This school is not for everyone. While there are many active clubs on campus, there is very little beyond the high-school, summer camp feel as far as campus activities go. Do not come to Mills if you are looking to go to ragers. But if you are seeking intellectually stimulating conversations, a wide range of feminism/gender politics, and engaging coursework, Mills is the place for you. But if you want to be sane and have fun, don't live on campus.

Mills was a good choice as a transfer institution. Small class sizes, rigorous coursework in the math department, and faculty availability were all good experiences. Even so, Mills has a problem integrating transfer students to its on campus community; I always felt a high level of anomie there. Moreover, classes are really hit and miss. I had super rigorous, challenging and great experiences in Linear Algebra. On the other hand I had a microeconomics course where the teacher told personal stories, graded by dartboard and missed 30% of lectures. Given the opportunity I would not go to Mills again - I would choose an institution with a more consistent quality across courses, more opportunity for extracurricular activity, and better social opportunities.
