A Salute to Santa Clara's Vibrant Community

- Unity Night -


Welcome to Unity Night!

SCU Unity Night is a program designed for our multicultural and first-generation admitted students. The event is intended to both celebrate your admission and your identity, while giving you space to explore how your various multicultural and social identities intersect and thrive on our campus! If people are the sum of their experiences, then this school is a sum of our people. At Santa Clara University, we believe and strive to make sure our differences don’t divide us, but rather unite us all under our mission for a more inclusive and sustainable world. Let SCU begin the process of opening doors to your success and envisioning your life in higher education. See you there!
