Hometown: Folsom, CA
Major: Bioengineering
Minor: Electrical Engineering

My involvement with clubs at Santa Clara during my first year set up an excellent foundation for my overall development and prepared me to earn some great on-campus jobs and external internships; this helped shape some of the best experiences of my life, while ultimately leading to a full-time job offer.

Housing

All students begin the first two years of their Santa Clara experience as members of an Residential Learning Communities (RLC). Each community has a theme, which is broad and not linked to any particular major. RLCs offer a wealth of resources to support your studies and your personal life, such as a leadership team that includes faculty, staff, and fellow students. Wherever you end up, you will find lots of new friends and a supportive community.
