Class of 2021: Six Word Memoirs

Following the tradition established by Claremont McKenna seniors many years before us, the Class of 2021 presents its six-word memoirs. In a virtual senior year ravaged by the COVID-19 global pandemic, we were able to collect more responses than ever before. Our conclusion? The Class of 2021 is more resilient and cohesive than we ever could have imagined. From sentimental on-campus activities to insatiable hunger and thirst during late nights to complete inside-joke gibberish, we present the concise, yet all-encompassing quotes from the senior class of 2021.



To whom it may concern, please remember us for our fun-loving, work-hard, and positive attitudes. We didn’t deserve a senior year like this, but we made the most of it. Goodbyes are not forever. We will be back soon. Compiled by David Ying ’21.
