I heard it was closing but didn't know about all this, or what Antioch
University was.  It's a shame

Where the Arts Were Too Liberal

THIS is an obituary for a great American institution whose death was
announced this week. After 155 years, Antioch College is closing.

Established in 1852 in Yellow Springs, Ohio, by the kind of
free-thinking Christian group found only in the United States, Antioch
College was egalitarian in the best tradition of American liberalism.
The college's motto, not in Latin or Greek but plain English, was
coined by Horace Mann, its first president: "Be ashamed to die until
you have won some victory for humanity."
