College of the Day: St. John's College

In Annapolis lies a small, liberal arts college that is very unique in several ways. First, St. Johns College is one of the smallest post-secondary institutions in Maryland. Second, St. Johns College is recognized as one of the Colleges That Change Lives because of its open-minded nature, pushing students to expand their minds primarily, without focusing on specific career-training skills. Third, its Reading List is the means that it uses to challenge students to think critically about the world around them - and these critical thinking skills are what are so highly valued by employers, with the assumption that skills can be learned, but a good thinker is of the utmost priority.
