Santa Fe Parents
Information for Parents of Incoming January Freshmen
Parent Orientation - January 17-20, 2014
Welcome to St. John’s College!
As parents, you are a vital component of the college community and we are excited to have you participate in the life of the college. The size of the January Freshmen class offers us the opportunity for a more intimate and less formal orientation program for parents. We invite you to join us for a reception with the President, Dean, and key members of the college staff in the evening of Friday, January 17, 2014. This will be a great chance for you to both receive the information you need to make a good start at the college along with your son and daughter, and to ask whatever questions you might have in a more casual setting than what is sometimes the norm. We’ll also have parent information packets for at registration that morning, beginning at 9 am on Friday, January 17, 2014, and a campus tour that morning (time TBA).
We strongly encourage you to extend your stay in Santa Fe through Monday night for the Convocation ceremony, which begins at 6:00 p.m. on Monday, January 20, 2014. Convocation marks the formal entrance of your son or daughter into the college as the faculty process in full regalia, the new students sign the college Register, and the President makes offers special remarks for the occasion. Business casual dress is requested.
You are most welcome and encouraged to visit throughout the year. Feel free to contact the Alumni Office with questions or concerns, at 505-984-6114.
