The Revitalization of Antioch College: Campus Renovations video

In September 2011, College leadership launched a campus master planning process with Pittsburgh-based architecture firm, MacLachlan, Cornelius & Filoni. Part of that process included an institutional commitment to sustainability and green energy in all renovation and construction projects the College undertook, from that point forward.

In October 2012, historic North Hall opened with LEED Gold certification as the College’s second residence hall. In 2013, Phase 1 of the Art & Science Building renovation was completed and construction began on the Wellness Center, formerly Curl Gymnasium, that June. The newly renovated Wellness Center opened to a huge crowd of both Yellow Springs and Antioch community members in September 2014. Phase 2 of the Art & Science Building renovation was completed in December 2014. Renovations to the Foundry Theater were set in motion in July 2013 and completed most recently in January 2015.

Here is a look at the transformation of Antioch College following completion of these renovations:
