    Photos from four of the ten most visited articles on SantaClaraMagazine.com

     

    As we file 2010 under archives, we took a few minutes to look at the most popular stories on the SCM website from the past year. Here, dear readers, are the stories you turned to most online. Pat yourselves on the back for discerning taste, breadth of interest, and a desire for stories with pop and bang (including a grand slam during a first at-bat in the majors), ebb and flow, laughter and tears, infused with the smell of baking focaccia and the ache for a home long lost -- with journeys that take you from the dark corners of the Internet to the top of Mt. Everest, from Bhangra dancing in the White House to paddling in the Sea of Cortez -- and coming home to the Mission Gardens for a farewell to Chancellor Paul Locatelli, S.J. '60.


    Don't see your favorite story of the year listed here? Let us know the what and the why of what surprised and delighted in the year just past. And watch for an upcoming post on the stories from our previous years' archives (all the way back to 2003, since that's what's online) that you turned to in 2010.


    Let the countdown begin...

    By Sam Scott '96
