Broyles, Sara

Sara Broyles '14 writes, "I can't believe I just graduated! I'm so thankful for my amazing experience at SCU. Now it's time to enter the 'real world.' I move into my new apartment at the end of June and I start my full-time job in July—I'll be working at a PR agency in San Francisco. I couldn't be more grateful for all that Santa Clara has done for me. I feel confident in myself knowing that I have a solid foundation that will prepare me for the workforce and the rest of my life! Even as an official alumna, I know it's always a great day to be a Bronco."
