Antioch College admits first students
- Published: February 24, 2011
Antioch College recently admitted four out of the college’s first class of 25 students who will come to campus next fall. The college has been getting ready for its first class since it was revived as a liberal arts college in September, 2009, after an alumni group successfully gained independence for the college from Antioch University.
“We continue to attract some of the most talented and community-minded graduates,” Special Assistant to the President for Enrollment Kristen Pett said in a recent interview.
The first four students — two from Ohio and two from Texas — were admitted during the college’s early admission process. Students can still apply through the regular admission process, which has a March 1 deadline. The college will notify those accepted by April 1, according to Pett, and students then have until May 1 to accept.
Applications are currently coming in from across the country, Pett said, with an especially strong showing from Ohio, New York and California.
All of the entering class of 25 will be awarded Horace Mann Fellowships. Tuition is free for four years, and there is also possible grant money available for room and board fees. The fellowships also include mentoring from Antioch College alumni.
