  • I love so much that I would like to make a year/semester at Santa Clara Uni. This is really very nice. It is nothing in comparison of size with Stanford but very much worth visiting the University. The staff in reception or admissions are eager to help and very good people. I really liked my visit to Santa Clara Uni.

  • This is a beautiful campus. I came here for the Heart & Sole run sponsored by Silicon Valley Leadership Group. It’s very clean and Mission Santa Clara is right in the middle of Campus.
  • Very poor customer service. Well below the typical American standard. I recommend looking elsewhere if you need support or timely responses to questions
  • Wonderful campus - we took the tour and were very impressed. The Athletic Dept "wow-ed" us. We met a number of smart, friendly students who were very helpful. The Mission Church ane Gardens are lovely. Two pals are teachers there...rave about it. Many friends graduated from SCU - all glowing with praise. ESp love the Sullivan Aquatic Center. Wow!
  • We go to walk around campus all the time because the landscaping is awesome and the architecture is amazing! If you go for a stroll near the chapel on Sunday, you might catch the choir singing. You need a permit to take professional pictures.
  • my friend goes here and i think she likes it. her nickname is eia, so if you find hear tell i say "hello eia".
