Thirty-five students and six teachers. I wonder what the classes will be?

Think about it. That's an unbelievable teacher to student ratio. Their degree program in doobie rolling must be incredible.

Coretta Scott King went to Antioch, as did my Grandmother. What is most lacking in our world is compassion and creativity, this college is rich in both.

How about a little history lesson to reveal all that "compassion and creativity" at Antioch?

Nothing like honoring a convicted racist cop-killer at commencement:

The physical grounds of the campus, and especially the buildings are horrible. They were run down when it closed down a few years ago. The ideals of Antioch are 40 years behind the rest of the world. Nobody with half a brain would send their kid or money to that worthless institution. Hippies...

AGREE!! Nobody would hire a graduate from Antioch unless they want to tear apart the nation with left of center concepts, socialism, free lunches, and worse. Last known there were no grades at Antioch except nice written evaluations. More than once the students attempted to block the gates at Wright Patterson AFB on those deploying to defend the nation.

Yellow Springs - the town that time forgot. There's a really weird vibe in the town, like a smog of witchcraft hangs over it. Spooky place.

I believe it is one of the best schools in the country for horticulture, espcially growing in basements.

Was there for a jazz concert in about 1961 (I was barely a teenager) Saw my first "hippie". The same guy is probably still sitting there. Oh well, it takes all kinds - not everyone sees the glory of being a Buckeye, either.

Antioch does not award diplomas, it awards social indoctrinations to their graduates. Antioch is a ruse, nothing other than a worn out excuse for social experiments that fail in the real world.

Antioch is became a failed institute, filled with smarmy, self righteous Know-It-All's of the extreme weird left. I grew up in the area and know the place too well. A few years back guy was beat up on campus, seems he was wearing Nike's or some other kind of gym shoe. Because Nike exploits poor oppressed workers in Asia somewhere. And because the guy dared to wear these shoes of these oppressors, someone decided he needed to be taught a lesson and attacked him.

Another example, about 3 years ago, I was at a bookstore in "Pinko Springs" looking for a book. A student stood there with his back on an student was blocking the aisle. I said "excuse me" twice as I tried to get thru. He pretended he didn't hear me, so I just pushed past him. Then he started running his mouth, so I told him we could go outside and settle the matter. He ran and got 2 of his friends who were in the store. They called me a "hater" and "Nazi," so I told them again, we could settle it outside.

One ran and got the store owner who saw what happened. I told the owner my side and he told them to get out before he called the cops. They ran their mouths as they walked out and the owner apologized. But it's pretty typical of the big mouthed punks that infest the place. They should let Antioch die a well deserved death and let it become what it was meant to be--a parking lot!

So, the stinking corpse of Antioch has been raised Zombie-like again. It's been a failed institution since the 1970's when it was cranking out all those liberal dip shits, and it's still a failed institution.

$100K+/year for failed ideology and outdated politics?!? You are better going to your local junior college and getting a 2 year technical degree for a fraction of that! This college is so bad, they have to GIVE away an education!

Crash and burn like you should've years ago Antioch! You deserve to become a parking lot!

Gee, providing even more dumb dependent government and PAC-rat employees to take taxes instead of make taxes! Just what we need, more of them to breed and bottom feed, to do their good deeds.
