While the rest of the college will be welcoming you in August, the Admissions Office will in a way be bidding you farewell. What a pleasure it has been getting to know you this past year! We think you’re a terrific class, we’re sure you will bring great things to the college, and with the rest of the campus community we will delight in welcoming you into our midst.
Many of our incoming freshmen ask what they should be doing over the summer to prepare themselves for the St. John’s College experience. There are two specific assignments: read Books I-VI of the Iliad (any unabridged translation will do, but the Lattimore and Fitzgerald translations are the most beloved on campus), and memorize the Greek alphabet.
We will be in the office all summer, so call or email anytime if you have questions.
