What Students Are Saying

4.02 Average Rating
Beautiful, tranquil, and supportive. Mills College is the absolute place to be for women looking to succeed in both academics and in the real world future that lies ahead. Cyclone ladies get all the benefits of a big school with highly qualified professors, visiting lectures, and their own museum; with all the benefits of a small school including tiny class sizes and personal attention.
Elizabeth from Citrus Heights, CA
Mills College combines beautiful scenery, with progressive thinking and social justice. This all women college reminds us of the importance of having goals and an action plan. All the staff and teachers are supportive and as eager as the students.
