Life Invented



Steve Nash ‘96

Reflecting on the past and looking towards the future
As an NCAA Division 1 school, Santa Clara University gave Steve Nash the opportunity to leave his home in Canada, launch his collegiate basketball career, and discover one of his favorite places in the world, the Bay Area. Today, he hopes to one day share his college experience with his children because, in his words, “only people who have been to Santa Clara can really understand what it means to go to Santa Clara.” We couldn’t agree more.
