Raymond from San Jose, CA
Santa Clara's campus has the same feeling my high school did, one of community, love, passion, and drive. Not only are the students here hard working and actively involved, they love what they do. Being surrounded by people with such passion inspires me to do my best--Santa Clara breeds leaders.
