Why I Chose Santa Clara: I found the relaxed and open environment at Santa Clara to be more conducive to achievement, both academically and athletically, than alternative options. The college itself, with its ideal location in the Silicon Valley, is perfect for any student interested in applying their learned skills in a business environment. The athletic programs at Santa Clara have found the perfect balance between both academic and athletic achievement.
