Why Santa Clara? I choose Santa Clara because of its ability to create awe and wonder not only for all those who go to school here, but also to visitors.  The first time I arrived at the school I knew this is where I belonged.  It has great staff, great students, and exceptional sports teams.  I very much look forward to my upcoming years at Santa Clara and all that they bring.
