Washington Post says Santa Clara deserves consideration

SCU was listed among the “100 Colleges Worth Considering” with reporters stating that the school deserves a bigger reputation.

The Washington Post in April listed Santa Clara University among the “100 Colleges Worth Considering.”

Education reporter Jay Mathews asked readers to help him compile a list of colleges and universities “that deserve bigger reputations” and “more attention than they are getting.”

He calls them “the hidden gems, the lesser known jewels, the wallflower colleges that students fall in love with only after they get to know them.”

SCU was No. 62 on the list, which Mathews compiled with the help of high school guidance counselors.
