Student Activism and Admission

In the wake of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., students across the country have used multiple tactics — including walk-outs and other peaceful protests — to voice their fears, frustrations, and anger. While such activity or related behaviors on social media could result in disciplinary actions at some secondary schools, they will have no adverse affect on Antioch College’s admission decisions.

Antioch College’s first president, Horace Mann, counseled the graduates of the first class to “win some victory for humanity.” Those words remain at the heart Antioch’s purpose, which is to provide students with a space from which they can own their education and build a foundation for winning many such victories over a lifetime.
