Visit St. John's College, West


Fresh air and expansive views make Santa Fe an incredibly appealing place to pursue graduate study in liberal arts or Eastern classics. The campus borders on a national forest and it isn’t unusual to find nearby trails dotted with Johnnies, reading in patches of sun in winter or pools of shade in summer. Our sunsets are sublime and people find the sight of them from campus especially inspiring. The center of campus, called the Weigle Placita, features a fishpond, a waterfall, and numerous benches. It’s a welcoming terrace where students and faculty gather at all times of the day.


The best way to know if St. John’s College is the right place for you is to visit, sit in on classes, get to know students and faculty, and explore Santa Fe. You will see for yourself how this education works, talk with students and faculty members informally outside of class, and learn what this community of serious inquiry and conversation means to them—gathering insights that will help you decide what it could mean to you.


The office of Graduate Admissions will facilitate your tour of campus. Our facilities include Levan Hall— home to the Graduate Institute—Meem Library, and the Student Activities Center. Levan Hall is a LEED Gold Certified building that houses the William Darkey Common Room, three seminar rooms, staff and faculty offices, and gallery space. Large windows offer sweeping views of the surrounding Santa Fe scenery. Our graduate common room is named after William Darkey, a founding faculty member and former dean of St. John’s College in Santa Fe. Graduate students have exclusive use of this spacious, comfortable study room that offers many convenient amenities.
