WHY I CHOSE SANTA CLARA: When I first visited SCU I fell in love. The campus was incredibly beautiful and everyone was so nice. The girls on the team were very welcoming and hearing them talk about their experiences made me even more excited to be there. It was also important for me to find a school with a good academic program along with a successful athletic program. SCU has both and I feel extremely lucky that it has everything I want out of a college and more.
