WHY LAUGERO CHOSE SANTA CLARA: “As a student-athlete I chose Santa Clara University because of its reputation for academic and athletic excellence. Santa Clara focuses on developing their students mentally, physically, and spiritually. They emphasize every aspect of the person. SCU also stressed the importance of educating students of conscience and compassion. I feel that showing compassion and concern toward humanity is vital to create peace on a global scale. The smallest acts of kindness go a long way. Santa Clara also expresses the importance of community service. Helping others and giving back strengthens communities and also provides opportunities for many.”
