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?

    Santa Clara University is a school that truly allows every student to create their own unique experience and develop a deeper understanding of who they are. It offers plenty of diverse programs, clubs, and activities without being so large that it feels overwhelming. Perfectly located in Silicon Valley, it looks like a country club and feels like a home away from home.

    I can't imagine myself anywhere other than Santa Clara. Kind people, beautiful weather, and an amazing education make me realize I landed at my dream school. If Santa Clara isn't on your radar it should be, and if you see yourself as a perspective Bronco do yourself a favor and apply.

    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.

    This University flies under the radar. People always think about big name schools, but when you actually come and visit and spend sometime here, it is the most amazing place you could attend college.
