Reunion Committees

Have fun with classmates. Volunteer your skills. Support your alma mater!

Each Mills class celebrates its Reunion every five years during an extended weekend of activities that reconnect alumnae with each other and Mills. Reunioning alumnae volunteers prepare for their own Reunion by working with the College’s Office of Alumnae Relations on Reunion activities, attendance, and fundraising efforts.

Alumnae from class years ending in 4 or 9: It’s your turn!

Reunion 2014 will take place September 18 through 21. Mark your calendar and participate in the Reunion Planning Committee, the Regional Ambassador Program, or the 50th Reunion Committee. Volunteers are needed in the Bay Area and across the country.

To join any of the three volunteer groups below, please contact Nikole Hilgeman Adams, associate director of alumnae outreach, at nhilgeman@mills.edu or 510.430.2229.
