Why UC Santa Cruz:

“Luckily I was able to end up at one of the most beautiful campuses in the world. I am currently a second year math and Econ major and loving it. Last season was an incredible experience all around. Competition was intense and training was fun, but most importantly we made our own little lady slug family. And I'm stoked to watch it grow this year!!”
