Enjoy Food That Is Good for You & for the Planet

In its annual list of the Best Colleges for Food in America, The Daily Meal ranks Mills near the very top. The campus dining options are not only delicious, but also environmentally sustainable. Much of their food is made with seasonal ingredients from local farms (including their own Mills Community Farm), so their chefs can maximize flavor and nutritional value.


Activity Spaces for Girls Leadership Traditions

This summer, Girls Leadership will have access to the Mills College pool and theater. We’ll also enjoy many open spaces for fun activities like our dance parties, treasure hunts, and olympiad.
