Flowers For Your Graduate! 

With a vision of equal education and opportunity for women, missionaries Cyrus and Susan Mills moved from Hawaii, bought The Young Ladies Seminary in 1865, and renamed it Mills College. In keeping with this Hawaiian connection, many graduates wear the traditional Hawaiian lei during the graduation ceremony.

Flowers that will be available on a first come first served basis are: small and large rose bouquets, double orchid leis, and graduation bears. Photos of these items may be viewed at Blossom Express.  Costs range from $20-$40. The flower table will be located at Suzanne Adams Plaza at Rothwell Center adjacent to the commencement event site on Holmgren Meadow.
