About Santa Fe

SFCC is located in one of the most scenically beautiful and historically rich areas in America. Founded in the early 1600s by the Spanish, Santa Fe is the oldest continually used state capital in the United States. Surrounded by mountains and situated in the high desert, Santa Fe experiences all four seasons in what many believe is an ideal climate. It is the state's third largest city, with of population of more than 68,000 that swells considerably during peak tourist times.

 

Throughout its long history, Santa Fe has been recognized for its three distinct cultures: Native American, Hispanic and Anglo. The rich multicultural traditions of each are reflected in the city's art, architecture, festivals, languages and foods. The city's broad economic base is characterized by substantial government, scientific trade, service, arts and tourism activities.
