Annapolis Convocation


The academic year for St. John’s College opens with Convocation, the annual ceremony that brings together the St. John’s community for a new year. At St. John’s, Convocation is rich with traditions that symbolize what it means to be part of this community of learners—a community where all students read the same great works of Western civilization and take part in discussion-based seminars.

 
 

"Masterpieces are not single and solitary births; they are the outcome of many years of thinking in common, of thinking by the body of the people, so that the experience of the mass is behind the single voice."
- Virginia Woolf
