I walked through this beautiful campus while on a guided tour of Annapolis. The 36-acre Annapolis campus is in the heart of the historic capital of Maryland, on the Chesapeake Bay. St. John's College is a direct descendant of King William's School, founded in 1696. The present site of the college was proposed as early as 1761, making it one... More

We were married in the meeting hall here over 20 years ago. Wonderful setting and very reasonable. American history you can experience for yourself.

Our daughter is a grad student at St. John's, so when we helped her move there a year ago and then visited her last week, she gave us a tour of the campus and the buildings she frequents.

Well, my visit was special because I was with a young friend who was a student there. The personal tour always is the best, of course. But if you can arrange a visit of any sort, you will be impressed by the aura of the Great Book authors and the stately buildings on the campus. Students may engage you in... More

Being a parent of a "johnnie" would have influenced me if I needed to be influenced. This is academia and introspection in the form of higher education. The campus is very nice, and worth a look when in Annapolis. Frances Scott Key was an alumni, and be sure not to miss the annual croquet match between St. John's and the... More

Beautiful campus. Certainly to be considered if I were a prospective student. Located in the historic center of town, walking distance to attractions and MANY restaurants, as well as waterfront.

Third oldest college in the country with terrific architecture to appreciate and hundred year old trees shading some rolling lawns right down to the creek. Quaint and compact
