I'm Jillian Johnson, admission counselor and campus visit coordinator at Antioch College in Yellow Springs, Ohio. Antioch College is a small, private, academically rigorous college that takes an innovative approach to the liberal arts. We emphasize interdisciplinary and experiential learning, and all of our students engage in four Co-ops (full time work experiences) over their four years of study. Through Co-op and our rigorous experiential curriculum, Antioch students are empowered as agents of change prepared to tackle local, national, and global issues.
Originally founded in 1850, Antioch College closed for three years and reopened in 2011, so students who join our community in the next few years have the unique chance to help rebuild a 160-year-old liberal arts college. This opportunity is not for everyone, but I know that as pioneers at your own recently opened school, you understand the great rewards that can come from helping an institution chart new territory.
If you're interested in learning more about Antioch College, I encourage you
