Overview

Background

Antioch College is a private liberal arts school located in Yellow Springs, Ohio. Since it was founded in 1850, Antioch College has been committed to social justice and democratic values. It was the first college in the United States to give women the same educational opportunities as men, and was an early promoter of equal education for African Americans. Today, Antioch College continues to provide an inclusive environment within which students can thrive without fear of discrimination based on race, gender, gender expression, sexual orientation, or socioeconomic status.

Antioch College offers both BA and BS degrees for undergraduate students. As a liberal arts college, Antioch College provides students a broad general education in the arts, humanities, sciences, and social sciences. Faculty support student in designing majors in a broad range of disciplinary and interdisciplinary interests. 

A key feature of the Antioch College experience is its Cooperative Education (Co-op) program, which places students in full-time, compensated positions locally, nationally and internationally. The College’s vast alumni network includes educators, artists, jurists, elected officials, community activists, engineers, philanthropists, and more. The Alumni Association is a hub for Antiochians to share job opportunities and connect with one another socially.

A Campus Surrounded by Nature

Set in beautiful Yellow Springs, Antioch College is surrounded by nature. The Glen Helen Nature Preserve sits beside the campus grounds, and was donated to the college by Alumnus Hugh Taylor Birch. The Glen is a natural classroom, where students and the public can learn about the environment and how to live with Earth in mind. It is an outdoor laboratory where ecological and environmental research helps us better understand the world around us.

The Antioch Method: Cooperative Education (Co-op)

Cooperative Education (Co-op) is at the heart of the Antioch College curriculum. This distinctive approach combines classroom learning with direct work and research opportunities at some of Antioch’s many partner organizations around the globe. Experiential education helps ensure that students have a smooth school-to-work transition and equips them with the tools to succeed as soon as they graduate and enter the workforce. In the past, Antioch students have completed their Co-op requirements at partner organizations in the US and countries such as Argentina, Denmark, Ethiopia, Thailand, and New Zealand, among others.

Antioch's Unique Self-designed Major

Antioch students are allowed to design their own majors. After fulfilling the general degree requirements, students tailor their education to their own needs and academic interests. Through their final Capstone Projects, students are encouraged to focus on their unique passions and to become experts in their particular fields. In doing so, many students also take courses in other departments. Through interdisciplinary learning and collaboration, they work with faculty to creatively draw links between fields and advance their research projects in novel ways. Antioch professors are committed to helping students achieve, and the Self-designed Major opportunity fosters collaboration between students and their mentors. 

Vibrant Student Life and Involvement Opportunities

At Antioch College, in addition to being involved in shared governance, students form their own groups around performing arts, political engagement, environmental sustainability, cultural affinity, athletics, and more. These organizations provide opportunities for student leadership and participation. Antioch College also has a large Wellness Center that boasts a competition-length pool, volleyball and tennis courts, and even a therapeutic whirlpool. The Coretta Scott King Center is a hub for campus dialogues around issues of justice, equity, and democracy.

A Wide Array of Financial Aid and Scholarship Opportunities

Antioch College meets full demonstrated financial need for all admitted students. The College awards more than $7 million in financial aid annual, mostly with institutional scholarships and grants. Additionally, Antioch College also has a variety of student employment opportunities on campus. Each semester, Antioch updates its list of available student job postings across the campus. Students can select positions of interest and apply in order to be considered.
