I'm in love with this campus. Great place to bring kids or teens to start looking at colleges. Has the most beautiful chapel I've ever seen. Small class sizes and campus for easier teacher talking time

Nice and small campus with the California Mission in the middle. It is also close to a lot of restaurants and other places to hang out. Santana Row in San Jose is not too far away either.

Went with my high school son for a visit and unlike many college visits, was not treated as a number. Considered "mid-size" but has a feel of a bigger University. Beautiful grounds throughout including the missionary in middle of campus. Had student guide us and very helpful. Thoroughly enjoyed it (now one my son's top 3 schools).

A degree from here means something. It's geared toward working people so classes are scheduled accordingly...very close to downtown San Jose.

Our daughter attended a 3 day volleyball camp. Us being interested parents went and observed during 3 of the training sessions. Very good overall instructional program in place. Living quarters for our daughter was a dorm room which was clean and adequate for the cause. Coaches and assistants were outstanding!!! Would recommend this camp to others that's for sure.

Beautiful and well kept grounds. Have been doing construction of new buildings and student housing for the last couple of years. Nice spanish style architecture. Mission Santa Clara is inside the school. I can't say its student population culturally diverse since the majority are wealthy white kids. I think this place is overrated. Also, they should consider expanding their degree... More
