Major media outlets—including the New York Times, Forbes, Popular Mechanics, Movoto, and Thrillist—have ranked Oakland among the best cities in America. Our students take full advantage of this, enjoying the First Friday gallery crawls, hiking through the East Bay hills at Redwood Regional Park, and sharing a snack from the best gourmet food trucks around.
And Mills students don’t limit themselves to Oakland. They explore all the Bay Area
has to offer:
International cuisine—from authentic Asian to vegan Ethiopian to fall-off-the-bone barbecue
Outdoor adventures—including Lake Chabot, Ocean Beach, Muir Woods, and the Golden Gate Bridge
Pro sports games—with six local teams including the NBA champion Golden State Warriors and the San Francisco Giants
Science and learning centers—ranging from the California Academy of Sciences to Chabot Space & Science Center to the Tech Museum of Innovation
World-class museums—like the Computer History Museum, de Young Museum, and San Francisco Museum of Modern Art
