:: Antioch Kitchens update from Tom Brookey

Dear Antioch community,

Dining in North Hall is now in full swing, serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner, Monday through Friday, and brunch and dinner on Saturday and Sunday. Dining room hours of operation are as follows:

Monday through Friday

Breakfast: 8:00–9:30 a.m.

Lunch: Noon–1:30 p.m.

Dinner: 5:00–6:30 p.m.

Saturday and Sunday

Brunch: 11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

Dinner: 5:00–6:30 p.m.

The Antioch community is pleased to welcome two new members of the North Hall Kitchen staff: Patty Nally as the new sous chef and Christina Tibbott as the new kitchen assistant.

The kitchen staff is still getting comfortable in the new facility; therefore, catering services will be available at the kitchen’s discretion. Chefs Daniel and Isaac, who are co-managing our dining program, will not begin accepting requests for catering events until they are confident they can provide excellent service. We will announce limited catering services in the near future.

:: GLCA Student of Color Leadership Conference announcement

:: Fall Term 2012 Elections Process

This year we are creating our new Community Council. Seats are available for the year and consist of the following:

  • Four students (two elected by students, two at large)
  • Two faculty (one elected by faculty, one at large)
  • Two staff (one elected by staff, one at large)
  • President of Council elected at large

Each of the candidates for the faculty and student seats will need to identify an alternate or deputy who is on another sequence to run with. For example, if you are class of 2015, you will need to find a running mate that is class of 2016. This person will take your place when you are on co-op. This will ensure that we will only need to have one election per year as proposed in our by-laws.

Council of Conveners and Governance Task Group will constitute this year’s elections committee. In order to serve on the elections committee, the student would not be able to run for a seat.

Members of the elections committee are:

  • Jenn Wheeler
  • Jennifer Jolls
  • Louise Smith
  • Sara Black
  • One additional student

Our timeline for elections is as follows:

  • Tuesday, October 23
    Community Meeting Governance Task Group presentation and nomination process begins
  • Friday, October 26
    Nomination process closes at 5:00 p.m.; bring forms to Community Life
  • Tuesday, October 30, 1:00–3:00 p.m.
    Candidates Forum, McGregor 113
  • Tuesday, November 6
    Election all day, East Gym (no Community Meeting)
  • Friday, November 9
    Election results available: posted in North Hall dining room and via e-mail by 5:00 p.m.

How to run:

  1. Identify your alternate. Submit nomination information and forms. Forms will be made available on October 23 at Community Meeting.
  2. Your student standing will be verified with the Office of Community Life and the Office of Academic Affairs.
  3. Campaigning can begin October 23. No campaigning in polling place on Election Day.
  4. We will post your statement of intent and photo in North Hall and McGregor Hall. Your alternate will be identified as well. Photo and statement of alternate is also required.

How to campaign: Candidate forum will be on October 30, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. Be prepared to speak two to three minutes to the community at large. No College logos on posters so that the College does not officially seem to be sponsoring an individual candidate. Campaigning is at the discretion of the faculty if taking place during class time.

How to vote: For the sake of convenience, we are capitalizing on the national election to get your vote in. Voting will be in the East Gym right next to the South Gym, during the voting hours for the national, state, and local elections. You must bring valid photo ID or Antioch ID. Voting process is run-off voting. Votes are for the package of candidate and their alternate. The process will be explained further as part of our Community Meeting agenda on Tuesday, October 23.

Happy voting!

:: Volleyball and tennis groups

Dear students, faculty, and staff,

Local groups want to invite any students interested in playing volleyball or tennis in Yellow Springs to join their teams.

The groups are “not beginner level,” although folks would be happy to teach you by appointment.

So, if you know how to play, volleyball is at the Bryan Center Gym on Mondays and Wednesdays at noon, and Fridays at 1:30 p.m. Tennis on the Antioch courts is Saturday and Sundays at 1:00 p.m.
