The Spirit of Christmas

On behalf of the campus community, SCU President Michael E. Engh, S.J., extends wishes for a very merry Christmas, happy holidays, and a peaceful and prosperous new year.

At Santa Clara University the holiday season is not ushered in by falling snow, winter coats, or sleigh rides.

While we are fortunate to live in a place that is beautiful regardless of the season, the true beauty of Santa Clara extends far beyond the physical.

Fostering an environment that encourages and celebrates service, inclusion, compassion, respect, and most importantly love, is what keeps the spirit of Christmas alive throughout the year.

Santa Clara University is marked by the warmth of holiday traditions that encapsulate the Jesuit values we live and breathe—especially during the season of Advent.

All of us at Santa Clara University want to wish you and your loved ones a very merry Christmas, happy holidays, and a peaceful and prosperous new year.
