Thoughts on Antioch

Most people know that my time at Antioch was very important to me. I was just reading a friend's journal, and something that she was talking about was making me think of Antioch, and, specifically, of The Antioch College Honor Code. I wanted to post that Honor Code here:

Antioch College is a community dedicated to the search for truth, the development of individual potential, and the pursuit of social justice. In order to fulfill our objectives, freedom must be matched by responsibility. As a member of the Antioch Community, I affirm that I will be honest and respectful in all my relationships, and I will advance these standards of behavior in others.

Still, now, I find those words deeply moving. I find them to be a wonderful ideal to strive toward. I hope that I can find the strength to be honest and respectful in all my relationships, and to advance those standards of behavior in others.
