Antioch University Highly Rated By U.S. News for Serving Adult Students

U.S. News released a report ranking schools based on the percentage of students enrolled in undergraduate programs in the 2014-2015 academic year age 25 or older, and Antioch University’s Midwest (AUM) campus came in as number one. When all five campuses are combined, the University as a whole would be ranked fifth in the country, demonstrating that Antioch University offers a very attractive learning environment for adult students.

 

Antioch University has a long history of serving adult students completing bachelor’s degrees or pursuing advanced degrees. The report ranked AUM first with 95% of its students older than 25. Enrollment data for all of Antioch University’s five campuses throughout the U.S. shows that more than 82 percent of the university’s students are 25 or older have ranked the university as fifth in the nation.

 

The recent announcement on the U.S. News website states: “Not all students set out for college immediately after high school graduation. Some enlist in the military, spend time in the workforce or take time off to travel the world. For those who choose to go to college later in life, having classmates who reflect their age, interests and experiences can help ease the transition from the ‘real world’ to the world of an undergraduate student.”

 

The statement mirrors Antioch University’s focus, culture and emphasis on transformative education for working adults.

 

“Adult learners prefer to be in an environment with other adults, especially undergraduates who are returning to complete a degree,” said Felice Nudelman, chancellor of Antioch University. “For decades, we have tailored our academic programs, course scheduling, experiential learning opportunities and student services to help non-traditional students succeed. The U.S. News data, combined with our own research, demonstrates that the environment we have created is very attractive to students who are attracted to Antioch University.”

 

The University has a national and international reach through its five campuses in Keene, New Hampshire, Los Angeles and Santa Barbara, California, Seattle, Washington, Yellow Springs, Ohio, its online programs through Antioch University Connected, and its PhD in Leadership and Change program.
