  2024 Antioch College Reunion
June 27-30th

Antiochians of all generations are invited back to campus for the 2024 Antioch College Reunion on June 27-30th!

We are excited to welcome all classes back to Campus, especially the 50th class of 1974. Other anniversary years like the 5th (2019), 20th (2004), 25th (1999) and 65th (1959) are encouraged to organize your cohort to return this year!

We are planning a variety of presentations, intentional conversations, and interactive events to attract alums from every discipline back to Campus.

  • Many filmmakers, videographers, radio hosts, social media influencers, and other media producers are planning to attend to celebrate the history of media at Antioch.
  • There will be panels on current issues like the impact of AI on education and the workforce, Antioch’s filmmakers, and the incredible impact of the Volunteer Work Project as a model for serving the community and engaging alumni.
  • You’ll hear from President Jane Fernandes at the College Address, and hear about the incredible work of our alumni at the award presentations.

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 join you!

We can’t wait to welcome you back to Campus and Yellow Springs. Alumni are instrumental to Antioch’s future, and there is no better way to engage than attending Reunion with your friends and classmates!

Volunteer Work Project

The summer 2024 Volunteer Work Project (VWP) for alumni will start Sunday, June 23rd with a reception. 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 the work week in Case Commons.  If you attend Reunion, you may continue to stay in your room for free.

You’ll need to register for both Reunion and VWP separately. Since you’ll already have housing for the weekend, when you register for Reunion you can select a Basic Package (also tick VWP). Or you can register A la Carte with programming and add on your meals.

Register for Volunteer Work Project.
