Summer School Venue



Santa Fe, the charming capital New Mexico, is located at the foothills of the picturesque Sangre de Christo mountains. As the second oldest city in the United States, it offers a unique mix of history, architecture, culture, cuisine, outdoor activities and shopping in a setting that epitomizes the American Southwest. Northern New Mexico is not only a premier vacation destination but it is also home to some of the leading research and educational institutions in the nation, such as the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL), Sandia National Laboratories and the University of New Mexico. Los Alamos county has the highest concentration of PhDs per capita in the US.

The National Nuclear Physics Summer School (NNPSS) will take place at St. John’s College. St. John’s College is a liberal arts school with campuses in Annapolis, MD and Santa Fe, NM. It is our venue of choice for meetings with up to 100 participants since it provides on-site housing, meeting and dining facilities. Such an arrangement promotes active interaction between students and lecturers.
