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.

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