2023 Antioch College Reunion
July 13 -16th

We are excited to welcome all classes of alumni back to campus for Reunion. We will be celebrating the 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 together.

We are planning a variety of presentations, engaging conversations, and interactive events to interest alums from every year and discipline. 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 invite them to join you.

Alumni engagement is critical to Antioch’s future–and there is no better way to engage than attending Reunion with your friends and classmates. We look forward to having you back to campus and Yellow Springs!

Volunteer Work Project

The summer 2023 Volunteer Work Project (VWP) for alumni will start Sunday, July 9th with a reception and dinner. Work starts Monday morning and will cover a variety of physical and administrative tasks (e.g. painting, carpentry, vehicle maintenance, event 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.
