REVIEWS OF St. John's College IN New Mexico

Louis Gonzalez

Most colleges are simply just school. St. John's College is a life experience.

Mike Blumenthal

A unique curriculum and learning environment. A lot to be gained by the student that engages the literature and the process fully.

Lisa Russell

Great place for a picnic!

I attended the freshman year there. As long as I can remember I have always tried to tackle the profound in religion, philosophy and literature. If these depths can truly be plumed outside of a divine epiphany this would be the place to do it. Not only are you studying the most outstanding literary works of the western world with truly outstanding scholars you are surrounded by a marvelous landscape. Each evening in the dining room you witness as the sun go down over the Sangre de Cristo mountain range on the horizon. My attempts to plumb these depths were vapid and vacuous until sometime later I stumbled upon Jesus on the way, who is indeed profundity itself. This school has all that serious scholarship can offer in all the most serious of implications within a liberal arts context. To top it off: it is located just a few miles away from the Pecos Wilderness Area where you can backpack and hike to the nth degree, dismiss the folly of mankind's great thinkers and contemplate the Divine in HIs handiwork...

Excellent college! One of a kind. For the serious student who wants to aquire a profound culture and knowledge. Education for a life time. Students learn to think, as oppose to just go through courses. You can find thoughtful friends who share the same interests. It's also fun and the school buildings and grounds are absolutely gorgeous surrounded by stunning geography. You can hike and go skiing or to the opera in town. You got it all there: great education and stunning and relaxing country. If you don't visit you will never know.

OK, full disclosure, I'm a Johnnie. I've visited over !00 colleges over the last three years in my job an independent college counselor, and I've seen some wonderful schools. With the possible exceptions of Hampshire, Evergreen State, New College (Florida) Deep Springs, Marlboro, and Shimer there is simply no place in America that offers so radically wonderful an education dedicated to the life of the mind as St John's. (I'm excluding schools such as Reed and Whitman and Pomona and Grinnell as wonderful but regular liberal arts colleges.) These schools, each in its own distinctive way, are St John's equals. It has no superior. It is a intellectual's dream come true. Loren Pope is right. I started in the Graduate Institute and stayed for the undergraduate, dropping my acceptance to work on a Ph.D. in Elizabethan Studies at University of Washington in order to stay at St John's to get a second BA. Yes, it's that special. I had found my self sitting on the edge of my bed crying at the thought I was going to have to leave this place where I had found what I had always thought a college education would be to pursue my doctorate. So I didn't . And no, I am not easily given to tears. If you love to read, if you want to figure out the symbiotic intersections of geometry, philosophy, music, physics, politics, rhetoric, literature, religion and astronomy (among other disciplines) in small group discussions with only full professors and 'the big books' of the Western cannon (no text books) then this is the place for you. And it is unique. No other school, none, trusts its students to play with the big boys, and demands that they do, as St John's does. Period. End of story. But you'd better love to read... alot.

Transformative, rigorous, “contrarian” college. Virtually unknown among the stat-chasers, highly regarded among academic circles. Serious book hoarders. Must love reading... (science, math, language, music, philosophy will inevitably follow from the classic lit format and intense Socratic classes.)

How does an American college maintain a 5 star rating on google? This has to be an inside job. Everyone knows the American educational system is a joke

Nikolos Gurney

Stayed in the dorms while participating in a graduate workshop. Great staff, engaging students, and idyllic setting.
