Antioch College

Antioch College


What if going to college meant combining rigorous classroom learning with real-life work experience, and putting theory into practice? Antioch College is a place for students who want a unique educational experience. Our academic programs encourage studying with purpose, engaging in community, and applying those lessons in the world at-large—becoming a catalyst for positive change wherever life leads. Antioch’s small size lets us support students through personalized attention from their professors. We also have a formal Center for Academic Success that offers tutoring and sessions on study skills, time management, stress management and budgeting. Other academic and social supports on campus include the Coretta Scott King Center for Cultural and Intellectual Freedom, the Writing Institute, the Diversity Committee, and interest-based student groups.

Programs Supporting First-Generation College Students

Academic Advising & Support Writing Institute

The Writing Institute provides opportunities for focused study of the writing craft. Our programs include writing assessment, weekly tutoring, cross-disciplinary consultations, and workshops that focus on various elements of academic writing. Additionally, through workshops and public readings, students have opportunities to learn from published authors in fiction, non-fiction, poetry, memoir, and journalism.

Student Life & Support Student IG (Independent Group) for First-Generation Students

Antioch has launched a student-run independent group for first-generation students, and is developing a broader support program with resources from the Student Life and Academic Affairs departments.

Student Life & Support Coretta Scott King Center for Cultural and Intellectual Freedom (CSKC)

The CSKC houses Friday Forums open to both the college campus and the local community, heritage month celebrations, the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day celebration and awards ceremony, and the Coretta Commemoration where a student is highlighted.

Student Life & Support Diversity Committee

The diversity committee was birthed out of the CSKC to bring diverse programming and awareness of social, national and international issues to light on our campus. The committee has since launched a book club on diverse issues, open to faculty, staff and students.

Mentoring Peer Mentoring Program

This is an academic and social support service for first-generation and other new Antioch students. Returning students serve as peer mentors for these first-year students, providing academic and social support to help them navigate college. Our Early Alert and First Watch programs also support students throughout their time at Antioch.
