A year from now, Santa Clara University will make a new first impression with a building that is a one-stop shop for all student services—and is sure to have visitors “immediately immersed in what Santa Clara is all about,” in the words of Joe Sugg, assistant vice president for University Operations.

The Patricia A. and Stephen C. Schott Admission and Enrollment Services Building will be the first building you see by entering campus through the main entrance. It will house five departments—admissions, enrollment, financial aid, the registrar, and bursar—for the convenience of parents, prospective students, and current students. Ground was broken in April.

The new building has goals of gold LEED certification and energy efficiency 40 to 50 percent better than California’s exacting building codes.


Graham Hall is gone. Long live Graham Hall.

For nearly 50 years, the Graham complex served as a home for Santa Clara undergrads. This summer the complex came down—to make way for a new neighborhood of Graham Hall residences.

Housing Facilities Director Mako Ushihara provides specs: 125,000 square feet; 350 beds; and all rooms will be “mini-doubles”—two double-occupancy rooms sharing a bathroom. On the sustainability front, the new residence will apply for silver LEED certification and will also reuse tiles from the old Graham.

Former members of the “Grahamily” looking for an immediate nostalgia fix should read “Remembrance of things Graham” for alumni memories of pranks, parties, and the famous Graham pool.  mag-bug
