Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2016

I attended AUC these past two years to complete a bachelor degree I'd begun at a local junior college years ago. AUC admissions made on-boarding effortless by keeping me on track with the expected paperwork. I was surprised when they asked me for a Statement of Purpose, but glad they did as it revealed a rigor to their admissions process that I wanted. Financial Aid was easy to work with and considerate, though I think they could do more to help lower-income students, especially after the first year. Still, the program was reasonable, the professors all expert, knowledgeable and helpful. Many suggested I apply to grad school knowing that AUC doesn't offer graduate degrees in writing. If you do enough research on Antioch University, you'll inevitably uncover the controversial split with Antioch College. At first, I thought this was another case of the wholesale purchase of a reputation for exploitation--but AUC lives and breathes the words of founder, Horace Mann, "Be ashamed to die until you have won some victory for humanity" by first instilling them upon their student body and then by aspiring to do so themselves. More reasonably priced than many state universities, they don't up the cost for out-of-state students in their online programs (a practice that makes no sense to me whatsoever). I was thrilled to find Antioch University because they offered the things I really wanted most: private, not-for-profit university with a brick and mortar campus (five, actually), and a liberal arts degree focused on the study of writing. I was accepted to grad school on the basis of my work and recommendations from Antioch faculty. That alone should be enough to convince you of the quality of the degree.
