Annapolis provides the perfect backdrop for Johnnie life. Students move seamlessly from the seminar table to sailing on nearby College Creek, performing on stage with the King William Players, swing-dancing during weekend waltz parties, and lining up the perfect shot on the croquet pitch or soccer field. The small waterfront city provides rich history, great restaurants, and diverse music venues. Even better, the cultural and career hubs of DC, New York, and Baltimore are just a bus or train ride away.
Our on-campus art gallery offers several world-class exhibitions per year, showcasing artists such as Rembrandt, Matisse, and Warhol alongside local art and artists.
Every year, thousands of visitors flood campus in their spring finest for a storied croquet match between the Johnnies and the U.S. Naval Academy Midshipmen. Food, drinks, dancing, and more make for a festive day.
