Knowing When to Help

We understand the dilemma parents face in deciding when to step in and when to let their students handle challenges independently. At Santa Clara University, we're dedicated to empowering students early on, and helping them develop self-advocacy skills. They're supported every step of the way by a friendly team of staff and faculty across campus.

Our Orientation and Welcome Weekend events offer a grand introduction to the Santa Clara experience. But it doesn't stop there; it's a continuous journey. We understand that not every student instantly feels at home, and that's okay! If your student feels nervous, reassure them that finding a sense of belonging takes time. We are excited to have you all here and look forward to the unfolding journey at Santa Clara University.
