Nonstop Independent Groups & Community Centers

The Womyn’s Center

Molly Thornton, Womyn\'s Center Coordinator

The Womyn’s Center is a supportive space for female-bodied and female-identified individuals of varying identities and backgrounds to get excited, educated, and share experiences of womanhood. The content of conversations and activities is open to the interests of the participants, but often include such titillating topics as menstruation, body image, gender roles, cunts, feminist theories, abortion, health, sex, women’s rights, violence against women, arts, crafts, and of course community. I can’t wait to have “Love Your Body Night”, the most widely anticipated Womyn’s Center event, with food, art making, and body positive celebration! I’m also super excited about DIY activities, alternatives to the western version of reproductive health, and women in the media. I’d love to see radical discussions take place within the frame of a loosely defined Stitch ‘n’ Bitch, inviting crafters of all varieties to participate. Also, aside from scheduled meetings and parties, womyn should feel free to ask me about impromptu or non-structured female time, space, and support as needed.

Interfaith Dialog

Jessie Clark, Interfaith Dialogue Coordinator

I am Jessie Clark and I will be coordinating the Interfaith Dialog Independent Group (IG). In this IG, we will be engaging in intriguing discussions about spirituality, religion and all the juicy bits in between. The discussions will take place over tea at the Dharma Center. A time has yet to be figured out. If you have ever pondered the meaning of life or have a general interest in the theories of others come join us! The focus will be on exchange and mutual discussion, sharing religious woes and oohs (epiphanies), what bothers us and what is helpful to us in thinking about the spiritual life (need there be such a thing?). We are interested to here what you think about these hot topics. Atheist & religious misfits also welcome. For more information e-mail me at Hope to see you there!

The Queer Center

Ashley McNeely, Co-Queer Center Coordinator

The queer center is being coordinated by Nic Viox and Ashley McNeely for the fall term at Nonstop. The queer center is a resource for members to celebrate being queer and engage with each other about issues concerning queer identity and queer culture. The queer center will be sponsoring many events this term, such as queer movie nights, sex week, and GenderFuck.

We are still looking for a meeting space and have yet to determine a weekly schedule. Please contact us (Nic Viox ; Ashley McNeely

Letter from Zach Gallant

If anyone has taken a course with Scott Warren, they’ve heard his analogy of the situation at Antioch “It’s like the grandchildren walking up the stairs with a pillow to smother grandpa for the inheritance money”. Appropriate analogies have never been what I’d refer to as an Antiochian strength, but this is as accurate as it is vivid and amusing.
At the same time, let’s take a step back and ask ourselves, like I imagine the grandfather from that analogy might between muscle spasms and screams, how we let this happen. When people at home or work ask me why Antioch is closing, as much as I’d like to scream about the evil University, what I always end up answering is “Decades of mismanagement by radical liberals”. The University is certainly not innocent in its money-grubbing opportunism and disregard for history, tradition, or decorum, and the cowardice of these destroyers will not be forgotten. But they are simply vultures, looters attempting to squeeze another penny out of someone else’s hard work. They are not frightening aside from their prevalence. What’s much more terrifying to me is what allowed them this opportunity: The death of the Antioch dream. Continue reading Letter from Zach Gallant


Do you have a contact with an organization that works primarily with youth? If so, you’re helpful to the admissions and recruitment process!!

We’re looking for students who have worked with organizations who could help us network to spread the word that Antioch is open and draw attention to the kind of students we want at Antioch.  For example, I worked with GLSEN – the gay, lesbian, straight education network in high school and could help get the word out to gay/straight alliances about Antioch College.

If you have any type of connection, we’ll help you with the work that needs to happen to make them an ally of Antioch!

Just send me an email or call/stop by the office,

Uncertainty about Co-op Program Next Year

By Ben Horlacher
The Co-op program has gotten used to change.  In 1921 Arthur E. Morgan (the then president of Antioch College) began what is know a trademark of Antioch, the Co-op program. During the last few years the Co-op program has seen many changes: the implementation of Co-op communities, the concept of “list jobs” enter into the vocabulary of Co-op, and the shift in required Co-ops from five to three. These changes were part of the much bemoaned renewal plan, which is often blamed for the College’s current financial straits. Continue reading Uncertainty about Co-op Program Next Year

Major Changes in IT

This weekend marks a number of changes in the operations of Antioch University’s IT system. In addition to the move of the college’s server and change in FirstClass login names, new policies have been drawn up that will give IT staff legal access to Email boxes of employees.
According to head of the IT department, William Marshal, there are 30 to 40 servers that support University IT operations, two of them running Email services. The Yellow Springs campuses have their email on a server that was here in Yellow Springs and the other four run their mail off a server in New England. Marshall, who accepted the position of Chief Information Officer 10 months ago, explained on Tuesday, “What we’re doing is putting everyone on the same server because there are problems with people communicating across campuses. That server will be physically located in New England.”

The server migration will take place this weekend, November 3-4, and FirstClass will be offline for the transfer. Coinciding with this move of hardware is a move from current usernames to the NetID system. When the FirstClass email system goes back online all usernames, formerly the user’s first initial and surname, will become Datatel, or NetID numbers. For students, this is the number on caf/key cards and the number used to access Continue reading Major Changes in IT
