Reunion 2022

No comments

It was an emotional and joyful affair as alumnae ranging from the classes of 1952 to 2022 gathered on the Mills campus from October 6–9 for Reunion 2022. In addition to annual activities such as professor lectures, campus tours, and class dinners, several new programs were introduced this year—including the reinvention of a Mills tradition in which alums carried lanterns to the Mills Hall fountain and joined together for “Fires of Wisdom” and other songs together as a group. Historically, students have kicked off a new school year with this procession; alums have now added their own unique spin to it. 

Reunion will return in future years; mark your calendars now for October 5–8, 2023, as we do it all over again!
