Good bye my friend

Words can't adequately express my gratitude for all that Paul Locatelli did to make Santa Clara a preeminent university. While the buildings, the caliber of faculty and the excellent education afforded to its graduates are all outstanding achievements, his greatest accomplishment was in teaching students to care for one another as human beings and make a difference in the world. His message of love and compassion are a true testament to the man. He was a great mentor, role model and friend. I will miss his smile, his spirit and his intolerance of mediocrity. He was and always will be Santa Clara.
