4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love Mills. My education is worthwhile, I've met wonderful people, and I feel comfortable expressing my opinions. Financial Aid is a bit of a mess. They are not clear about due dates, how to complete and when to complete certain documents, and you can never get ahold of someone in the M center. They don't answer questions thouroughly and with detail. That would be the only center on campus I don't appreciate.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I'm excited about my degree. We have resources on campus to help make decisions about careers and where to take our education. There are many opportunities for internships on campus all the time. Especially in the Graduate School of Business. I feel as though job and internship opportunities are well advertised in the building.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Security on campus is a little lax but it's a great deterrent to see a guard gate at the front of the school. Public safety takes a while sometimes to respond to issues.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I have enjoyed the ability to have a single room and not have it be crazy expensive. Each room is unique and I appreciate that.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: We are a divison 3 sports school, so there is not an emphasis on sports. I enjoy watching them and helping to participate in cheering my teams on, but I understand that the focus of Mills is on academics.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I really enjoy the politically and socially active atmosphere on campus. Every student has some passion or a want for a level of involvement in the outside community. I have enjoyed all of my classes, but particularly those in the economics department. I feel prepared for my degree.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Transferred halfway through my sophomore year and have been so happy.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Still in school, I feel well prepared but the prospect of a job hunt after school sounds a bit scary.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Accessible services if student seeks them out.

5 College Junior

Campus Housing: Dorms are so nice, a great option for students.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Pretty good, not the best, but enough for a school gym

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: All classes are thoroughly enjoyable

1 College Junior

Overall Experience: This school is the opposite of everything it purports to stand for. I can tell you from personal experience that Mills's social justice mission statement isn't so much a genuine statement of purpose as a steaming pile of bulls*** designed to attract more students in hopes of reversing the school's massive debt crisis. I was (wrongfully) accused by another student of violating the school's code of conduct. With no evidence and no investigation, they charged me with that violation, threatened to expel me, and forced me to move out of my dorm for over a week. Eventually, they allowed me to return to my living space, but they admitted no wrongdoing on their part, and handed out no consequences to the person who falsely accused me. I tried to put it behind me, determined to move forward with the good friends I'd made and the few good experiences I'd had at Mills. Over the summer I received notice that my scholarship was no longer being incorporated into my financial aid package, making me unable to attend. All emails and calls I've made to the M Center have been met with radio silence.As if the administrative problems weren't enough, dealing with the student accounts and financial aid offices at Mills are a nightmare. I've heard of second semester seniors being automatically dropped from their classes and locked out of their dorms for failing to pay an intersession registration fee. The incompetence of the M Center is notorious, and most students avoid dealing with it altogether.A few of my professors have been amazing, but most have ranged from mediocre to just alright. Devastating budget cuts to the letters department have left them with three--yes, three--full time professors. Mills offers three foreign languages (but only two foreign language degrees, French and Spanish), unlike most "top tier" liberal arts colleges, which offer as many as ten.

Overall Experience: Most people I know who have gotten well-paying jobs relevant to their degrees have had to seek out those opportunities on their own, with next to no help from Mills.

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.

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.
