      St. John's College - Annapolis Reviews

      The school is definitely unconventional and could benefit students who enjoy Philosophy and Literature. However, the lack of freedom may discourage people. Ancient Greek for many is a dull class. Depending on your classmates the experience may be fulfilling or dry. Personally, the discussions are repetitive, people lack to address challenging questions, and I end most classes thinking I failed to learn anything. Campus life is exciting for extroverted individuals, but for people who dislike drinking, smoking, or generally socializing, your days will be full of isolation and boredom. Athletics is also poor as the only competitive sports are crewing, fencing, and sailing. The coed intermural sports are fun but somewhat frustrating for experienced players. Rules are oriented to prevent injuries and the playing time depends on the captains. Despite all this, many students, alumni, and tutors (professors) state that the experience improves over time.

      Most colleges prepare you for a career. SJC prepares you for life of continued learning. It is not for everyone and the high acceptance rate reflects that students largely self-select for this place. To succeed here you need to love to read and have an appetite for the challenging, the disquieting, the revelatory. When I hear about students at other colleges today expecting "safe spaces" I chuckle. SJC is like the Marine Corps for your intellect. If you make it to graduation, you will know what it is to strain every intellectual sinew. You will know Aristotle, Shakespeare, Kant and Darwin, but not C++, cell biology, or feminist social theory. However, no intellectual exercise after college will ever intimidate you. You will be able to read. You will be able to write. You will be able to talk about important things. You will have some idea where all the ideas we take for granted come from. You will be comfortable considering possibilities others find dangerous and frightening.
      I couldn't have dreamed of the life-changing education provided by St. John's. What most schools call professors, we call tutors because they don't profess. Tutors are the most experienced learners in the classroom, there not to run the conversation, but to provide an opening question and guidance along the way. Because it is a discussion style classroom, you are really in charge of what you are talking about and learning. Annapolis is the capital of Maryland, and there are always events going on downtown, only a 5 minute walk from campus. When the town is sleeping, SJC usually has something else happening on campus-- parties or social gatherings. There's a wide variety of clubs on campus geared towards your interests, and they are always evolving depending on our polity. It's an amazing place, with intelligent and successful students who go on to be everything from doctors and engineers to lawyers and businessmen to PhD teachers and winemakers.
