Every year the bell of St. John’s College’s McDowell Hall rings to mark an important rite of passage for seniors at the third oldest college in the country. St. John’s seniors will be allowed one celebratory peal between 11:30pm February 1st and  and 12:30 a.m. on February 2nd, commemorating the completion of the senior essay that is due earlier that evening.

The senior essay is an exploration of a book or a question that is meant to draw on all the skills and ideas cultivated in four years of reading and discussing great books.

Seniors will turn in their essays in before midnight February 1. Then they  press a button to sound the bell in McDowell Hall’s cupola.

This spring, seniors will participate in formal, hour-long oral exams on their essays. These examinations represent the culmination of their academic life at St. John’s. Seniors typically choose topics of particular interest to them from their studies of the foundational works of Western civilization.
