To minimize risk for our community during the COVID-19 healthcare crisis and to limit the number of people on campus, Mills is currently closed to visitors. As part of the College's recovery process, we are planning to reopen the campus on a limited basis to students, faculty, and essential staff for the 2020-21 academic year. We will be restricting the number of campus buildings that are reopen to ensure proper disinfection and sanitization procedures can occur. Note: Reinhardt Alumnae House will not be open to the public until further notice.
We would like to thank alumnae who have contributed their time and their money to help Mills during this crisis. The handmade masks that you sent to students this spring were both a much-needed gift and a spirit-raiser. The $75,000 you contributed to the student hardship fund has helped hundreds of students make ends meet during an incredibly difficult situation. We appreciate your generosity of time, money, and commitment to Mills.
Based on State of California and Alameda County health mandates on public gatherings, Mills regrettably was forced to reschedule this year’s in-person celebration to next year, September 23–26, 2021, when we will honor members of class years ending in 0 or 5 as they gather with the 1s and 6s for a joint Reunion. Save the dates for a doubly festive return to campus!
In the meantime, we were pleased to welcome alumnae to join us for our firstvirtual Reunion 2020. To receive notices about upcoming virtual activities, please make sure your information is up to date in the alumnae community and that you have not opted out of receiving Reunion messages (check your Subscriptions Management section).
While we may not be able to see you in person, we do want to let you know what's happening at Mills. We have a variety of virtual communications channels you can access, including:
