Significant change in the character of Antioch College did not stop with the departure of Arthur Morgan. Differential assessments normally made by professors of those who do and do not teach on a campus tended persistently to undercut esteem. All students paid full tuition whether they were off or on campus in a given term, at a level similar to other leading private colleges. A defining characteristic of the modern Antioch is that much authority resides in the hands of faculty and students. The ideals and sentiments of the administration and faculty provided leeway and some impulse, and the students took it from there. The Quaker spirit became intertwined with and acted as a support for many of those features of the Morgan philosophy that became part of the long-lasting Antioch ideals. The significance of this financial benefit was not lost on trustees, administrators, and faculty, and at times it was crucial.
