Sixth College students enjoyed a late night with Conan

To mark the 10th anniversary of UC San Diego’s Sixth College, late-night TV talk show host Conan O’Brien visited the Sixth College Lodge for a meet-and-greet event Friday, April 20, prior to a performance at RIMAC Arena.

Sixth College Provost Dan Donoghue remarked that “with this special appearance by a true American celebrity, all Sixth College students, faculty and staff had the opportunity to celebrate our college theme of culture, art and technology with humor.”

Sixth College was also be renamed “Conan O’Brien College” (including on its Internet homepage) for the day of O’Brien’s appearance.

“I am honoring my pledge to appear at any college that names itself after me,” O’Brien quipped. “Your move, Yale.”

A Harvard graduate, O’Brien’s writing credits include “Saturday Night Live” and “The Simpsons.” From 1993 to 2009 he hosted Emmy Award-winning “Late Night” on NBC. His current show, “Conan,” premiered Nov. 8, 2010 on TBS.
