This is not really a residential college. Many students commute or live off campus. There is almost NO activity on the weekends. The dormitories are deserted and completely quiet on the weekends. All dorm rooms are singles which limits interaction even more among those who do stay on campus.

The surrounding area is completely unsafe for walking and there is no decent shopping or nightlife. All students have to go to Berkeley or into San Francisco to socialize. (I am not a partier, so I am not talking about finding parties—just something to do with other people.)

Academics are excellent, although the caliber of students is uneven.

This is a great school if you can go home on the weekends or if you already have an established life in the Bay Area. It is NOT a good choice for students from outside the Bay Area, unless that student is extremely mature, independent, and self-reliant.

Warning—before you decide to attend Mills, spend a weekend there.
