Open House for Admitted Students
April 17, 2011 – Antioch College welcomed 23 the newly admitted members of the class of 2015 for a look at the revived Antioch College.
In addition to a campus tour, they met College President Mark Roosevelt and Antioch alumni who discussed how co-op shaped their personal and professional lives. They also had a chance to learn about local co-op employers and hear a special presentation from MacArthur Genius Award winner Timothy Barrett, a 1973 Antioch graduate and a Horace Mann Fellowship mentor.
About Antioch College
Originally founded in 1850, Antioch College redefined liberal arts education in the 20th century by initiating an entrepreneurial and experiential curriculum through the development of its hallmark cooperative work program. Many of the now-common elements of today's liberal arts education - self-designed majors, study abroad, interdisciplinary study, and portfolio evaluation - had an early start at Antioch College. Ownership of Antioch College was transferred from Antioch University to the Antioch College Continuation Corporation in September 2009. The newly independent college will admit its first class in the fall of 2011.
