2017 Mills College Commencement
Congratulations to the Class of 2017!
The 129th Commencement at Mills College will be held on Saturday, May 13, 2017. With this ceremony the College recognizes the achievements of its students and confers upon them the rights, privileges, and responsibilities of a Mills degree. The dignity and customs of this historic ceremony are rooted in medieval times, when colleges and universities developed methods and standards for marking progress in knowledge and professionalism.
In keeping with this tradition, the Mills Commencement ceremony will begin on Holmgren Meadow promptly at 9:45 am and end at approximately 12:00 pm, with an academic procession of Mills graduating students, alumnae/i, faculty, Trustees, the President's Cabinet, and honored guests. The program will include remarks by President Elizabeth L. Hillman, the Commencement address, student speakers, and the conferring of degrees.
The traditional farewell reception for graduating students, alumnae/i, faculty, and guests, held on the Art Museum Meadow, will follow the Commencement ceremony.
A DVD of the 2017 Commencement ceremony will be available for purchase.
NOTE: Comments or questions regarding Commencement may be addressed to Annie Labe unless you previously have been directed to another Mills contact.
