During Antioch College's 2017 Reunion, alumni visited the WYSO studios and shared their stories with current Antioch students and WYSO staff members.  This edition of the Antioch Word features Antioch alumna Renata Manasse Schwebel, Class of 1953, who spoke with Dustin Mapel, a fellow welder and WYSO Community Voices producer. In this interview, Reneta, who passed away earlier this spring, speaks about her favorite co-op experience and instructor during her time at Antioch and how she made a career for herself as a sculptor.

This interview was edited by Rachel Isaacson, current Miller Fellow at WYSO and co-host of The Antioch Word, a podcast for the Antioch College community, about Antioch College written and produced by Antioch College students working at WYSO.
