From enemy to empathy

A Campus Transformed

Here are some of the literal doors that we’ve opened on campus in recent years—and three we’ll be opening in months to come. They’re all part of the Campaign for Santa Clara. SOBRATO CAMPUS FOR DISCOVERY AND INNOVATION A landmark complex to foster collaboration in the sciences, mathematics, technology, and engineering. Construction underway. STEPHEN C. AND […]

Germ Fighter

The longer it takes to trace the source of illnesses, the greater the number of people at risk of becoming sick. So David Hess, an associate professor and director of SCU’s biotechnology program, is reducing to 48 hours the time it takes to detect bacteria such as E. coli. Using genome sequencing work done by Mark Pandori, director […]

Bannan Rebrand

Cloie von Massenhausen ’19 says her friends like to tease that at Santa Clara, it would be far too easy for her to go on a date with a cousin without knowing it. They may be joking, but it’s not the craziest assessment given von Massenhausen’s lineage. You see, she is a sapling in the […]

Formative Experience

“It really clicked that we are part of something bigger—in addition to our chosen professions—we were put here to make the world better,” Jim Slattery says of his experience on a Jesuit retreat. As the parents of Bronco John Michael Slattery ’21, Georgia-based Jim and Betsy Slattery support the next generation—by giving to the Ignatian […]

Invested Coaching

Men’s basketball player Josip Vrankic ’21 turned down Tulane and Princeton to play at Santa Clara. “For me, it was how invested the coaches were,” says Vrankic, who came to SCU having earned props as one of the best prep players in Canada. “Everything else is just a big bonus, like being in Silicon Valley, […]

Goal: Unity

“We are so united as one,” says Kelcie Hedge ’19 of the experiences she has had with Santa Clara Women’s Soccer. “We want to do the best for each other. I’m excited to see what we can do.” And what can they do? Maintain excellence on and off the field. Under the guidance of Coach […]

The Right Tools

“You don’t know what someone can do until they have the resources they need,” says Dominic Magdaluyo ’19. “Here, I have those resources.” Magdaluyo, 33, attended high school in San Francisco. But when it came time for college, “I was the student who slipped through the cracks.” His parents hadn’t gone to college—so when he […]

Clear the Record

Can technology make laws more effective? In some cases, absolutely. Professor of Law Colleen Chien, an expert on intellectual property and innovation, discovered better ways to serve innovators by researching who earns patents. Recently she turned her empirical eye and the SCU High Tech Law Institute’s resources to the criminal justice system, examining how Second […]

We Have Contact

What if a contact lens could do more than improve your vision? What if it could save your sight, or tell you if medication and lifestyle changes are reducing the impacts of glaucoma? Here at Santa Clara, Emre Araci, an assistant professor of bioengineering, has been leading a team to create a contact lens that […]

Real Problems

Would it be ethical to pay citizens to vote, or to make voting mandatory? Are plans for 3-D printed guns protected by free speech? These are real-life ethics questions. And Santa Clara’s Ethics Bowl team is thoughtful—and quick—in answering them. That focus earned them recognition as the top Ethics Bowl team in the country in […]

Hot Tuna is back with their first studio recording in 20 years. Jorma Kaukonen ’64 has tunes and hard-earned wisdom to share, writes Mark Purdy.

On New Year’s Day 1937, a team from a little Jesuit school in the Santa Clara Valley stunned the sports world with an upset that won them the Sugar Bowl. And put their home on the map.

When Joseph Peterson ’72 signed up for ROTC as an undergrad, he planned to complete his military service and then move on. Nearly four decades later, he finally has: with three stars on his shoulder and having served as deputy commander of U.S. Forces Command.

From enemy to empathy
From enemy to empathy

Political scientist William Stover teaches students to understand volatile conflicts through firsthand experience. Thanks to virtual simulations, there aren’t casualties. But there is a new way of seeing.

What does it mean for a Jesuit university to be home to the Reserve Officers’ Training Corps? Seventy-five years after ROTC came to Santa Clara—and 150 years after officers were first trained on campus—a few answers are clear.

The Keeper

Third-generation Bronco Bianca Henninger ’12 earned accolades this fall from ESPN.com as being the best goalie in the country. And she made All-American.
