Welcome to Sixth College!

Dear Sixers,

By almost any measure, this is an unusual time in our history, a challenge to our resilience and inventiveness. I have faith that our indomitable Sixth spirit, the same that won us the UnOlympics three beautiful times in a row, that makes “Community” the first word Sixers use to describe our college, and that makes you the most fearless people, that spirit will see us through. I hope as you learn the new ways of building community with your classmates and instructors, as you work with staff to make this a truly productive time, that you do so with kindness, compassion, and an eye to the needs of those around you. Remember that social distancing protects not only ourselves but also those among us who are most vulnerable and least able to protect themselves. Remember also, the importance of living and working with integrity does not change no matter where you are. Rest assured that every member of our staff is working inventively and tirelessly to make this quarter every bit the Sixth experience.

Sixth College students are curious, adventurous, fearless people, open to challenge and imagination. Financial support from family, alumni, and friends of Sixth College makes it possible for these intrepid explorers to take on innovative projects at the intersection of culture, art, and technology. We deeply appreciate your help.
