St. John’s: Back to Classics
St. Johns, College, liberal Arts, College Experiences
Experimental colleges, with all their diversities, usually sound two common themes: flexibility and practicality. However, one experimental college runs deeply contrary to these themes. St. John’s College, with campuses in Annapolis, Maryland, and Santa Fe, New Mexico, rejects these norms and has flourished under the ethos of rigidity and intellectualism. In stark contrast to most experimental colleges, St. John’s symbolizes the neoclassical model of liberal arts colleges.
