A 2022 graduate of Zurich International School in Switzerland, Sarah will attend Santa Clara University. Multiple factors influenced Olivia's decision to enroll, including the SCU community and academic choices that are offered.

"I enjoy the smaller university atmosphere and the ability to feel part of a community at the university. I also have heard positive things about the business school at SCU and although am majoring in a different subject, would like to see the possibilities of transferring over to a business degree. I've also heard several positive experiences other students, parents and university counselors have shared at SCU," she shared.

At Santa Clara University, Sarah will pursue a major in Communications. She shared that her future career plans are "to find a career in either journalism or working in a social media, marketing position."

Start as early as you can with the process, and start writing application essays as soon as you can.
