When Antioch College re-opened its doors in 2011, it admitted a small group of individuals on a scholarship that covered their tuition for all four years. When the class of 2015 entered Antioch, they brought the flesh and blood to a bare-boned campus with only two functioning buildings. Over four years, the class of 2015 shrank, changed, and experienced a wild rollercoaster ride as Antioch College grew, pulled itself up by its bootstraps, made new rules, and started its accreditation process. This past June, the class of 2015 graduated, and the event stands as a major landmark in the college’s history. Here are the words and stories of the class that came to Antioch in its infancy; here you will hear their struggles, experiences, and times they had at Antioch College.
