Santa Clara University


 The Alpha RLC, Santa Clara’s longest-running Residential Learning Community, investigates the modern world by pursuing western culture through the lenses of the arts (visual and practicing), literature, philosophy, history and writing. We are committed to understanding the benefits and challenges of Western Culture, both how we exercise our freedom and how we live in community with one another. The community is made up of a diverse group of students, faculty and staff who strive to create a safe and welcoming environment for all of its members. Through a rich variety of social, academic, cultural, wellness, and spiritual programs, Alpha seeks both to develop community and to meet the needs of each individual.
