Why I Chose Santa Clara: I chose Santa Clara because of my experience with a Jesuit education. As my high school English teacher once told me, no one argues like a Jesuit, and after visiting Santa Clara, I just couldn’t say no. Everyone I met there made it very obvious that Santa Clara was the place to be. Between the incredible faculty, the diverse and inviting student body, and the 300 days of sunshine every year, I actually can’t tell you what the tipping point was in my decision-making.
