Why Santa Clara? I chose Santa Clara because this is where I felt most comfortable after visiting many colleges. I wanted to stay in California and play Division I volleyball. The coaches and players were so welcoming, competitive and fun to be around. The campus is beautiful and there's so much to do in the Bay Area. Also, the fact the school is Catholic was a huge factor because I have gone to a Catholic school since kindergarten.
