Why Santa Clara? Santa Clara University is such and amazing school and offers me everything I am looking for: at spectacular education, Division I athletics and a great location filled with opportunities. Aside from these excellent aspects, I think the people at Santa Clara are the best part about it. Everyone is so welcoming and friendly, and the campus is gorgeous. It is an honor to be a Bronco.
