“The St John’s College campus provides the perfect oasis for our annual arts and writing workshops. The beautiful, retreat-like setting offers an intimate environment for creating community among our attendees. We’ve been meeting at St John’s each summer for 10 years and have always found the service efficient, friendly, and attentive; the cafeteria nutritious, tasty, and adaptable; the grounds attractive and well-maintained; and the rooms clean and serviceable, often with gorgeous views. The surrounding landscape, with its accessible hiking trails, offers out-of-state attendees a taste of New Mexico’s incomparable natural beauty, while nearby Museum Hill and downtown Santa Fe (reachable by car, bus, or, for good walkers, by foot) offer a wealth of cultural opportunities.”
–Mary Kenagy Mitchell with the Glen Workshop
“Since 2001, the McDermott Scholars Program starts each year off on the campus of St. John’s College. We use the campus as ‘home base’ for our annual orientation for our first-year scholars. Scholars live in dorms and staff members take advantage of the apartments. We meet daily in a classroom for lectures and seminars and have breakfast and dinner in the dining hall. The McDermott Scholars always enjoy a visit to the college’s unique bookstore, and we take advantage of the nature right outside our door by hiking to the top of Mt. Atalaya. The location is perfect for our orientation because we take day trips to Taos, Los Alamos, and Bandelier, and spend the rest of our time just down the road on the Santa Fe Plaza.”
–Sherry M. and Molly S. from the University of Texas at Dallas Eugene McDermott Scholars Program
“We have had such a wonderful experience at St. John’s—the setting is spectacularly beautiful, the facilities are excellent, and the Conference Services personnel are always helpful, accommodating, and available. Our students think the dining hall has marvelous food—it does!—and they love the proximity to the Plaza and all its charms. We are very fortunate to be holding our annual Art Law program at St. John’s College.”
