My first year at Mills was only my second year in the United States—everything was new to me. Thanks to the small class sizes, I’ve gotten to actually know my professors. We’ve developed a deep trust where I feel comfortable asking academic questions, career questions, and even questions about big life choices.Stacy, Undergraduate Student, Jiaxing, China
