SCU is a gorgeous and small private school in Nor Cal. The academics are rigorous and include classes that challege ethics, principles and morals as well as your mind. Since teacher student ratios are always below 1:30 instead of 1:200 like other places, you feel like you can ask questions, go to office hours for help and make friends. There are some teachers who can't teach but also some brilliant professors with relaxed demeanors. The business school is awesome and nationally ranked and probably the best of all the colleges at this university.

The people here are a mixed bag though. Some are strange liberals, some jock, some bimbos, some snobs but also a lot of really laid back cool people. Also the night life isn't great in the immediate vicinity of the university. Santa Clara has nothing to do but downtown SJ which is 2 mins away is cool. There are bars, restaurants and clubs. SF is your best bet, as the nightlife there is awesome. And that is about 40 mins away.
