Antioch college is a feminist college.BrightEducation
Antioch college is a feminist college. There curriculum is systematically designed for women and girls in education. The public education system is suffering because boys don't fit into the feminist model offered at Antioch College. The ideology is strict with ideas like "competition among students is wrong". If you're a male I recommend a public state college or UC college where more than one philosophy is accepted.

Question
My lure to Antioch was its Cooperative WorkBrightOther
My lure to Antioch was its Cooperative Work Study Program, a relatively new concept in the mid to late 70's .

As is often the case however, the grass is always greener on the other side. As a 1st year and even as a 2nd year, the choices for work study positions was limited. If you were not into travelling to different parts of the country, you probably wouldn't be too pleased with the program.

Being somewhat in the middle of the road politically, I quickly discovered that I was looked at right wing republican in a room of ultra liberal democrats (in reality at the time I was a democrat). It didn't take long to see that if you weren't far to the left, you opinion was not welcome.

On the positive side, Yellow Springs is a very quiet area in rural Ohio and the townies were friendly. Antioch also forced me to grow up quick and in a hurry; likely much faster than if I attended one of the other schools I was accepted to. There were also one or two very accomplished professors that I had the pleasure to take a course from.

In addition, Antioch has produced some notible individuals like Coretta Scott King, Rod Serling, and Stephen Jay Gould.All in all however, If I had to do it again, knowing what I do now, I would defintely have gone somewhere else.
