    Antioch College’s new class gathered on the steps of Main Hall this week for their first group photo. Twenty-eight strong (most of whom appear above), the class is notably diverse. They hail from 10 states, have varied interests and almost half are students of color. (Photo by Audrey Hackett)

    Rafael Flores said he felt comfortable leaving his son at Antioch — except for one thing. “I don’t want to leave. I want to come here,” he said, smiling.

  • Quarry opposition enters new phase
