The history of the Mills mascot

Mascots are a talisman of pride in social, professional and educational arenas. But in the world of athletics, sports teams also designate power and intimidation to their mascots, even in the most unlikely figures. Some colleges and universities choose panthers or knights, while others choose mascots that don't seem to carry the same clout.

Theater once thriving, now unused

Once a stage for Mills traditions, Greek tragedies and community involvement, the 80-year-old Greek theater behind the Music Building is now closed-off and eroding.

Graffiti is flaunted on its stage walls. Remnants of art projects, empty liquor bottles, what appear to be small bon-fire ashes, and previously, a shopping cart, have come to decorate the cracked stage and steps of the traditional Greek-styled, open-air theater.
