Sixth College Town Hall Meeting

 Curious as to what the Sixth new environment will look like, what amenities it has, how much green space there is, what the residents rooms look like, how many rooms have ocean views,  whether we will get better food options…etc.? We have answers!

Come to the Sixth College Student Town Hall on Wednesday October 9th and we will answer any questions we can, share updates on progress, move in dates, etc. We also want to get feedback from you on potential programming around the move – programs to celebrate the new space and programs to celebrate the one we leave behind. You have more ideas than we ever could. To fuel that conversation, we will provide food.

Come out to Price Center Theatre from 4:30pm-5:30pm and 6pm-7pm on Wednesday October 9th
