An aspirational message for prospective students

Young people graduate from college expecting to change the world. Santa Clara University has devoted 150 years to empowering its students to do just that: to effect change and to build a more humane, just, and sustainable world from the most innovative place on earth: Silicon Valley. They looked to Michael Patrick Partners to write and design key recruiting materials that would communicate this to prospective students.

Getting to the heart of the story

Michael Patrick Partners developed content and design to tell a compelling story to prospective students and their parents about SCU undergraduate life inside and outside the classroom.
