Reunion 2022

MARCH On! Antioch College Reunion July 14-17, 2022

The 2022 Antioch College Reunion will return as an in-person event in Yellow Springs this July 14-17th!

We are so excited to welcome back to campus all classes especially the 50th class of 1972 (plus 1971 and 1970 who missed their 50th in-person reunions due to the pandemic). Other anniversary years like the 5th, 25th and 65th are encouraged to organize your cohort to return this year!

We are planning a variety of presentations, scintillating conversations and interactive events to entice alums from every discipline back to Campus. (See the Preliminary Schedule for details.)

  • Many dancer/choreographers are planning participatory dance events.
  • There’ll be panels on current issues like how to address right wing attacks on public education (a threat to Horace Mann’s legacy), how to develop livable communities using Yellow Springs as an object lesson, and the impact your Antioch experience had on your life.
  • Scott Sanders, head of Antiochiana, will give us a historical tour of Campus and Peter Townsend, emeritus Geology faculty, will give us a photographic tour of the Glen as well as an actual walk.
  • WYSO will interview selected alums about your life’s work,
  • We’re planning a funeral for the Student Union (The Stoop will remain!)
  • And Div Dance will be DJ’d by Clean Gene Lohman and Shane Creepingbear!
  • Plus all the important opportunities to meet the new president, Jane Fernandes, hear the Alumni Awardees presentations and so much more!

Of course the best part of Reunion is the opportunity to reconnect with your friends. We encourage you to reach out to your classmates and get them to register!

Due to COVID protocols we are limiting registration to 250 spots at this time, so don’t hesitate. We have dorm rooms available and area hotel rooms are on hold.

We can’t wait to welcome you back to Campus and Yellow Springs. We need your involvement in Antioch and there is no better way to engage than attending Reunion and the Volunteer Work Project (See details attached) scheduled for July 10-14th.
