Small, Engaging Classes

Vibrant Campus Environment
Mills attracts a diverse array of world-class speakers and performers to campus. Thanks to the intentionally small size of these events, Mills students often interact with these distinguished guests before, during, and after events. In addition, Mills' dedicated alumnae are an integral part of the life of the College, participating in activities and sharing their professional expertise. Since so many Mills graduates have gone on to success in their areas of study, this network and influence can be far-reaching.
Located in the heart of the San Francisco Bay Area, Mills is intricately connected to the community. Professors and students work in the neighboring cities and bring their experience and knowledge into the classroom. Faculty encourage students to get involved with the local artistic and scholarly scenes, so that students connect with a broader community and expand their opportunities for intellectual and professional growth.
