ANTIOCH COLLEGE

Companion volume to BENNINGTON COLLEGE (P. 534) -- a study of the outstanding proponent of a college designed for liberal education through a new approach to work and study. The cooperative work program is analyzed after years of testing. The answers are given to those questioning the comparative values of liberal versus vocational plans. Antioch is demonstrably committed to increasing the human potentiality, on the score both of quality and quantity. There is discussion of the selection of students, the adviser system, the planning of courses, the orientation and testing programs, the relations of the required courses to the field courses; the contribution made to and by research, the cooperative aspects, and the community government plans. Antioch is shown as presenting in addition a full campus life. Market-similar to that of BENNINGTON COLLEGE.
