Spring 2003 cover

'School Work' feature may inspire alumni to help

I just received Santa Clara Magazine. What a job you did covering our story! Thank you so much for giving us such great coverage ("School Work," Spring 2003). I am hoping that other Santa Clara alumni business leaders will be inspired to want to help out as well.

Man who thought highly of Clinton was dreaming

I was amused by Kelly Bulkeley's article on dreams ("Dreams Reflect Our Waking World") in the Spring 2003 issue of Santa Clara Magazine. I can only say that the man who dreamed that President Clinton displayed leadership qualities and selflessness by confronting an approaching bear and saving the group was truly dreaming.

References to SCU in movie were a real kick

I recently saw the movie "Bend It Like Beckham," which was a huge success in the U.K., Australia, and India, among other countries. In the movie, one of the main characters makes reference to Santa Clara University's women's soccer team and the University as a whole. In addition, it was great seeing the University colors when she mails her parents SCU merchandise.

This is great for Santa Clara. It allows our University to be seen and noted not only as a fine academic institution in the U.S. but also abroad.
