<p>The question is: Why is Santa Clara University one of your top choices?</p>

<p>My Response:
I have been volunteering at Jack’s Helping Hand, a non-profit organization, since I was a freshman in high school. I have had the opportunity to be involved in many of the office functions, such as bookkeeping, filing, and communicating with past and future clients and donors, that are necessary to keep a nonprofit organization in business.
Santa Clara is one of my top choices because I would like to attend the Leavey School of Business. I am still unsure as to what field of business I would like to study. Santa Clara offers the perfect alternative of allowing freshman take common core of liberal arts and introductory business classes. Also, the special programs and certificates, like leavey scholars, ace program, and dean’s leadership program, will give me the opportunity to challenge myself. At Santa Clara, I will question and learn to become a dedicated/ strong leader that can make a difference in my community</p>
