St. John's is one of the oldest universities in the United States. I would highly recommend a stroll through campus when in town. They have a nice small art gallery on campus. Charming place. Alma mater of Francis Scott Key.

Walking distance to downtown, St. John's allows visitors access to many buildings, so take special advantage of the art displays. The campus is more like a nice open easy-walking city park. This college is based on knowing the world's top thinkers, so you'll find students...More

It's a beautiful, historic campus with plenty of walking space, but it's hard to know exactly what to do and see unless you went to the college. Beautiful and small campus that is easy to walk around in.

We took a one hour +/- walk around this campus enjoying the atmosphere of the college kids, the historical buildings, and the attractive grounds. We stopped in the bookstore which is rather small. The general experience was pleasant and we enjoyed our walk.
