Simon Moon's alma mater to reopen?

As I wrote earlier, one of the main characters in ILLUMINATUS!, Simon Moon, studied at a very real Ohio school, Antioch College. (Moon of course also is a character in Schroedinger's Cat, and also pops up in other writings.)

The school ran out of money and shut down in 2008, but progress apparently is being made to get it open again. The Yellow Springs News — a periodical which I'm guessing Robert Anton Wilson read when he lived in the area — reported that the superintendent of the Pittsburgh is visiting the campus next week as one of two finalists for the president's position.
