What Students Are Saying

4.18 Average Rating
Teachers are so helpful, so eager to assist their students. If you are confused, go to their office hours, get to know them. They are there to help. That is the difference between going to a big state school, and going to a wonderful school like SCU; here your teachers are ready and willing to educate you, to give you the best experience and education that is possible. Yes SCU is difficult, but it is so much better when you turn to the resources that are offered to you (student tutoring, office hours,. writing center).

as with everything, you can choose how much effort to put into your studies and that will reflect your performance. if you want to do well in your courses, learn quickly to manage your time properly.

As an engineering student Santa Clara presents me with a challenging course load, but with supportive staff, abundant tutors, and a good work ethic any class can be handled.
Logan from CA
There's a spectrum of amazing, life changing teachers and why were you hired teachers. It really just depends on what department and even what section of class you're in. It's always good to look your teachers up on ratemyprofessors when registering for classes to be safe.
