    Comida and Conversation, or Food and Conversation, is the newest installment in the long list of Santa Clara Arrupe placements. One native English speaker partners with a native Spanish speaker from the Alma Community in San Jose. After a family-style dinner, peppered with vegetables from area Bronco Urban Gardens, partners speak in Spanish for thirty minutes and in English for thirty minutes.

  •  Stephanie Hughes and the Joy of Garbage

    Monday, Feb. 7, 2011
    Few classes offered at Santa Clara University require sorting through trash on a Friday afternoon. However, twice this quarter, an army of students in hazmat suits marched to the Facilities yard to sort through trash from the Leavey, Loyola, and O'Connor buildings to collect data on SCU's current waste habits. These hands-on experiences are part of Stephanie Hughes' ENVS 10: The Joy of Garbage class, in which students learn what exactly happens to all our things.
