Student Life at Antioch: The Basics

Student Life at Antioch happens in and out of the classroom, in the local community, and is what you make of it. Students get involved with committees, get real-life work experience through their co-ops, plan activities, and take classes taught by professors with wide-ranging world views. Throughout their years at Antioch, students engage with capable, motivated, passionate and interesting people.

On campus, students determine several of their own extra- and co-curricular activities, and also attend those planned by various departments and local entities. Traditionally, Antioch College students have formed independent groups around specific political or personal interests. In recent years, these have included independent student publications, events, visual and performing arts, and intramural athletics.

The campus is within walking distance of downtown Yellow Springs. The Village of Yellow Springs is nationally known as a vibrant arts community, with many art and cultural events. There is also the Glen Helen Nature Preserve, 1,000 acres of quiet peacefulness across the street from campus. The Glen includes woods, open fields, streams, and wetlands that were gifted to the College by alumnus Hugh Taylor Birch.
