I really love St. John's College. It is the perfect school for readers and 'bookworms'. It helps you to think generally by teaching you not just one major but a lot of majors. A Johnie can talk in the midst of doctors, lawyers, engineers, psychologists, psychiatrists and a host of other professions, without feeling like a fool. Santa Fe is absolutely amazing too. The food is 'fingerlickingly' awesome and the climate is good. The people are very friendly and helpful. A Johnie experience is second to none.

St. John's Santa Fe is the best place for me to be able to do what I love most in life: bike, hike, read, write, and discuss the great books with tutors. If you like history, philosophy, literature, mathematics, foreign language, or any combination of them, this is the place for you. One thing I would like to see change is the student body's attitude towards partying. It's not as bad as some places, but studying and reviewing material more often and more consistently would greatly increase the excellence of the students and the school overall.
St. John's doesn't have a great Niche rating, but it offers one of the most unique and rigorous academic programs out there. It has a high acceptance rate but is very self selecting, and many of students end up leaving because it is so intense.

They run a discussion based, great books program. You might lay hands on two textbooks during your 4 years. The rest of what you read (and you will read A LOT) is primary sources-- covering math, science, history, philosophy, literature, music, and language. For example in Freshman math, you read through about 2/3 of Euclid's Elements, and begin Ptolemy's Almagest.

I LOVE this school. Every liberal arts college claims to teach critical thinking, but I think St. John's Delivers that on another level. Professors expect you to make intelligent sense of a lot of very difficult texts, very fast. If you can figure out chemistry from Berthollet and Proust, you can probably figure most things out. Its a challenge, if you're looking for one.
