4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: 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.

3 College Freshman

Weather: 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.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: 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.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: I've never had a problem.

3 College Freshman

Academics: 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.

4 College Freshman

Academics: 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.

4 College Freshman

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

2 College Freshman

Computers: 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.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: 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.

5 College Freshman

Campus Dining: The chefs at Antioch are great. They cook every meal from scratch. Students say thank you after every meal, not because they have to put the food is just so good it's hard not to. Every meal is like a home-cooked meal, I eat better at school than I do at home.

2 College Freshman

Facilities: Antioch College is just starting up so a lot of stuff is still in the process of being created. The gym, Wellness Center, is still being built for example. There isn't really any student space, although people hang out in the library and dining halls. There is a space that is for students but it is in the basement of an old psychiatric research facility, and students are only allowed in the basement. Granted the rest of the building is falling apart, it's fun/creepy to explore if you are into that sort of thing.

Facilities: Antioch prides itself on being different, that's what it's all about. To stand out sometimes it feels like you have to dress "normal." The food at Antioch is delicious, almost all is organic, it's locally sourced, and I think that about 15-30% comes from the organic farm on campus. Antioch has a rich history and a lot of really cool alums.

There is also the Co-op program. Instead of getting summer break and wasting two months of the year, students are assisted by the co-op department to find full time jobs. Every two quarters we go on co-op. There is a lot of variety in what you can do on co-op. The point is really to explore your interests in the world and learn. It's one of the best things about the school, I think.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Antioch College is a TINY school that is in a tiny little village called Yellow Springs. It's a very cute little place, a few coffee shops, a book store. It's almost impossible to go outside without seeing someone you know or at least recognize. As far as safety goes I think the biggest scare we had was there were two car break ins, the college was notified and that was that.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Definitely suited for those who love charming small towns with lots of cultural history. The whole town is very involved with its community and upkeep. Lots of strong opinions, good for people who love a good debate. It seems like there is always something going on in town. The locals seem to enjoy the students. Shopping in town can be a little pricey, but a lot of the products are locally produced and are of good quality. Lovely coffee shops everywhere.

Transportation: The college is getting off of its feet, so transportation can be a little tricky. Most students are willing to help each other out if no other transportation is available. A bus system recently opened up that travels through town, which is cheap and accessible.

Academics: As the college is getting back off the ground, some certain policies are still being debated concerning the education system. The workload is large, but manageable. The curriculum is fairly challenging, but due to some scarcity in students and faculty, it can be difficult to complete major requirements without some difficulty. The college has many connections all over the world, and the co-op education system brings about many opportunities.

Campus Dining: The food is so good! It's pretty much all fresh, local, and organic- much of it coming from our own farm which is located on campus.

Drug Safety: Antioch is very strict about their drug and alcohol policies. They have (and are still in the continual process of working on) a wonderful drug and alcohol policy that covers a wide variety of important topics.

Campus Housing: The housing is really great. We all live close to each other and you get to know everyone pretty well. The only complaint is that living by yourself is a bit costlier than living with a roommate.

Weather: Ohio is relatively known for it's bad weather, so it wasn't much of a surprise that the weather is horrible.
The Antioch College buildings are near each other, so it isn't much of a problem getting to class on a day where there is a lot of snow or bad weather.
