Join the entire Antioch College community for the Founders’ Weekend Potluck on Friday, October 19, 5:30–7:30 p.m., on the front lawn of campus between North and South Hall.

The potluck will bring together the Board of Trustees, the Alumni Board, Antioch College volunteers and alumni, current and former faculty, Yellow Springs and Miami Valley residents, and our current and incoming students.

Your generous contribution of a side dish to share with the community helps to support this event. We ask that each dish is large enough to serve 8 people. Main course, drinks, and table service will be provided. Please RSVP and provide your dish information A.S.A.P. to or 937-767-2341.

President Mark Roosevelt will hold his Executive Briefing immediately following dinner at 7:30 p.m.

On Saturday, October 20, a bonfire will be held at 9:00 p.m. on the Antioch College golf course.

Please note that this is an alcohol-free event.

:: Message on design build project from Sara Black

The next design build project will take place November 2-4. We will be shifting gears from the cordwood wall to make progress on the wooden pavilion structure, prepare the roof substructure to hopefully create a moss roof in collaboration with Linda Fuselier, assistant professor of environmental sciences, in the spring, and focus on the stone floor.

Leaders are the same (you can pull that info HERE) and we hope to involve the same second-year students and recruit a handful of first-year students to join.

There will be a final session in the spring.

:: Payroll information from Tom Brookey

With the new payroll company, Paycor, we no longer have to complete timesheets for salaried employees. Hourly staff will need to continue filling out timesheets for a few more weeks. Once all employees are set up with new passwords, employees will be able to go online and record their hours on a daily or weekly basis in the system called Time on Demand. It will then be approved by the supervisor and forwarded directly to us in payroll. Watch for more details on that!

Please continue to submit the same form for request for time off for vacation, sick, bereavement, etc. that you do now. This is how we will track your time off in the payroll system. Submit those forms to your supervisor and forward them to Tom Brookey or Dianne Jordan.

:: Bookstore announcement

Attention students:

The Bookstore continues to get book deliveries daily, so if you are still missing a book, please keep checking. We will keep regular hours again this week from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., or by stopping by the President’s Office to see Anna Hogarty, Tom Brookey, Joan Meadows, or Dianne Jordan.

:: Information from National Coming Out Day talk

Last Thursday, October 11, Kevin McGruder, assistant professor of history, gave a talk honoring National Coming Out Day. It drew on his personal experiences, his work as executive director of Gay Men of African Descent in New York City, and recent scholarship by activist Darnell Moore.

For those who did not get a copy of the paper by Moore, “Coming Out, or, Inviting In?: Reframing Disclosure Paradigms,” it can be downloaded HERE. The bibliography can be downloaded HERE.

:: Yellow Springs Art Stroll

The Yellow Springs Art Stroll is a major arts event in Yellow Springs on Friday, October 19, 6:00–9:00 p.m., with many galleries and cafes open to provide artistic entertainment. There will be two “Guided Art Strolls” (6:30 p.m & 7:30 p.m.) led by local artists.

The Herndon Gallery will be a part of the Art Stroll with the gallery open from 6:00–9:00 p.m. Visitors will be able to view if becoming this, an exhibition of photographs and videos by Sheilah Wilson, assistant professor of photography and new media at Denison University.

Also as a part of Art Stroll, the YS Arts Council Gallery will feature NYC-based artist Ingrid Edwards. Edwards’s life has been a work of art, and you will enjoy the reflection of her nearly nine decades of experience in her exquisite and impactful acrylic paintings and charcoal drawings. Meet Edwards, a former Broadway and television dancer, at our Opening Reception, with music on the YSAC Community Gallery’s outdoor patio!

:: Counseling and Wellness resources

Everyone please welcome our new campus counselor Erin Currier, MSW, LISW. Erin is a licenced social worker and therapist that has been working in Springfield at Mercy REACH for the past three years. She also has had experience working with teens and families in Columbus, as well as counseling at the Ohio State University Veterinary School. Erin will be on campus at least four days a week and is available for appointments with students for both individuals and couples. She will also be doing some in-service trainings with us and visiting Community Meeting to talk about mental health issues and wellness. Her office is located in North Hall on the first floor, Room 117.

Opposite her office, we will be setting up a waiting and wellness room. This will house information as well as wellness goodies such as Emergen-C, tiger balm and other items that help you feel better. Watch this space for the grand opening of the wellness room.

You can contact Erin by phone at 614-668-399 or by email at

:: Message from Community Life

Independent Groups

So far we have had a lot of interest in independent groups here on campus. What are the next steps? Community Life will review all of the proposals for independent groups and get in touch with coordinators with further questions. We will then be bringing completed proposals through the governance process. Groups can begin to meet on their own. Suggested meeting spaces include the Olive Kettering Library, South Hall second floor, South Hall third floor, and North Hall dining room. We ask your patience with this new process of independent group proposals. It will take several weeks before we can get your proposals approved since there is much business to do.

Conveners/Governance Task Group

Tuesday October 16, at 1 p.m., Conveners and Governance Task Group will be meeting in McGregor 113 to discuss the proposed by-laws for Community Government. If you are interested in running for Community Council, it is highly recommended that you attend.


Anyone with a car who is interested in being included in our rideshare program, send e-mail to Louise Smith at Louise Smith at You will be put on a list and your phone number and e-mail will be put out there to be contacted by students who need rides. Reimbursement for runs to Dayton=$10 gas card; for Columbus=$20.

:: Free Performance of Messiaen’s Quartet for the End of Time

On October 26, the nonprofit recital series Sunday at Central will present renowned French composer Olivier Messiaen’s Quatuor pour la fin du Temps (Quartet for the End of Time) on Friday, at 7:30 p.m. in the South Gym at Antioch College.
