Santa Clara University

Admitted Undergraduate Students

Shadow SCU

Admitted students are invited to experience Santa Clara University through the ShadowSCU program: a program for admitted students, managed by current SCU students in the Office of Undergraduate Admission.

Like a real SCU student, you will make your own decisions about how to spend your time here. Your student guide will introduce you to campus life, take you to a class, and provide a room for you to stay in if an overnight is requested and capacity allows. Our office will provide you with a few pointers and a list of suggested activities. The rest is up to you. Try to decide on your own priorities in advance: do you want to see the lab facilities in a certain field, get a sense of the overall classroom culture, or find out what the athletic facilities are like?

However you choose to spend your time, we recommend talking to as many people as possible. Don't be shy! As you'll quickly discover, Santa Clara is full of friendly people who are delighted to share their experience with you.

ShadowSCU runs during the winter quarter from Monday, January 27th - Friday, March 7 and spring quarter from Thursday, April 3 - Wednesday, April 30.
