YELLOW SPRINGS, Ohio (AP) - A small, western Ohio liberal arts college that reopened as an independent school after a three-year shutdown plans to continue offering all its students free tuition through a fellowship program for two more years.
Antioch College in Yellow Springs says students who start in 2013 and 2014 will be offered the fellowships as the school works toward accreditation and increased enrollment.
It has about 100 students now. Its trustees have approved a plan to enroll 75 or more students in each of the next three years.
The college had closed in 2008 amid financial problems and reopened with the help of an alumni-led group.
Antioch says cooperative education is a key part of its strategy, and its students complete four quarters of full-time, off-campus work.
