4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The variety of courses is great and the professors are very good.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Being located in Silicon Valley, internships are abundant around the school.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The school really tries to keep students healthy.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: There are plenty of housing options and getting what you want is pretty easy.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: The Greek life is unofficial but is there if one wants to get involved.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Nearly the entire school is involved from playing their sports, to organizing events, or just being a fan. Anyone can use the athletic facilities and they are of very good quality.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The students are very welcoming and helpful to new students. The faculty, staff, and professors were very informative and helpful as well. The campus is very beautiful as well and students have school spirit, which make it a very good atmosphere to live in. Additionally, being in the heart of Silicon Valley allows easy access to many internships.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: It's minimal in the number of groups but it has a somewhat large presence on campus.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Classes are extremely difficult. Professors care about student success and easy to find to talk to about class.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Diversity is getting bigger, but it is still largely comprised of certain groups.

3 College Senior

Diversity: The campus is not super diverse ethnically, but everyone is generally acceptive of the LGBTQ community or of people of various religions or economic status.

3 College Senior

Drug Safety: There is a lot of drinking and marijuana use. There are people who use hard drugs, but no one pressures you into using those. Most people drink, but they don't hold it against you if you don't. You have to find friends who have similar interests.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Most professors are very smart, helpful, and great teachers. There are a couple of exceptions and the students have evaluated them appropriately, but nothing has changed. I would like the school to respond and take action of professors are receiving such low marks or a majority of the class is failing.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I have received multiple internships as a result of the career fair and value of the SCU engineering program. The program is highly regarded and there is not a problem for me or my peers.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: I feel very safe walking through or around campus at any time. I don't know anyone who has been sexually assaulted but I know there have been only a couple of issues throughout my time there.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: There are different types of dorms to suite everyone's need or desires. Most dorms have been updated or remodeled to provide nicer housing than a lot of colleges.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: I don't participate in Greek life, but they are known for hosting parties and formals. They are not affiliated with the university, so they are student run and funded.

4 College Senior

Athletics: The fields and facilities are nice. They could update and expand the recreation gym that all students use.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I love my school! There are small class sizes but plenty of resources available. We have great facilities and labs to compliment the classroom lectures. We obtain a lot of hands on experience which is very beneficial as an engineer.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love the school and everything that it is providing for me. I couldn't ask for anything better.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The degrees from this school are some of the best in the country. People are very likely to find a job after they graduate.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: It could be better, because I have had friends and classmates who had become victims to sexual assault.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: All the housing options are great and have their goods and bads. I wish it was a little easier to get into the building you would want though.

Mission Santa Clara de Asis
Mission Santa Clara de Asis

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Inspired by its Jesuit roots, Santa Clara's mission to educate the whole person by engaging the mind, body, and spirit encourages its students to maintain a healthy balance between work and play. Santa Clara's diverse academic, extracurricular, and community service opportunities make it easy for students to do what they love and to tailor their SCU experience accordingly. Though many students initially have a tough time adjusting (typical for most college freshmen), taking advantage of the resources provided by the strong campus community can help make the transition process easier. Thriving at Santa Clara requires finding your niche, which can take awhile, but is worth it once you do. 

Most students cite weather, location, and academics as Santa Clara's greatest strengths, and they appreciate the active and supportive community on campus. While many students agree that they would change certain aspects of the school if they could (the cost of tuition taking priority), most feel pretty satisfied with their Santa Clara experience.
