WHY O’HAGAN CHOSE SANTA CLARA: “I chose Santa Clara because I want to be surrounded by individuals who are on a mission to better themselves, first and foremost, as men and women for others. I liked how Santa Clara wants to challenge me as much I want to challenge myself. I’m studying in the Civil Engineering department, but I’m also looking forward to taking classes in philosophy and psychology, among others that I’m sure I don’t know yet.

The challenge to better the whole individual is remarkably present in the cross country program. The passion with which the coaches and captains lead the team is inspiring and I look forward to that example every morning when it’s early and I want nothing more than to sleep. The team gives me something to look forward to that is greater than myself, and I am thrilled to be a part of the success that I see the team having this year and in the coming years.”
