From enemy to empathy

Bronco Battalion

Growing Home

For Jessica Franco ’19, the thought of Santa Clara University without the Forge Garden is an inconceivable one. Franco, one of four paid student-apprentices working at the Forge, got involved with the campus garden after attending one of its many events for students her freshman year. Since then, Franco says, the Forge has been a […]

Hidden Treasure

The general rule for researching artifacts in a special collection, Santa Clara University archivist Andrea Hoff says, is that the more interesting an item sounds, the less interesting it probably is. The opposite is true, too: The more mundane the item, the better the story behind it likely is. So when the Archives Processing & […]

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 […]
