Most Helpful Review for Santa Clara University

The faculty offer much more than what textbooks can do. Not only that, but just seeing all different types of people from different backgrounds builds the social aspect as well as the classroom aspect. It's also very easy to get to know people since the campus and size isn't obscenely huge. With that said, class sizes are also small, so there's many chances to, you know, get to remember people?

    SCU has a beautiful campus with beautiful people. Go here if you're looking for a casual school with good academics and a decent social scene. Don't go here if you're looking for top tier academics or cannot deal with a diverse group of students.

    Santa Clara is a private school that offers everything I could want in a university. The food is delicious, the dorms (RLC's as they are known on campus) are clean and spacious, the professors are easy to talk to, and the campus is beautiful. I am excited to start taking my chosen classes and live there.
