:: North Hall update

Contractors began prepping to drill twenty-five 600-foot wells in the horseshoe green for the North Hall geothermal HVAC system. That area was chosen because it places the wells far enough away from any trees, so that their root systems would not be damaged. College facilities manager Reggie Stratton said 15,000 feet of pipe will be laid for this project. Drilling is expected to begin two weeks from today.

:: Recruiting the next class

Visit events for admitted students are planned for Sunday, April 15, 2012, and Sunday, April 22, 2012. During these events, students will engage with current students, faculty, and staff to determine if Antioch College is the right fit for them.

Earlier this month, the College mailed admission packets to 160 students. Cezar Mesquita, dean of admission and financial aid, expects that about 75 students will accept the College’s offer to join the Class of 2016. Students must accept or decline the College’s offer of admission on or before May 1, 2012.

Mesquita provided these statistics about the applications received and the group of admitted students. The College received more than 3,100 applications. Seventy-one percent of admitted students identified as female, twenty-five percent identified as male, and one percent did not identify gender on the application. Eighty-three percent of admitted students were from out of state.

The group is also racially and ethnically diverse. Forty-nine percent are white, fourteen percent are African American, eight percent are Asian, four percent are multiracial, and two percent are Native Hawaiian or Native American. Thirteen percent of applicants identified as Hispanic or Latino and eleven percent did not identify race or ethnicity.

Their academic interests were:

  • Natural Sciences: 27%
  • Social Sciences: 19%
  • Humanities: 16%
  • Arts: 13%
  • Undecided or Not Identified: 25%

:: Spring Break in the nation’s capital

Six students traveled to Washington D.C. for sightseeing and association with college alums during the first week of spring break. On their last night, they attended a potluck. Congressional Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton ’60, stopped in to say hello. “Good food—good talk—and good shared commitment,” said Karen Mulhauser ’65, a member of the Alumni Board and a leader of the Washington D.C. Alumni Chapter.
