  •  Check In: Thoughts on their first quarter at SCU

    Friday, Dec. 19, 2014 2:37 PM

    With fall quarter complete, we wanted to check in with the three first-year business school students who received Santa Clara University’s Johnson Scholarship – Amy Lutfi, Dylan DeTray and Taylor Tagawa. 

     Amy Lutfi
    “I was pleasantly surprised how quickly I found a home within the SCU community during my first quarter! Fellow students, professors, and staff were so welcoming to me from the first day of classes.  My business professors have been especially helpful and are wholeheartedly invested in my success.  I have really benefited from their unique expertise and availability.  All of these factors have increased my passion about my studies, the Leavey School of Business, and the SCU community as a whole. I am excited about what the future holds and look forward to nurturing the relationships that I have developed with my peers and professors.”

     Dylan DeTray
    "As my first quarter here at SCU has come to a close, I can confidently describe my experience as engaging, challenging, and welcoming. College proved to be much more difficult than I imagined, but due to fantastic teachers and interesting subjects, I was so much more excited to learn. Aside from the academics, the student body at Santa Clara has been nothing but welcoming, especially in communities I have been lucky enough to find a home in, such as other Johnson Scholars as well as with Alpha Kappa Psi."

    “I love how accessible and knowledgeable the professors are here at the Leavey School of Business. It's great to learn from professors who have real-world experience and such extensive knowledge of today's business world.”

    The Johnson Scholarship awards full, renewable academic scholarships to up to 10 of SCU’s most academically accomplished, leadership-minded applicants.
