Please welcome Valerie Webster as our new Vice President for Administration and Finance.

Valerie is located in McGregor 252 in the President’s Office and is replacing Scott Frasure who resigned as Vice President of Finance.

Another new team member today is Jim Woehrle. Jim is the Institutional Research Coordinator and has a duel reporting structure with the Vice President for Academic Affairs and the Director of Institutional Effectiveness. Jim will compile, analyze, and report College data related to student success, academic and institutional assessment, self-study and accreditation, grant writing, and regular surveys including teaching and advising evaluations. Jim will also spearhead data collection and analysis efforts, create and maintain an inventory of institutional data and manage the dissemination of data and information throughout appropriate departments. Jim is temporarily located in McGregor 146.

Welcome Valerie and Jim!

:: Community Meeting is Tuesday, March 5

Don’t forget! Community Meeting is this Tuesday, March 5. At this assembly of Community Meeting, we will discuss Antioch College’s food policy, the newly announced Antistoch: An Antioch College Benefit for WYSO, and the editors of FOUND Magazine coming to campus.

:: Farm looking for assistance over spring break

Partial stays will be considered. Tasks include chicken and duck care, watering starts, greenhouse & plant care, and spring preparations. Students must be in good standing with community life, be responsible and like chickens. No experience necessary. Contact Kat Christen for more details at (937) 477-8654 or farm@antiochcollege.org.

:: FOUND Magazine editors to visit Voice and Speech class

On Friday, March 8, Peter and Davey Rothbart, editors of FOUND Magazine will be visiting Louise Smith’s Voice and Speech class and doing a workshop. All are welcome to attend, 2:30-3:45 p.m. in the Glen Building.

:: Opening of Appetite: An American Pastime

The Herndon Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of Appetite: An American Pastime. The exhibition explores the following questions: What are the defining attributes of the American appetite and how do they appear in the landscape of contemporary culture? How have the desires of a quintessentially American outlook imprinted the global structure and what impact does it have on those who expect to freely participate within it?

The opening reception for Appetite: An American Pastimeis Saturday, March 16, from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. and the exhibition will continue through May 24.

This project is a curatorial collaboration between local installation and multimedia artist Michael Casselli, artists Eric Dyer and Maggie Hoffman, Raul Vincent Enriquez, Stefanie Koseff, and political/cultural theorist, Kurt Miyazaki.

Casselli, in his interest to create a more democratic model of curation, initiated the concept (APPETITE), and created visual structure (HOME) for his invited participants. It is an experiment through which the interior of the Herndon Gallery is radically transformed, and each participating artist has been given an interior “room” in which they stage their responses to the concept of “Appetite.” This physical/conceptual structure made possible the exchange of ideas between the participants and Casselli that were instrumental in creating the original work which will be presented within the reconfigured gallery space.

:: Antioch College presents Antistoch

:: YS Arts Council announces The Crucible

Yellow Springs Center Stage proudly presents Arthur Miller’s “timeless” tale, The Crucible on March 8, 9, 15 and 16, at 8:00 p.m. Written as a response to McCarthyism, Miller’s story tells the harrowing but still resonant tale of the Salem Witch Trials. The play is considered part of the bedrock of American theater, and Center Stage is excited to bring its vision to local and regional audiences in the unique setting of the First Presbyterian Church of Yellow Springs.

Tickets are $10 at the door. Advance reservations are not available and seating is limited. Doors open at 7:00 p.m. with audience members encouraged to arrive early to enjoy live ‘mood-setting’ music before the curtain rises. The Crucible is produced by Kay Reimers, on behalf of Center Stage, and directed by Lorrie Sparrow. This production features Brendan Sheehan, Kayla Graham, Ellen Ballerene, Aaron Saari, Thor Sage and Rob Campbell.

Founded in 1971, Center Stage is the community theater of Yellow Springs, Ohio. Center Stage is proud to produce both classic and new works in the creative community of Yellow Springs. Upcoming auditions for Center Stage’s next production, The Women (written by Clare Boothe Luce and directed by Rob Campbell), will be mid-March. For upcoming events, visit the Yellow Springs Center Stage Facebook page.

:: Self-Study Theme Contest ENDS TODAY

Students, staff and faculty:

Today is the last day to enter the self-study logo design contest. Submit your entries by midnight tonight for a chance to win a $100 gift certificate to the Winds Cafe!

The full contest rules are below:

The Self-Study Steering Committee is seeking community participation in developing a logo to represent the College’s self-study theme: We think. We can. The logo may be used online, in print, and on merchandise. Flexibility is a key requirement, including the need to resize easily and to look good in black and white as well as color. The final version of the logo will need to be suitable for high-quality printing. One grand prize winner will be selected and will receive a $100 gift certificate to the Winds Café. Two runners-up will each receive a $25 gift certificate to the Winds Café.

ABOUT THE THEME

Though open to interpretation, many will associate the We think. We can. theme with the popular children’s book, The Little Engine That Could. The story of the little engine has been told and retold many times. The underlying theme is the same — a stranded train is unable to find an engine willing to take it over difficult terrain to its destination. Only the little blue engine is willing to try and, while repeating the mantra “I think I can, I think I can,” overcomes a seemingly impossible task. The theme embodies optimism and hard work—both critical to our success in the self-study process. It also lends itself well for use after our successful site visit by adding a resounding, We DID!
