Greatest Hits of 2011
The top Santa Clara Magazine stories from last year, as well as from the vaults, keep online readers coming back.
One of the advantages of the online magazine is that readers are able to interact with our stories. And in 2011, interact they did. Whether it was to add a memory of life in Graham Hall, provide a thoughtful comment on a feature article, share a story on Facebook, or view photo galleries of the Peace Corps volunteers, readers came to santaclaramagazine.com more often and in higher numbers than ever before. So what were the favorites? Drum roll, please ...
Our online readers also came in search of articles from previous years. So much so that we are working to make it even easier to find favorite stories and related content. What were the most sought after blasts from the past? Take a look—maybe you'll discover a gem you've missed.
