Winter 2021 Guide
Preparing for a safe and healthy Winter Quarter
Antioch College will offer a flexible educational model for Winter 2021, offering students the option to engage in distance learning or in-person classes, as well as the option to live on campus. The Winter 2021 Guide provides information for the health and safety of our entire community. It is up to each of us to conscientiously do our part.
Antioch’s Winter 2021 Quarter will proceed as scheduled with classes starting Monday, January 11 and concluding Friday, March 26.
All classes, (except labs, studio, and experiential classes) will be held online for the first week of the term in order to protect the community from potential Coronavirus exposure experienced during travel to campus. Those classes which may need to meet in person have been identified by Academic Affairs, and all precautions previously taken during fall quarter for courses meeting in person will remain in place.
We continue to monitor the public health situation on a national, state and local level including advisories and mandates, and we must all be prepared to be flexible and and ready to adapt to potential changes. As a small community, Antioch’s size makes us especially well-suited to be nimble and responsive. By working together, and trusting our community to act responsibly, we can all move forward together to bring our community back to campus in a safe and responsible manner.
