It may sound a bit over-romanticized, but a graduate degree from St. John’s College is truly a life-changing experience. To spend time reading amazing texts and discussing themes such as virtue, truth, reason, and belief has profoundly impacted not only my teaching, but everything that is in the context of my life. My entire world view is forever influenced by my experience at St. John’s.
"It is a peculiar sensation, this double-consciousness, this sense of always looking at one's self through the eyes of others, of measuring one's soul by the tape of a world that looks on in amused contempt and pity."
- W.E.B. Du Bois
