Nonstop Classes to Begin September 8th

Aug 28th, 2008

Nonstop is about to begin its first semester! We are going to continue the long tradition of liberal arts education here in Yellow Springs, Ohio. We are doing this because, as Horace Mann said, “Every addition to true knowledge is an addition to human power.”

This past year has been full of challenges. The closing of our beloved Antioch College has made many of us angry and discouraged. But now, we celebrate the fact that in less than two weeks, students and faculty will be sitting down together in houses, cafes, churches and community centers. Students will study art and anthropology and chemistry and jazz. They’ll practice journalism and art and dance with our top-notch faculty in an immersive environment of intellectual curiosity and academic rigor. They’ll become better community members by studying local economics and environmental sustainability.

Already, we’ve all become better citizens by standing up and saying, “We must continue our tradition of academic freedom and innovation. We can’t stop, and we won’t stop!” And when we get our college back next year, think of the pride we’ll feel! Nonstop not only carries on Antioch’s tradition of learning, but reinvigorates it. This experiment takes our classrooms out into the world and into uncharted territory. It has brought alumni from around the world back into our community and has garnered strong support from important academics across the country. We can think of no better way to express the Antioch spirit than through Nonstop. And through Nonstop, we’ll all be ready when it’s finally time to go home.
