Thank goodness this college exists and thrives! Subscribe to the president's blog and you will know why. The campus is worth a quick tour - it is one of the nation's oldest colleges and a charming setting. It is within a two minute walk from downtown Annapolis.

Beautiful place, we didn't stop in any place but we did cover the grounds. The boat house area is kinda cool and if there was more activity there it would have been really neat.

Although a walk through the campus is lovely and peaceful when visiting Annapolis, please take time to visit the Mitchell Gallery on site. They have a variety of changing exhibits, often offering free lectures. The bookstore is a treasure....and worth a purchase or two.

My husband and I are alums so we visit and go to seminars, but for non-Johnies the campus is lovely and often quiet. Visit the Mitchell Gallery. If you are there on a Friday night, you might be interested in the free lecture. A number of the buildings are historic including McDowell Hall.

The grounds are beautiful. We chose to get married in one of the historic buildings on the property and it was a wonderful venue for something so special.

St, John's College is a small liberal college situated right at the edge of the heart of Annapolis. A small college campus with no unique buildings and land mark.
