Why Santa Clara? Santa Clara was my first choice for several reasons. The most important of those reasons was to receive a great education from a Catholic institution. Another extremely important factor in my decision was the great water polo program at Santa Clara. Lastly was the beautiful campus and weather of Santa Clara. This rare combination of interests made Santa Clara the obvious choice for me.
