Santa Clara University

Study Abroad

Mentor Program


The Mentor Program connects current Santa Clara University students with incoming International Exchange Students. Your mentor will most likely have studied abroad himself/herself and will be a part of the SCU International Ambassadors group. Your mentor will give you practical advice as well as provide connections to social events and outings, including those offered by the International Club. Your mentor will be available to pick you up from the airport and take you shopping for the necessities to help you settle into your new home.


Preferred Airport:
The Mineta San Jose International Airport (SJC) is located only about a 5-minute drive from the Santa Clara University campus. We prefer that participants in the Exchange Student Program who wish to be picked up by a mentor make every effort to arrive at this airport. We cannot promise a pick up if you arrive at San Francisco International Airport, in which case taking public transportation will be necessary.
