WHY NWABUZOH CHOSE SANTA CLARA: “I chose Santa Clara because the academic program really won me over. Meeting the academic advisors made me feel comfortable and confident that I would be in an environment that wants to help me succeed. The campus is gorgeous, and I am ecstatic to be at a school where I can continue to practice my faith. The volleyball team and coaching staff made me feel welcomed into their family and I can’t wait to be a part of it. Lastly, the proximity to home and playing in the West Coast Conference allows me the pleasure to see my family often, and to see some of my high school friends across the net.”
