Inaugurated at the dawn of a new century, Sixth College prepares its students to become dynamic and engaged citizens of the 21st century-innovative, creative and interconnected.
The core academic programs of Sixth College develop skills in both traditional and emergent media literacy, emphasizing essential writing fundamentals as well as the latest forms of digital communication.
The academic advising mission at Sixth College is to develop personal and caring relationships with students and to help them achieve their educational, career, and life goals. Academic advising is an intentional educational partnership between advisors and students and is a process that considers and respects students' diverse backgrounds, interests, and abilities.
The Sixth College core academic program focuses on Culture, Art and Technology. In this program, students take an interdisciplinary look at how the things we humans make-specifically, art and technology-reflect what we believe and value, focus our attention, and alter our environment. Our partnership with ArtPower! in creating our Arts6 program helps students explore these themes. Students at Sixth College also participate in the upper-division Practicum. The goal of the Practicum is to have students build bridges to local and global communities, engaging students in communal work, and fostering an ethical obligation to service.
The Sixth College Student Affairs team works with students to develop experiences that support classroom efforts as well as expand learning opportunities outside the walls of the classroom by providing activities and services that enhance the student experience. The Student Affairs staff aims to foster student growth and development that will prepare students to become effective citizens in the 21st century, help students build a college community that supports individual creativity and expression, increase students' understanding and appreciation of human differences and foster a learning environment for every Sixth College community member.
Living on campus is an integral part of a Sixth College residents' education. Living in the apartments and residence halls provides a wonderful opportunity to meet new people, learn about new cultures, develop life skills that will extend beyond the college years, develop respect and caring for others, make responsible lifestyle choices and decisions, share academic, social, and cultural experiences with other students, and learn to live peacefully in close quarters with a diverse group of people.
Sixth College has several annual traditions for students to participate in such as Winter GameFest, Semi-Formal, C.H.A.O.S, Spirit of the Masters, Let It Flow, Kuncocshun, Digital Film Festival and the Chocolate Festival just to name a few.
