Immerse Yourself in Community
It’s not that Antioch College (founded in 1850) or its home of Yellow Springs, Ohio (founded in 1825) are new. It’s that both are constantly being made new by the vibrant spirit of this place.
Student life on campus is what you make of it. It’s common for students to form their own groups around performing arts, political engagement, athletics, you name it. Our campus is never the same from year to year because of the unique contributions each new class makes.
The village of Yellow Springs, from the cultural diversity of shops, galleries, food and drink and festivals downtown, to the natural beauty of hiking trails through the Glen Helen Nature Preserve, the John Bryan State Park and Clifton Gorge, is a wonderful extension of campus life.
“I think the farm is a really exciting space to try things, to say I have an idea, I don’t really know if it will work or not but I want to try it. I think there’s a lot of support on the farm for learning by doing … which is really exciting to have at a college.”
Antioch Farm & Kitchen
LOCAL. SUSTAINABLE. DELICIOUS.
Antioch’s sustainable food system starts at Antioch Farm, a working farm and learning laboratory. It allows students to experience, explore and develop methods of sustainability.
Antioch Kitchens uses food sourced from Antioch Farm and other local farms to provide quality meals to campus, and caters to the surrounding community.
PARTICIPATE. ENGAGE. REPRESENT.
As a “laboratory for democracy,” Community Governance—designed to provide an operating structure of genuine self-government, based upon the widest achievable participation—acts as a pedagogical tool by giving participants the skills necessary to effect change in the world.
