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.

We invite you to experience Convocation, a traditional ceremony celebrating the new academic year; 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. To get a sense of typical Family Weekend activities, see our 2018 schedule.
