Why Santa Clara? I chose Santa Clara because of my interest in the volleyball program. From visiting and researching the school, I learned about the great academics that Santa Clara has to offer. The campus was very inviting, comfortable and a place I could picture myself spending the next four years. I felt very welcomed on my visit by the coaching staff and players. Overall, Santa Clara felt like a perfect fit for me.
