Santa Clara students are encouraged to participate in extracurricular activities as part of their total development. The primary educational objective in supporting student activities and organizations is to foster a community that is enriched by men and women of diverse backgrounds, wherein freedom of inquiry and expression enjoys high priority.
The following sections describe various aspects of student life and services:
Campus Ministry is a place where people are committed to spiritual and personal growth of students, staff, faculty, and alumni. In support of the University’s mission to develop the whole person, Campus Ministry offers a variety of programs and pastoral presence to support that development, particularly the spiritual and personal aspects. Campus Ministry offers a welcoming environment where faith may be explored, discovered, and developed. More than 500 students attend weekly worship, and even more students are involved in campus ministry programs. In addition to seven campus ministers, there are also resident ministers living in residence halls on campus. Campus Ministry seeks to facilitate growth in individuals and the community by its presence, programs, and services. To attain this vision, Campus Ministry offers the University community a variety of programs: liturgies and other sacramental celebrations, retreats, counseling and spiritual direction, educational forums, interfaith sharing, and Bible studies. The Campus Ministry staff reflects the reality of the Church today: a team of women and men—lay, religious, and priests—who collaborate with student interns and all segments of the community in the planning and execution of our programs.
In all of this, Campus Ministry is guided by the words of the prophet Micah: “This is what the Lord asks of you, only this: to act justly, to love tenderly, and to walk humbly with your God.”
KSCU: KSCU is a student-run, non-commercial radio station at 103.3 FM. The program format features primarily independent music, including indie rock, punk, ska, jazz, blues, and reggae. Students may get involved with the radio station as a staff member or as a volunteer disc jockey, office assistant, fundraiser, or sound technical staff. The staff of KSCU operates all aspects of an FM radio station in accordance with SCU’s mission and goals, and Federal Communications Commission regulations.
The Redwood: SCU’s yearbook strives to maintain proper journalistic guidelines while producing an accurate and quality book for the University community. Entirely student run, with the aid of a faculty advisor, The Redwood offers paid and volunteer positions in writing, design, and photography. Students at-large are encouraged to participate by contributing to the yearbook.
Santa Clara Review: A student-edited literary magazine that publishes poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and art, the Santa Clara Review is published biannually, drawing on submissions from SCU students, faculty, staff, and writers outside of SCU. The Santa Clara Review is committed to the development of student literary talent, in both editorial knowledge and creative writing skills. Students may get involved with the magazine in several staff positions and with opportunities to volunteer in the areas of poetry, fiction, nonfiction, art, and management.
The Santa Clara: The Santa Clara is the University’s undergraduate weekly newspaper, serving as an informative and entertaining student-run campus publication. Students may get involved in a staff position or as a volunteer writer, photographer, or member of the business staff.
