Santa Fe Life
Students will spend four years reading, discussing, and developing lifelong friendships. Campus life unfolds in the Student Activity Center, Fine Arts Building, pottery studio, student-run art gallery, coffee shop and sports field. Off-campus adventures include exploring Santa Fe’s vast arts and culture scene, hiking and biking the Rocky Mountains, kayaking the Rio Grande’s canyons and lakes, and interning in the city’s science, arts, and alternative medicine sectors, among others.
Live bands, poetry readings, archery tournaments, bike mechanics and guerrilla seminars. Forego the flash for the real.
1-minute walk to the Atalaya trailhead, which connects students to Santa Fe county’s 400+ miles of interconnected trail systems.
30-minute drive to the Santa Fe Ski Basin’s 89 trails—and just two hours to six ski basins including the world-class Taos Ski Valley.
45-minute drive to water sports, outdoor rock climbing, and renowned mountain biking trails. Just an hour to the hot springs.
Santa Fe Adventure
Santa Fe is for artists, makers, and innovators; for outdoor adventurers and conservationists; for deep thinkers and spiritual seekers.
Peterson Art Gallery is our student-run art gallery, which hosts exhibits of student work as well as work from artists in Santa Fe and our surrounding communities.
This is road trip territory. Hit the mountains of Colorado, the canyonlands of Utah, the music scenes of Austin, and the beaches of L.A.
Great Books, Great Gym
The Student Activity Center houses a gym, racquetball courts, weight room, bike mechanic shop, and Outdoor Program—from which students can rent tents, mountain bikes, snowshoes and more.
St. John’s teaches you to think and supports you with funded internships. Santa Fe inspires creative thought and expansive imagination. The result leads to mind-blowing career paths.
The educational mission of St. John’s College is to foster searching consideration of the most important human questions through reading and discussion of great books—works of philosophy, literature, science, mathematics, and music. Through the study of these works, the college seeks to free human beings from prejudice and unexamined opinion, and to help students make thoughtful choices in public and private life.
