The Campus Closet Is Open

Now officially open, the Antioch College Campus Closet provides an online shopping option for a selection of Antioch College gear, including hoodies, shirts, and mugs. Wakka Ciccone, Antioch College Mailroom and Merchandise Coordinator, set up and runs the online store.

In an email, Ciccone, explained why she started the online store. “I run the on-campus store (which is also the mailroom) and the demand for an online presence was already there. I was getting fairly frequent calls and emails from alumni inquiring about how to order Antioch merchandise.” Her previous solution was emailing them pictures of the merchandise she took with her phone. An official online store streamlined the whole process.

All of the branded merchandise available in the on-campus store is available through the Campus Closet. But, past reunion shirts aren’t available online because of limited size availability.

Currently, orders will be shipped only domestically via USPS Priority and may take five to 10 business days to arrive. If the online store proves successful, Ciccone hopes to enable live shipping, which means UPS and FedEx would also provide shipping.

When asked about future plans for the Campus Closet, Ciccone wrote, “I think my next step will be to add some of the alumni and faculty authored books to the site. I would absolutely like to bring other clothing options online in the future. I've even spoken to some folks about doing limited ‘special edition’ runs of tee shirts. I'm interested in doing some throwback designs, based on past Antioch shirts that are no longer available. I suspect those would go over pretty well!”
