online registration. Prepare to be challenged.

5 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Eclectic and lovely variety of buildings -- lots of grassy and green areas. While Mills is fairly laid back there are plenty of fun things to do on and off campus; consider stopping by the Solidarity Lounge or grabbing a ticket to the Black and White Ball.

5 College Freshman

Local Area: The area right outside of campus is fairly sketchy -- wouldn't want to go out after dark. However, other parts of Oakland and Berkeley are only a bus ride away, and the campus bus can get you to a BART station in no time. Trust me: you'll love the Bay Area.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Wonderful and lovely people of all genders on campus -- no cis guys in undergrad.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: So many great places to eat off campus -- whether you go to Lakeshore, Fruitvale, Downtown or to a food truck.

5 College Freshman

Administration: Public Safety makes sure everyone is protected (and in their rooms!) on campus; Mills is also pretty strict on academic issues as well.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Expensive but definitely worth it for the Tea Shop, where you can grab breakfast, sandwiches, burgers, salads etc. If you're not in the mood for Tea Shop prices, Founders usually offers fresh meals. It can be very good or very bad depending on many factors, but you'll figure out what you like and what you don't after a couple of months. (If you don't like anything, there's always soup, salad, cereal and toast.) It is a good idea to know how to make some simple meals in your dorm or in the kitchen -- while you will like some of the campus food, choices can sometimes be limited.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Most first-years live either in Warren Olney or Orchard Meadow -- and many are able to have rooms to themselves! Olney's rooms are cozy, plus they have hardwood floors. You may find that you will need to add in (or take out) a few things to make the room presentable after moving in. There is also a rec room where you can cook, buy snacks, lounge, or watch movies/TV with friends -- and thanks to the LLC system, it isn't hard at all to make friends with your dormmates.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The academics are fantastic and Mills offers as much opportunity to their students as possible for securing job options.

Guys & Girls: If you're a single LGBTQ-oriented person, then this school is great for you. Otherwise, straight women utilize other methods to find people to date. It's not bad, as the surrounding colleges and Bay Area have very attractive men in general.
