Student Ratings

Student at This School - Grad Year 2013

College Life Rating

Clubs are a great way to get involved and meet new people. There are so many activities to go to that are put on by the school.

Alumnus - Grad Year 2005

College Life Rating

SCU did not have any school-affiliated non-academic related Greek system which I was a little disappointed to learn about. SCU is only known for their basketball and soccer teams and do not have any other sports teams such as football. If a student is looking for a school with a lot of social events, I don't think SCU would be on the top of the list.
