Family Weekend

Each year, Mills College invites friends and families to campus for Family Weekend, an opportunity for us to share a taste of campus life and welcome you to the Mills community. This year, Family Weekend will be September 15–17, 2017.

Special events at Family Weekend include Convocation, a traditional ceremony celebrating the new academic year, and the 50th Anniversary of the Mills College Chapel. Throughout the weekend, you are also invited to attend the College Update with President Hillman, explore campus through tours, cheer on the Cyclones at athletic events, experience our renowned arts community firsthand, and more. See the tentative schedule of events.

To give us a better idea of who will be attending, we ask that Family Weekend guests complete a short registration form. There is no registration fee and all events (except meals) are free to attend.
