First Impressions: Santa Fe Registration

Fresh off of Registration in Annapolis, I ventured to Santa Fe to do it all again! Being new to the Annapolis SJC admissions team, I could not have been more elated for my first trip to Santa Fe.

For the Love of Dogs

Did you know we have campus dogs at St. John’s?  If you’ve ever visited our campuses, chances are you ran into Arcadia on one of her daily walks around the Annapolis campus or were greeted by Seymour at the Santa Fe library on your tour. At St. John’s, we believe that dogs not only make great…

When should I create a LinkedIn profile? How do I evaluate a job offer for non-salary benefits like health insurance and retirement savings? Should I…

Welcome, Class of 2019!

After registering and moving into their dorms, freshmen and their families, along with the entire campus community, gather for Convocation; an annual ceremony that welcomes new students and brings the college together for…
