Santa Clara University is the oldest higher education institution in California.This private university has “more selective admissions” and ranks #2 in Regional Universities West and #12 in the West by U.S. News & World Report and Forbes, respectively. Founded by the Society of Jesus, the campus surrounds Mission Santa Clara de Asis, a Spanish mission established in 1777. SCU offers a program where students can use information learned in the classroom to solve problems for nonprofits called the Frugal Innovation Hub.
Santa Clara University is a college where the sky is the limit for any dedicated student. With hundreds of opportunities to get involved in school activities other than school itself, Santa Clara truly allows students to be their own person. If you like the sunshine and a friendly environment full of dedicated professors and loyal friends, Santa Clara is the place for you.

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.
