Antioch College President Tom Manley praised the way the college and Yellow Springs, both “extraordinary places,” support one other.
More than 50 Antioch College graduating seniors across all academic divisions are represented in this year’s colloquia, which the college plans to hold as an annual event.
Antioch College presents Colloquia 2017, a showcase of student work. Held on campus now through June 24, all events are free and open to the public.
Antioch College is small. Very small. At just 179 students, and in the process of recruiting a modest-sized class targeted at 60, Antioch today is a considerably smaller institution than college leaders envisioned when Antioch reopened to students in 2011.
27-year-old Kamar Thomas is currently a visiting assistant professor of visual arts at Antioch College. His Herndon Gallery show, titled “Schizomaica”, which features 19 works in oil and charcoal, combines elements of performance, photography and painting.
With 75 years of continuous publication and a knack for picking and publishing a host of vital American voices, the The Antioch Review is a “little magazine” with an undeniably “big” impact and influence.
Starting in the fall of 2017, three incoming students at Antioch College will have all four years of their college experience paid for, thanks to the largesse of a Yellow Springs couple.
The Coretta Scott King Center will present a keynote by Rev. Traci Blackmon, a national voice for social justice, on Tuesday, Jan. 17. The event will be held at 7 p.m. in the Wellness Center.
Those entering the Herndon Gallery’s “Living in Divided States” exhibit will first hear the voices, female and male, rising and falling in pitch, in intensity.
For the first time since reopening to students in 2011, Antioch College is reducing its budget, a move college leaders say is necessary to bring expenses in line with revenues that have grown more slowly than expected.
