As part of the Life Invented podcast and video series for the Undergraduate Admission Office, Steve Nash ’96, reflects upon his time at SCU. As an NCAA Division 1 school, Santa Clara University gave Nash the opportunity to leave his home in Canada and launch his collegiate basketball career – and to introduce him to one of his favorite places in the world, the Bay Area. Today, he hopes to one day share his college experience with his children because, in his words, “only people who have been to Santa Clara can really understand what it means to go to Santa Clara.”
“As part of the LEAD program, students connect with a group of scholars who truly understand the unique challenges faced by those who are the first members of their families to attend college. “
