Thanksgiving in the Dining Hall!

In Annapolis and Santa Fe, we’re getting ready for a quick break to celebrate the Thanksgiving Holiday. Last week, the Annapolis campus was able to get a quick preview of break with a Thanksgiving Day Meal.

Snow

On this Thursday morning a week before Thanksgiving, the St. John’s College campus in Santa Fe received an unexpected snow fall! What was supposed to be a light dusting has turned into a few inches and counting. You might ask why I was out in this weather? Well, these photos and the video were taken…

Behind the Scenes

It all began with a script…a script about the adventures of Johnnies. At St. John’s, we are always working toward new ways to share the student experience with prospective Johnnies. We do this through emails, campus visits, one-on-one meetings, phone calls, images, and video. It can sometimes seem daunting trying to keep all messaging platforms…

Travel Season Begins!

September always marks the start of when our admissions counselors leave the office and head out onto the road, to meet with prospective students. This year we thought it might be kind of fun to introduce our counselors through video to you all! We gave them a couple of questions to answer about their experiences…

Green Chile Capital of the World!

In Santa Fe, the first question is red or green. The Chile pepper has been a keystone of New Mexican cuisine for centuries, and has also stood as a symbol for the hardy, vibrant, and eclectic community of Santa Fe. A new ad campaign, just launched by the state of New Mexico, goes in depth…
