:: Mark Latson

Antioch College is deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Mark Latson, an employee with First National Security, who passed away on March 28. Mark provided a safe environment for Antioch students, faculty, and staff on nights and weekends for the last three years, as a security guard. Mark will be remembered for his calm disposition and friendly attitude. He will be missed by many.

Here is a link to his obituary in the Yellow Springs News:

:: New Facebook page will post community events, announcements

Attention faculty, staff, and students. A new Facebook group called THE BULLETIN has been set up for general campus information, event information, and announcements. All members of the Antioch community are welcome to post on it.

Administrators of the group, Shane Creepingbear and Nicole Wroten-Craw, will be inviting all Antioch community members with Facebook pages to the group this week. It is the hope of the Office of Communication and the Office of Community Life that this group will become the go-to place for internal communication and information, in addition to OMP.

For questions, please e-contact Nicole Wroten-Craw at nwroten@antiochcollege.org.

:: Community Council president office hours

Elijah Blanton, Community Council president, will hold office hours on Wednesdays from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. and Mondays from 6:45 to 8:00 p.m. Also, please feel free to e-mail him anytime at comcil@antiochcollege.org.

:: Suggestions e-mail created

An e-mail address has been set up to bring ideas, issues, etc. to the attention of the president and other members of Senior Leadership. Please e-mail suggestions@antiochcollege.org with any concerns, questions or suggestions.

:: Advancement Office needs student worker

The Antioch College Advancement Office is looking for a part-time student worker for the spring quarter. Work will be 5-7 hours per week, and can be flexible during normal business hours, 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Tasks will include data entry, event planning, annual fund support, administrative tasks, and more. If interested, please e-mail mdevine@antiochcollege.org to schedule a brief interview.

:: Lecture and performance workshop by Appetite artists

Antioch College is pleased to announce a free lecture and performance workshop by New York- based artists Eric Dyer and Maggie Hoffman on Saturday, April 27. The lecture will begin at 1:00 p.m. in McGregor Hall, room 113 on the Antioch campus. The performance workshop will be held in McGregor Hall, room 118 and will run from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m.

Dyer and Hoffman are founding members of Radiohole, a performance ensemble and on-going experiment in non-hierarchical creative collaboration. They focus on creating and performing original theatrical performances.

Their lecture will feature a blend of PowerPoint presentation and performance art, to create a medusa-media discussion of Radiohole, it’s history and work. The artists will also discuss the installation Feed me, which is a part of Appetite: An American Pastime, the current exhibition in Antioch College’s Herndon Gallery.

The performance workshop, titled “The HoleShop,” is a hands-on exploration of the creative ideas and processes Radiohole engages in developing its work. Its focus is less concerned with “methods” and “techniques” than with a consideration of what “non-hierarchical” collaboration can mean, how we “play” together in creative collaboration, and the ways in which everyday technologies can be creatively engaged.

Working together in small groups, participants will develop short performances utilizing an array source material (text, video clips, music) and some of the same technologies Radiohole utilizes. The workshop will culminate in the presentation of each group’s work followed by a brief discussion. Participants should dress in comfortable clothing. The workshop is free and open to the public, but interested parties should contact the Herndon Gallery to reserve a space.

Radiohole has performed at venues in New York City such as The Kitchen, PS122, and in its own space, the Collapsable Hole. The company has toured nationally and internationally. In its fifteen-year history, Radiohole has created eleven full-length works and earned a reputation as one of New York City’s leading experimental performance companies.

For more information, contact Dennie Eagleson, creative director of the Herndon Gallery, at deagleson@antiochcollege.org or 937-768-6462.

:: Protect your electronic devices from power surges

With the arrival of spring, stormy weather is here again, and this is a good opportunity to remind everyone about appropriate care for computers and other electronic devices.

If lightning strikes an electrical conduit outdoors, the resulting overcurrent can travel into buildings, through power outlets, and into any connected electrical equipment—usually destroying not just the connected equipment, but also the data stored on the device. Additionally, even a simple loss of power during a storm will, of course, interrupt processes on computers without battery backup and will erase unsaved data.

Therefore to protect the College’s investment in electronic devices as well as our data, please adhere to the following directions if a storm is approaching (or is forecast for an evening or weekend, etc.). It is also your responsibility to follow these guidelines if using College-provided equipment (such as a laptop or cell phone) off campus.

For devices connected directly to a wall outlet:

If your device is connected directly to a wall outlet—or if you are ever in doubt about its surge protection—play it safe by doing the following:

  1. Take the appropriate steps to power down the device. For example, if you are using a computer, save files as appropriate, close running programs, and choose “shut down” or equivalent from the appropriate menu.
  2. After shut down is complete, physically disconnect the device by unplugging it from the wall outlet—not by disconnecting the power cord from the device itself. Additionally, disconnect the device from other lines or devices that are not protected from surges.

For devices connected to power strips:

Not all power strips (multi-outlet hubs plugged into a wall outlet) are surge protectors. Power strips without surge protection offer no increased protection against overcurrent than do regular wall outlets. You should therefore examine a power strip for any labeling indicating that it offers surge protection. If you discover that you are on a power strip without surge protection, please follow the steps above for devices connected directly to wall outlets.

If the power strip or other intermediate hardware you are connected to does include surge protection, you only need disconnect your device from other devices that are not protected by surge protectors, or (preferably) disconnect those unprotected devices from wall outlets. However, remember that if the power goes out, your surge-protected device will still lose information in its working memory unless it has a battery backup. Therefore while you do not have to unplug a surge-protected device, you should still shut down the device or at least save work frequently to prevent loss of data.

For devices with standalone power supplies, such as laptops:

Some devices have their own power supply, such as laptops or cell phones with internal batteries. These devices still need surge protection as described above. However, if protected from surges—either by being plugged into a surge protector or disconnected from an unprotected outlet during a storm—they can be safely left running even if there is a power outage. Properly functioning laptops, for example, should automatically sleep or hibernate in the event of a complete power loss and battery depletion.

Other devices may be connected to a standalone external power supply (a UPS), which usually offer surge protection. If your device is connected to a UPS, your device does not need to be shut down as long as it is manually or automatically put into sleep/hibernate mode before the UPS runs out of emergency power.

The Office of IT can help!

The Office of IT would like to help by providing surge protectors for any College computer or related system that is not currently protected from surges. Based on the above guidelines, if you know your computer or other devices are not surge protected, please contact support@antiochcollege.org so that we can provide/install surge protection. Our goal is to eventually make many of the above steps unnecessary by guaranteeing that all of the College’s devices are surge-protected. We will also be conducting inspections to help you identify which devices are not protected from surges.

Please contact support@antiochcollege.org with any questions or comments.

:: Antioch College Menu and Dining Hall information

We ask that faculty, staff, and visitors offer $5.00, paid via the “honor system,” to a deposit safe located near the front entrance of the dining room.
