What Students Are Saying

4.67 Average Rating
Choosing to go to Antioch, a small, rebuilding liberal arts college that is smaller than the United States Senate, is like choosing the road less taken. It deviates from the traditional, conventional notions of what college is supposed to mean to an individual. Here at Antioch, education aims to prepare an individual for the practical world of work, competition, and challenge, with refined world views and broadened skills.
Gabriel from San Diego, CA
Antioch College is one of the best decisions I've made. Everyone here is so wonderful and accepting. Not only is it an accepting environment it is an active one.
Jeremiah from East Liverpool, OH
Antioch is a beautiful college set in a funky town called Yellow Springs. It is not for the average person; in fact, it is for people that are wacky and creative and wish to speak their minds. Despite the fun, Antioch still has some issues, and it really just needs the students' guidance!
Tymber from LA Vergne, TN
Antioch is awesome. Its a place to fit in. Everyone is nice, and cares.
Richard from Phoenix, AZ
Antioch College is a small liberal arts school that is trying to get itself back up and running. Its Sexual Offensive Prevention Policy has become known in universities nationwide. There is a lot of focus on current, real world problems such as social justice, sustainability, etc.

Great liberal arts school. Small and friendly. A terrific place to get an education.
Alana from Waterford, MI
Antioch College is rebuilding itself after being closed down by the larger University which it was affiliated with. Now independent of the University, Antioch College is reclaiming its reputation as a top-tier liberal arts college with a big emphasis on encouraging social action, educating students to be global citizens, and creating valuable learning opportunities both in and out of the classroom. I absolutely love being part of such a passionate, inspiring community, and I am so happy to have found a school where I truly feel at home.
