The annual Alumni Magazine, published each summer, is a look at you and your fellow alumni—what you are doing, how you are living and modeling the Program, and how you are giving back to St. John’s in meaningful ways. It is a look at the connections you are creating around the world, and it is your guide to making them even stronger. Look forward to the 2023 edition of the Alumni Magazine landing in mailboxes and inboxes this summer.

Continuing the Conversation Web & Podcast Series
Conversations between great thinkers have shaped society for millennia. At St. John’s College, we engage in these conversations continually: through books, authors, and ideas that have shaped human history, which we read and discuss together. In this web and podcast series, St. John’s College faculty invite us in on these conversations, offering a personal seat at a table open to all—a table around which we seek wisdom through our shared intellectual history; around which joy is experienced as thinkers truly connect; around which the mystery of who we are as humans, and why we see each other and the world as we do, is explored with openness and curiosity. From the Ancients to the Moderns, from the West to the East, from the profound to the personal: this is Continuing the Conversation. Watch or listen now.
Books and a Balance Podcast
Listen on Libsyn, Spotify, or Apple Podcasts
St. John’s College is dedicated to a strange idea—that education is for the sake of freedom. Our motto promises to “make free human beings out of children by means of books and a balance.” As the oldest Great Books school in the US, we’ve been working at this for a while. So what is a liberal education? What is its future? And what do books—and conversations about them—have to do with freedom and the life of the mind? Through conversations with a range of guests, St. John's tutors Brendan Boyle and David McDonald explore the meaning of liberal education, its power in the lives of individuals, and the economic, political, and cultural pressures it faces. Feedback and questions welcome at booksandabalance(at)sjc.edu.
