Santa Clara University is in the heart of Silicon Valley, the technological capital of the modern world. Students here have access to unlimited educational, cultural, recreational, and career opportunities.
"I chose Santa Clara over Duke and U. Penn—because of the small size and collaborative nature of the classes and the caliber of the faculty, as well as the location and integration with the Silicon Valley business community."
