Santa Clara University, huh? This is what SCU looks like, the one below sure looks a helluvalot like Stanford to me!
14. Santa Clara University
Santa Clara, California
Founded in 1851, long before the city of Santa Clara was the tech capital it is today, Santa Clara University is now 106 acres of peaceful palm trees and California Mission-style architecture. The Ricard Observatory is one of the favorite buildings on campus. Completed in 1928, the silver-domed building is still both functional and charming. The Student Activities Center was only completed in 2010, but has quickly become one of the more iconic buildings on campus. The center is beautiful to look at, and recently earned an LEED Gold certification for its myriad green features which include low-emissions finishes and brick-paved walkways that limit water runoff.
