Information

The 2023 Antioch College Reunion returns as an in-person event in Yellow Springs this July 13-16th!

We are excited to welcome back to campus all classes, especially the 50th Anniversary class of 1973. Other anniversary years like the 5th, 25th, and 65th are encouraged to organize your cohorts to return this year to celebrate.

We are planning a variety of presentations, engaging conversations, and interactive events to interest alums from every ear and discipline back to campus. Highlights include:

  • Multigenerational panels on topics such as student activism, the 1973 strike, and queer culture at Antioch
  • A celebration of the Antioch Environmental Field Program and its legacy: Antioch’s trailblazing approach to environmental science and sustainability
  • Cabaret Horace and Div Dance

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!

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!

Volunteer Work Project (VWP)

The summer 2023 Volunteer Work Project will start Sunday, July 9th with a reception and no-host dinner. Work starts Monday morning and will cover a variety of physical and administrative tasks (e.g. painting, carpentry, vehicle maintenance, Reunion preparation, etc.). Most meals during the week will be provided to you.

Your housing will be provided to you for free during your stay through July 13th in West Hall.  If you attend Reunion July 13-16th, you may continue to stay in your West Hall room for free. When you register for Reunion, be sure to select the “Registration without Housing” option.  More VWP details will follow.

Housing

There are three types of housing available for Reunion for 2023:

  • On Campus, Dorm Rooms
  • On Campus, Camping
  • Area Motels & AirBnBs

On Campus, Dorm Rooms:

We have a limited number of on-campus dorm rooms available for guests in North Hall. Please note the following:

  • Housing is sold by the bed, not the room. We will do all we can to accommodate requests for specific roommates (please note on your registration form) or single rooms.
  • North Hall is a mobility-friendly building outfitted with an elevator. All rooms are accessible.

On Campus, Camping:

Camping will be available, free of charge, on the lawn between West Hall and the Coretta Scott King Center (the location of the former Presidents dorms). Please indicate your intention to camp on campus when you register. You must provide your own tent and camping supplies. Restrooms and showers will be available in the Wellness Center for registered guests.
