There’s something special about living and learning in one of the most innovative places on Earth, Silicon Valley, where more than 80% of our students have at least one internship before graduating. Faculty and students work together, challenge each other, and grow through teamwork. Graduates thrive in every career path imaginable. Throw in small class sizes (nearly 80% have fewer than 30 students), a vibrant on-campus residence life community, and more than 300 days of sunshine a year and you have one of the most unique educational experiences out there.
“It was really important to me to choose a school that I knew I would feel valued and supported in. SCU’s community conveyed to me that my education, along with my peers, would be one where I knew I wouldn’t have to compete with anyone.”
“I chose SCU because of its global reputation and the numerous opportunities available to each student. The University is located in Silicon Valley, and research projects are widely available for undergraduate students looking to gain real-world experience. I found the small class sizes the best part about the University because I will be able to make deep and lasting relationships with both my professors and classmates.”
“From the moment I visited campus, I felt a deep connection with the school. I knew this institution could offer me the help and resources I needed to succeed as a Latina in tech. Santa Clara won my heart over with the perks of having smaller class sizes, an 11:1 student-faculty ratio, the location, and, most importantly, the beautiful campus.”
“I decided to transfer to Santa Clara University because every time I set foot on campus, I felt right at home. The hospitality I would receive from students, staff, and alumni made me feel that this was the right place for me to grow and receive the best education.”
