Hey Rams! Can you believe it’s been 50 years since we left Millikan High School?

Last updated: Apr 4, 2023

To remember our high school years together, the Class of 1973 Reunion Committee has planned a great reunion celebration.


September 30, 2023


Avenue of the Arts Hotel in Costa Mesa
3350 Avenue of the Arts (map)

The hotel is across the street from South Coast Plaza Mall, and John Wayne Orange County Airport is within 5 miles for those of you coming into Southern California. All reunion events are within walking distance from the hotel. 


The reunion begins with a no-host reception at 6:00PM, followed by a three course steak dinner (chicken and veg options available) with wine included.  It will be a great evening to see old friends and remember our time together at Millikan.


Because of payment requirements for the hotel, it is critically important for everyone to register as soon as possible.

Want to stay at the hotel? Avenue of the Arts Hotel is holding a block of rooms at a special discounted rate of $179 until our block of rooms are sold. Book your room as soon as possible because rooms are limited.

Optional events

In addition to the reunion itself, a welcoming happy hour reception on September 29th, and a brunch on October 1st are also being planned depending on the number of reunion signups.

We're also embarking on a 5-day cruise from Long Beach to Cabo San Lucas for October 3-8 (details below). From our recent survey responses, we already have 20 parties interested in going on the cruise.

We can’t wait to see YOU! Tell your friends and spread the word. Those who are Class of 73 adjacent are also warmly invited!  It will be the best Class of 1973 reunion ever!
