New students to arrive at Antioch College
- Published: September 22, 2011
The first class of the revived Antioch College will arrive on campus this Saturday, Sept. 24, for a 10-day orientation before classes begin Tuesday, Oct. 4. The class of 35 includes young people from all over the country, including several from the Yellow Springs area.
On Sunday, Sept. 25, the students will begin a two-day retreat on community-building at the Outdoor Education Center in Glen Helen with faculty and some college staff. Along with the traditional Antioch College practice of community governance, community will be integrated into various segments of campus life, including students cooking together and working together on the Antioch College farm, according to Dean of Community Life Louise Smith.
When classes begin Oct. 4, all students will take a Global Seminar, an interdisciplinary class with a sustainability focus. This quarter’s seminar will focus on water, and be taught by chemist David Kammler and philosopher Lewis Trelawny-Cassity. Students will also take a language and a foundation course, or three courses in all during the first quarter.
