Greetings and salutations! Welcome to Santa Clara University, your home for the next four years. My name is Riley McShane and I’m an English major from Longview, Washington. You have made the choice to become a Bronco and I can tell you that it was a truly great decision. I have never for a moment regretted the choice to come to SCU. Here on campus, I’m involved with Associated Student Government, Student Ambassadors, Community Council, and intramural sports. If getting involved is your thing, I am free for any questions at any time. I can’t wait for Orientation, and I hope you are excited to begin your SCU experience!

Hey Broncos! My name is Kassamira and I am from Portland, Oregon! I am officially Undeclared in the School of Arts and Sciences. I love to try new things and meet new people. I'm involved in so many things on campus. I'm a student ambassador for the Shadow SCU program, I'm a student assistant for the Office of Multicultural Learning, I'm on spirit squad for the boys basketball team, I'm a LEAD scholar, I'm the freshman representative for Igwebuike (the Black Student Union), A mentee in the LOOP program (upperclassmen mentor program), the swim club, the happy feet club (dancing club), and I play intramural sports (D1 Volleyball Champ!). I'd be happy to talk to you about any of these things and more! I'm super excited for you all to Join the Stampede and have as much fun as I had my freshman year as a Santa Clara Bronco! See you this summer!
