Student Life at Antioch - the Basics

Student Life Community life at Antioch College is what you make of it. Students get involved with committees, go on amazing co-ops, plan activities, and take classes with professors with wide-ranging experiences and world views.

On campus, students have a lot of freedom to determine their own extra- and co-curricular activities. Traditionally, Antioch College students have formed independent groups around specific political or personal interests. Any community member can start an independent group at Antioch. These groups can exist intermittently or for only one term. Others can be permanent presences on campus.

Each generation of Antiochians has created groups to serve their particular interests. In recent years, these have included independent student publications, events, arts and theater, and intramural athletics.

The campus is within walking distance of downtown Yellow Springs. Even with a population of less than 4,000, the Village 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 just 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.
