Cardigan Exchange Dec-08 to Jan-26

Hey students! Since the weather's been getting nippy, and our uniform cardigans have a tendency to wear out after a while, the senior class wanted to let you guys know that there is a cardigan exchange policy at Mills. If your cardigan is ripped or worn out on the sleeves, you can take it to Mills, where you purchased it originally, and exchange it for a new one free of charge.  This hasn't been very publicized, so we wanted to let you know!  Speak to Dean Chinen for more details. Stay warm this holiday season- love the seniors.
