The Antioch University blurb, posted at the end of press releases and the like, reads: “Antioch College is part of Antioch University…,”
These careful semantics cannot hide the plain truth: Antioch College is the taproot of Antioch University. And it always will be.
While McGregor continues to move towards a more market driven educational product (and this explains why I, former Antioch student turned mother of three, am able to attend), they may have unknowingly given the student body more power than even self- governance allows. For consumers hold the power in an open market economy, and we are finding our voice.
While various groups work to “save” Antioch College, we students must reach our arms across this tiny town and forge connections. The leadership can build buildings, and they can tear them down if they choose. But what grows, and lives, will come from us.
United we stand.
