WHY BREWER CHOSE SANTA CLARA: "Santa Clara stood out to me because of all the schools that I visited, I felt the most at home here. The community at Santa Clara is the most welcoming that I have encountered, and I am very excited to be a part of it. I grew up an hour away, so I fell in love with the California weather and knew I didn’t want to leave that. Plus the rowing guys are pretty chill so what more can one ask for?"
