From St. John's College - Annapolis

St. John’s College is a place where students study the works of history’s greatest thinkers. Students in Annapolis and Santa Fe have established traditions that date back decades or longer, from signing the college register during their first day on campus to taking part in “senior prank” days before graduation. Students, called “Johnnies,” enjoy many of the same activities as their predecessors from years past. Learn more about our college history.

    St. John's has a very unique Great Books curriculum with a discussion based classroom. The form of learning and the rewards you reap from this type of education is priceless. Freshman year begins with the Greek classics, and then from then we go consecutively through time and everyone does the same classes all four years. It is a very small school which can sometimes make you feel a little suffocated, but there is a large variety of clubs and activities to fully engage yourself in - from athletics to knitting club; you can always find your Niche!

    At St. John's College, we read Great Books, we welcome questions and inquiries. My tutor told me one seminar, "Be perplexed and bring your perplexity to the seminar."
    The program rigorous, you're constantly swamped with readings, with strict attendance policy, small classes with an average of 16 people.
    There's no finals nor midterm at St. John's, we have orals and don rags. End of each semester, in Don rags all your 5 tutors gather and give a report about your class performance as if you're not present. But all that to say, don't fret, the tutors are amazing. You will meet the most brilliant, kindest tutors here.
    Socially, t might take some time to find a good group of friends you fit in, but people are really kind. It's an idiosyncratic school. And as a small school pretty much everything that happens on campus is conspicuous whether good or bad.
    Campus Food and housing aren't the best, but education is something you really can't replicate elsewhere.
    I graduated from St. John's and continued my graduate studies at an Ivy League School, where I also taught. The difference in attitude to learning between St. John's students and the ones is remarkable. At St. John's learning was embrace and celebrated; we wrote, we read, we discussed and along the way we made life long friends and lived within a community that hummed with learning. At this Ivy League, the students are competitive and uncooperative. Their overreaching concern is not learning because of interest in the subject, but how to maintain their GPA. The focus of Ivy League professors is on publishing-- and the whole place has a corporate money-driven feel. At St. John's, I had the time and the support to explore, to write, and to invest myself in my education.
