Visit St. John's College
It's a good idea to visit any college you may be considering, but it is especially important in the case of St. John's because of the college's unique curriculum and teaching methods. Just as St. John’s students would rather read Plato than someone’s commentary about Plato, prospective Johnnies generally prefer to see the college for themselves so they can form their own opinions.
The college’s visit programs on the Annapolis Campus and the Santa Fe Campus are designed to give you a true feeling of both the academic and social aspects of St. John’s. The college offers stand-alone tours, single day visits, and overnight visits. In addition to a tour of the campus, during an overnight visit prospective students can stay in a dormitory and eat meals in the dining hall. Sitting in on classes provides a full picture of academic life. (Note: seminars occur on Monday or Thursday evenings only.) In addition, you will have the opportunity to meet with a faculty member and/or member of the admissions staff to discuss your questions. You’ll find St. John’s students to be friendly and willing to share their thoughts with you. The only expense for overnight visitors is transportation to campus; visitors will be provided a room in a dormitory and meals in the dining hall. If you’d like, the Admissions Office can arrange a meeting for you and your parents with a financial aid counselor.
