Alumni Events

From Homecoming and croquet to campus lectures and concerts to alumni gatherings in your area, there are Johnnie events in Annapolis, Santa Fe, and around the country.

Spring Events

The annual Annapolis Cup croquet match will celebrate its 40th anniversary on Saturday, April 13, 2024!

St. John’s College Day of Giving will be held on Tuesday, April 16, 2024.

St. John’s will join Santa Fe in Earth Day celebrations from Friday, April 19 through Sunday, April 21, 2024.

Fall Homecoming

Save the date! Homecoming is back on both campuses! We have adopted one reading per campus for Homecoming 2024. This mirrors the student experience of each class year reading the same assignment in multiple classrooms. We hope it will foster community spirit among alumni as you join each other throughout the weekend to compare notes on what was discussed in other sections. The readings have been selected by Dean Sarah Davis and Dean Suzy Paalman in consultation with the instruction committee on each campus, and they are Shakespeare’s As You Like It for Santa Fe and The Bacchae by Euripides for Annapolis.

We look forward to welcoming alumni back to campus on the following dates in 2024:

  • Santa Fe: September 13–15, featuring campus 60th anniversary festivities
  • Annapolis: September 27–29, including the annual Alumni Association meeting

Interested in volunteering as a Class Chair?  

The primary function of the Class Chairs is to extend personalized touches to classmates to encourage their participation in Homecoming 2024. As part of this outreach, Class Chairs work with their class to identify a preferred tutor shortlist for the all-alumni Homecoming seminar. The Alumni Engagement Office will support your selection by contacting the tutor to confirm their availability. Class chairs often also facilitate additional off-campus social events for their specific class. Should you be interested in serving this important volunteer role, please contact alumni(at) to learn about the process of obtaining contact information for your classmates.  

On-Campus Events

St. John’s College offers an array of events to both the Annapolis and Santa Fe communities, ranging from world-class music concerts and art exhibitions to academic lectures and theater performances, many of which are free and open to the public. See our comprehensive calendar of events for more!

Regional Events

Alumni gather around the country and the world to continue the life of the mind begun in our halls via a variety of vibrant programming, including seminars, cultural outings, wine tastings, and other social events. Joining an existing gathering or finding your own group is made possible via SJC Connect, our in-house social connection platform that enables Johnnies to find their fellow Johnnies. See the Groups page on SJC Connect to locate existing gatherings or use the Directory tool to find Johnnies near you (or your classmates for an online gathering!).
