WHY GREEN CHOSE SANTA CLARA: “I was always attracted to Santa Clara’s location in the Silicon Valley as well as the challenging academics, service opportunities and travel abroad options. When I visited campus, the friendly students and fun, supportive atmosphere of the school impressed me. Coming to Santa Clara, I was lucky enough to be given the opportunity to walk onto the cross country and track team as well, which was an extra bonus. Overall, Santa Clara just seemed like a place I could call home.”
