Conan O'Brien College
On April 20, 2012, late-night talk show host Conan O'Brien visited Sixth College in honor of its tenth anniversary. To celebrate the occasion, and in absence of a permanent name, Sixth College renamed itself to Conan O'Brien College for the day every year on April 20.

Year-Round

Concerts in Close Quarters

Enjoy world class chamber music in a unique setting. Twice a year, world-class artists perform specifically for Sixth College students, and then interact with them in informal settings. Past performers include world renowned percussionist Cyro Baptista, who helped break down the barrier between audience and artist through participation, discussion and observation.

Café Commute
Hosted by the SCSC Commuter Senator, Café Commute is a place to chat about classes, your traffic proof route to campus or anything that’s on your mind. Enjoy a free tasty treat with fellow commuters in the Sixth College Commuter Lounge before hitting the road.

VPC Lecture Series
Once a quarter, the Video Production Club screens an independent film and invites a guest lecturer to discuss the impact of the lecture on culture, art and technology. Past discussions have centered around minority racialization in the media and its impact on young people.

Coffee/ Dine with a Professor
