“Beautiful and Historic College”
Review of St. John's College

St. John's College
Ranked #19 of 90 things to do in Annapolis
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 15, 2012

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. Just such a beautiful campus! She loves the education she's getting there - and although I can't speak to that, I know she's recommend it to anyone.

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 philosophical discussion, as it what they live and breathe.

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 USNA (Johnnies almost always prevail) in April. SJC also holds events and lectures throughout the year that the public can attend. If your'e in town when the chorus performs, don't miss it. The entire audience (mostly current students and alumni) sing along. There are no professors at St. John's, just tutors, and the students attend small classes and seminars sitting around wooden tables rather than at desks. They address each other as Miss or Mr. and much of what they learn is based on discussion and the Great Books. Truly a unique institution. You might also want to check out a play put on by the students or the Mitchell Art gallery as well.

a stroll through the St John's campus is an Annapolis attraction not to be missed.

A great spot to sit and read or lie down and snooze.
