“STUNNING grounds and mission!”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

What a BEAUTIFUL campus! The grounds are GORGEOUS, and very well-manicured and maintained! The mission is beautiful. The University has grown quite a bit since I last visited - and it is FABULOUS! They did an incredible job of expanding whilst maintaining the historical beauty of the campus. WOW!

“Beautiful Mission”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

I now have a quest . . . to visit all the missions in California. The Santa Clara Mission stands surrounded by beautiful flower gardens and pathways. Everywhere you walk, there is a sense of peace, history and comfort. What a great idea to have it on a lovely campus with such lovely young people around.

“A Fun start to a college tour!”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

A lovely campus with friendly students; Mission in the center of campus. We did a self directed tour after getting a map from the admissions office. Very easy to walk everywhere. All the students were most happy to answer any questions we had and were very happy with their college choice!

“Great campus, perfect California ”
Reviewed 10 January 2014 via mobile

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”
Reviewed 22 October 2013

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.
