When will Reunion times be published?
A detailed schedule, including times and activities not yet listed on the Reunion website, will be posted here in August. We'll send you Reunion updates through the (e)ucalyptus, our email newsletter. (Make sure we have your correct email address by logging in to the alumnae community and updating your information.)
In the meantime, a printed brochure that reflects all of the currently available information will be mailed in June to alumnae from class years ending in 3 and 8 and many alumnae in the Bay Area. If you would like to receive the brochure, please call Alumnae Relations at 510.430.2123 or send an email to email@example.com with "Reunion brochure" in the subject line and let us know your full name as a student and current name (if different), your class year, phone number, and mailing address.
I'm a graduate alumna/us of Mills. Can I also attend Reunion events?
