Why Santa Clara? "I chose Santa Clara because it is the perfect combination and balance of academics and athletics. I also enjoy the small setting, which gives it a more personal feeling in and outside of class. Anytime I visited Santa Clara, the people have been very friendly and welcoming, making Santa Clara seem like the right fit. It's also very close to home, making it easy for my family to come visit, and It has always been the school that felt most comfortable to me."
