There aren't many recruitment opportunities, but co-op is a fantastic way to figure these things out. That department has its problems, but sometimes they are able to match students with really great opportunities.

The courses are pretty good. There are some bad professors and some great ones.
SOPP- Does a pretty good job. Isn't perfect, but its certainly one of the best policies of its kind
Review Your College
There are very few options. There are community refrigerators that are free to use, but people steal from them. Mini fridges are discouraged. Not many people use the common rooms.
Overall, classes are fantastic. The community, however, is highly judgmental. Often, people are ostracized for their dissenting opinions.
I feel very safe and secure on campus no matter what time
so many activates happen around campus and the people there are the best.

Everyone in the school is just amazing from all the staff and students it feels like a home away from home.
Antioch College is such an amazing place once I arrived here for the first time I felt a sense of being home. I feel homesick whenever I leave campus. On another note, its very easy to get jealous when visiting big schools since they have so much more than we do, but I wouldn't want to change my decision to come here regardless of how big the school is.
I really enjoy being at Antioch College in the quaint little town of Yellow Springs. I feel like this school challenges me not only academically but as person. I've come to question most of the ideals I have because of this place, and I know others have felt the same, I feel like this is why Antioch is so unique, wonderful, and important to my growth.
I have not seen the campus or met teachers yet, but my counselor is Amazing!
I think it's ok. There have been a couple students who went a little over the top. But they are re-reviewing the policy now so it is subject to change.
It's in Ohio, that means that it get's pretty cold, and it get's pretty snowy. This year there was a salt shortage so all the paths were rather slick and slippery.

The Horace Mann fellowship is awesome, it covers all of tuition, but this is the last year every student gets it, so apply fast. On top of that there is need-based financial aid for room and board.

I've never had a problem.
There are currently three science professors. The chemistry professor is great, really hard class, but great professor you learn a lot and have to use your brain. The environmental science professor is good, lot's of good information, you go outside for labs and do hands on stuff. The biology professor is not so good. This means that if you want to be a bio-med major 50% of your instruction is from a not so great professor.
The academics are rigorous as all the brochures say. The science and political science majors I think have the most work. There aren't a lot of professors on campus, because the school is so small but they all almost always have their office doors open, even if you aren't in their class. There are some not so great professors but for the most part it's good. One of my problems with the academics is there aren't a lot of classes offered, and each level of science class is only offered once a year so if you get behind, you're behind by a whole year and there is no way to make it up.

There aren't a lot of restaurants but they are all pretty good, the Chinese Restaurant delivers, so do both local pizza places.

There is a computer lab, but I've never used it, it's often locked. There are three computers in the library, you can't print for free on two of them. And there are three computers in the Writing Institute, only one of those works to print, but it's free.

  • Campus
Campus is very safe, I feel comfortable walking across campus in the dark and alone. There isn't a student health center on campus, there is a doctor's office nearby that students can go to though if they make an appointment. In the winter it's a little tough because it's about 10-20mins walking from campus and there aren't very many sidewalks so you end up walking in the piles of snow on the side of the road. Although if you get a ride it's like 5 minutes away.

Alcohol safety is something that is constantly talked about. They are re-writing the alcohol policy now.
