Antioch College

Over the past few weeks, Yellow Springs has been a hot spot for bronze sculpture as the Village hosts the National Bronze Sculpture Symposium.  Antioch College's Dennie Eagleson and sculptor Susan Byrnes visited the WYSO studios to talk about Symposium and its culminating event, a bronze pour at the foundry at Antioch College on Saturday, October 26th. 

Defining an Antioch Education

Oct 3, 2013

Every quarter, Antioch College has a lecture-style class called Global Seminar. It’s a required, theme-based and interdisciplinary course that addresses major global issues. The theme of the course changes each quarter and rotates between energy, water, health, food, and governance. Last summer the theme in Global Seminar was education and the class began with a discussion about Antioch and what makes it stand out in higher education. In one assignment, students interviewed members of the community about the definition of an Antioch education.

Div Dance is an Antioch College tradition, a campus-wide gathering before students leave for 3-6 months to go on co-op.  This time around, Div Dance will feature live performances from Yellow Springs and Antioch College artists and is open to the community.  Several of those artists visited the WYSO studios to perform live including Antioch College students Della Jerkan and Zachary Sullivan.

Yellow Springs' Speaking Suns are among the community artists that will perform at Div Dance.  The band made a return visit to Excursions to share some new material.

Anyone who knows anything about Antioch knows about the cooperative education, or co-op, program. For Antioch students co-op is a chance to learn new things and experience a different way of life. We carry our co-op experiences with us forever and anyone who has talked with an alumn can tell you that the stories only get better with time. This month on the Word we hear three stories from current students about their latest co-ops.

Theme music for the Word was written, performed and produced by Seth Kaplan. Additional music for this episode is by Jason Shaw.   

On Wednesday in Municipal Court, 22-year-old Cody Buffenbarger of Springboro was charged by the Greene County Prosecutor’s office with falsification, which is a first degree misdemeanor in connection with an incident in late June at the Glen Helen Nature Preserve. 

The June 2013 installment of SOCHE TALKS features Mark Roosevelt, president of  Antioch College on creating change agents through the liberal arts.

In this monthly series we’ll hear from faculty and staff from areas colleges and universities on a wide variety of subjects. It's an effort to bring Miami Valley research and thinking into the public arena – a way to enlighten the world with local knowledge.

His anti-bullying work has become the official protocol for dealing with such issues in Great Britain. He is also a champion of experiential learning and really restraining children's screen time.
