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.

If you have not yet been added to the group and would like to be, please contact Nicole Wroten-Craw at nwroten@antiochcollege.org. Please note: This group is for faculty members, staff members, and students at Antioch College ONLY.

:: Design Build Project: Message from Sara Black

On May 4th and 5th 2013, a collaborative group of architects, designers, and builders including Professor of Sculpture Rod Northcutt (Miami University), Architect and Urban Planner Charlie Vinz (Rebuild Foundation), and Professor of Visual Arts Sara Black (Antioch College) will lead the next phase of the Tea Pavilion Design Build Project with Antioch College students and community members. Student participants who have worked to develop the tea pavilion thus far include: Sam Senzek, Maisie Taibbi, Rachael Smith, Nargees Jumahan, Adam Abraham, Gabe Amrhein, Cleo van der Veen and Ben Daniels. Community members include Nevin Mercede, Jim Rose, Joshua Miller, Tomaz Williams, Carissa Burkett, Ethan Miller, Dennie Eagleson and Antioch College Farm Director Kat Christen.

The process began last April with a design charrette in which students developed an innovative design for the structure developed around the ritual process of building, the event of harvesting, steeping and drinking tea inspired by many cultures, and the importance of ’water’ on the farm. Since the charrette just over one year ago, students and community members in Yellow Springs along with the grounds crew at Antioch College took down and salvaged the material from the existing structure built in the 1970’s, poured footings for the new structure, pulled up the concrete from the non-functioning pond, placed a stone ’foot print’ using stones harvested by hand from a nearby limestone quarry, constructed and roofed the renewed Tea Shelter structure, partially constructed a cordwood and mortar wall.

Materials have included a mix of soft and hard cordwoods from the Glen (as donated by George Bieri), a local source (as donated by Paul Abendroth), White Oak salvaged from the floor of the previous structure (now the posts and lintels), White Oak floor joists (as donated to the project by Richard Lapedes with the help of Richard Zopf), and limestone from the nearby quarry.

This weekend it is our goal to complete the cordwood and mortar wall and realize the rain catchment system. If time allows we may begin working to line and landscape the adjacent pond. If you are AT ALL interested in joining the crew for the weekend, please come! We will begin working on Saturday and Sunday at 9 am and finish around 5pm. We will have a one hour lunch break each day.

Please RSVP to Sara Black if you would like to participate: sblack@antiochcollege.org.

I look forward to seeing you this weekend!

:: Documentary film screening: When the Iron Bird Flies

The Dharma Center along with Antioch College invites everyone to the screening of the new documentary film, When the Iron Bird Flies, on Sunday, May 5 at 7:00 p.m. at the Glen Building. An up-close and personal journey following the astounding path of one of the world’s great spiritual traditions from the caves of Tibet to the mainstream of Western culture. The film highlights the provocative exchange between Buddhist practitioners and Western scientists and educators now at the heart of the emergence of a genuine Western tradition of Buddhism. The film’s producer and co-director, Amber Bemak a 2002 Antioch grad, Antioch Buddhist Studies India alum, and former Dharma Center resident, will be on hand to answer questions about her film. Admission is free!

:: Antioch College Menu and Dining Hall information

The North Hall Dining Room opens at 12:00 p.m. and we serve until lunch until 1:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. 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. We also ask that shoes and shirts be worn in the dinning room at all times and that food not be taken “to-go” unless you are unable to join us for a meal during the established meal time. Thank you!
