Resuming Student Life

The Mills student body is a richly diverse population including many resuming students. Undergraduate commuting and residential students who are 23 years of age or older are considered "resumers" and are members of the Mary Atkins community. These are often students who are returning to college after a break in their formal education.

Many resuming students are very involved in campus activities and participate in ASMC government boards and committees, as well as social events and educational programs.

Mary Atkins Lounge

The Mary Atkins Lounge, located in Rothwell Center, provides a space for undergraduate resuming students to find community at Mills. The lounge, with comfy chairs and sofas and a full kitchen, makes a great place to study, take a break, and connect with other resuming students. Resumers also have access to an adjacent locker room with bathrooms and showers.

The lounge is staffed by the Mary Atkins Community Assistant,MaryAtkinsAssistant@mills.edu, from the Office of Student Activities who oversees the space, updates resource information, and organizes social activities including Community Meetings and the Mary Atkins Toast.
