The palm tree dotted campus is gorgeous, with stunning gardens, walkways, Mission style buildings, and lots of greenery. At the heart of Santa Clara University is the historic Mission Santa Clara de Asis. Founded in 1777, it is the eighth oldest of the original 21 California missions. The current Mission Church was dedicated May 13, 1928. From then until now it has served as the University chapel, and is used by the University community for Masses, baptisms, weddings and funerals. The Mission Church is open to the public and welcomes visitors. The de Saisset Museum at Santa Clara University is the South Bay Area's free Museum of art and history. The 19,210 square foot facility was founded adjacent to the Mission Santa Clara de Asis on the Santa Clara University campus in 1955 and is currently one of only two museums in the South Bay accredited by the American Association of Museums.
