    Don't let the news scare you -- there are plenty of things to do in Oakland! The closest sports complex is a bus or BART ride away, and so is Downtown Oakland. There is also a shuttle that stops at the edge of UC Berkeley's campus.

    One can walk around campus with friends, take a jog on the running trails, visit the Tea Shop, lie down on the grass in front of Mills Hall and read, get involved in sports and clubs, and attend events.

    Mills really has a lot to offer as there are a lot of talented students in the arts. There is an art museum on campus, as well as a theater, and a music hall, and there are also poetry and prose readings. Again, it is not a party school, but the college shuttle does go right to Berkeley where there is a lot to do, and BART which can take you almost anywhere in the bay area so San Francisco is always an option as well.

    There's nothing much to do in Oakland and its not exactly the friendliest neighborhood, but the Mills shuttle goes to Berkeley where there are loads of darling shops, cafes and street fairs on weekends. There's The City too of course which is just a stone's throw away.

    San Francisco is just a little ways away! In the sity, there are many places to go such as Pier 39, China Town, Union Square, Alcatraz, and much much more. Berkeley is also not too far away and offers a wide range of entertaining, dining, etc.

    Berkeley is a (free) shuttle away. There is always something to do if you bored right in dorms, too: take, for instance, mattress surfing down three flights of stairs! Did that!

    There is a bus which takes students straight from the college campus to the financial district in San Francisco, not far from the Embarcadero. Also, First Friday the art murmur is accessible by bus each month.

    Hang out at Mills. There is always something going on. Visit the neighboring communities. Berkeley and San Francisco are also close and fun to explore.
