3. Who’s that girl?—Millie the Dancing Bear

Barnard has a mascot. Millie the Dancing Bear, now 15 years old, is named after Barnard’s first President Millicent McIntosh. She is notable for her boldness, playfulness, furriness and talented dance moves. Millie serves to promote school spirit on campus and loves wearing Barnard attire, especially during Barnard social events like Big Sub, WinterFest, or Founder’s Day. She enjoys interacting with students, whether it is taking pictures with students, dancing with students, or being a helping hand.

Millie is very well-known around campus—she even has a manager. Multiple students are able to be Millie, and this is a huge honor. Millie’s reveal takes place at the end of the year, which is coming up!
