A friend of mine who I was lucky to meet during his visit to SJC as a prospie just decided to enroll here. He’s pretty chuffed about the decision (as we think he should be), so I’ll let him tell you about it in his own words. This is his facebook status from earlier today:
After careful deliberation, it is with great excitement and joy on my part to announce that I will be attending St. John’s College in Santa Fe, New Mexico in the fall. How could I realistically turn down four years of thorough primary source study within the liberal arts and Western Philosophical canon? I’m more than ready, quite eager, to embark on four years of intensive conversation, dialogue, and thought. I have never been to a more organic or intellectual environment in my life, and I am proud to say that I have the privilege of attending St. John’s.
Aww, stop it. We’re blushing. Glad you had such a great time visiting, and super pumped to welcome you and all the new freshmen this autumn.
If you’re still deciding whether the Program that teaches you how to think rather than what to think is right for you, remember that you may make your deposit at any time!
After many years of dreaming about coming to the college that dream is finally a reality for my wife and I. We both echo the sentiment of the prospective student quoted here; it is if his words could have been our own. But most of all, we are excited for the journey that starts in the fall.
