A Buffalo Grazing

A well-loved vintage Antioch College bookstore T-shirt said it quite well: “Next to Mom, I like Antioch College best.” I can still remember a great black and white picture of a student in that shirt in some old publication.

The end of October and the beginning of November usually bring out some of Yellow Springs’ most stunning beauty.

Probably around a decade or two ago during a typically cold and dreary southwestern Ohio winter term an informal group of some Antioch staff and administrators would gather at lunch to view and discuss a series of educational, semi-inspirational videos. That VHS series was titled Stress Management for Professionals.

It is July on a temporarily torrid and tropical Antioch College campus and in keeping in sync with the season there have been intervals of hot discussions. (Thankfully, though, these hot discussions have been in an air-conditioned setting!) McGregor 113 has seen some extra laughter, some soul-searching moments, and moments of open-hearted candor.

By Steve Duffy ‘77 Antioch College’s Volunteer Work Week and “Antioch Authors” 2013 Reunion have just ended and are definitely both now one for the “books.” Although the basic theme was about Antioch Authors, of which there are so many, the other awards and presentations also provided a variety of treats for the heart, senses, and soul. On top of that, the food and the weather were tasty treats for other senses.

Unlike many recent springs, the 2013 southwest Ohio and Yellow Springs’ spring has been consistently and wonderfully wet and green. When it comes to planting a garden, I like to get into the ground early in the spring and get things going comfortably before mosquitoes return along with the summer’s heat.

The latter half of April 2013 is bringing all kinds of new life to Yellow Springs and Antioch College. After finally having a cold and old-fashioned “normal” winter, it is like the calendar page has quickly flipped. Southwest Ohio suddenly is rather warm.

Winter 2013 on campus has come to an end and students in the Class of 2016 are heading off to their first co-ops. As the quarter finished up, folks were studying all sorts of things at the Olive Kettering Library. People were researching hydraulic fracturing, micronutrient uptake and changes in psychological behavior, and Michel Foucault, endless biology and chemistry, the history of Standard Oil, city planning on the Maumee River near Toledo, Japanese and Spanish, and so much more!

It certainly seems like life with Antioch College and its extended community certainly stays interesting and busy. For many of us who work here and the generations of YOU out there who are helping with our regeneration, there are seemingly endless marathon-like committee discussions, meetings, and at times conference calls of varying sizes and durations. If you study or teach at the College there are also plenty of committees, small-group discussions, meetings, homework, presentations and events.
