Antioch College - Comments and Student Experiences|
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.
