Alumni Association

Upon graduation, all Johnnies become part of the St. John’s College Alumni Association. The Alumni Association is an independent group that works closely with the college to increase opportunities for alumni engagement.

The association’s mission is to advocate for fellow alumni and the continued excellence of our college by celebrating our distinctive educational experience. We work to connect our community members for shared support and benefit and to foster a culture of generosity and service.

The Alumni Association has a board of directors, elected by and from the alumni body, and multiple volunteer working groups. Volunteers create the foundation of the association’s success by lending their time, energy, and expertise in support of the college’s programs and principles. Some volunteer commitments are large and others are quite flexible.
