WHY I CHOSE SANTA CLARA: I was drawn to Santa Clara University due to it’s outstanding academic reputation.  I felt at home while on campus and was sad to leave as my official visit came to an end. The students that I met  while on my visit were friendly, outgoing and ambitious. I knew right away where I wanted to spend the next four years of my life.
