Family Affair

A Santa Clara family celebrates dedication in sports and life.

Hanging in the gym where Ali Rambis ’14 served, bumped, and spiked to victory, the place that was home to 6 a.m. workouts, is Bronco jersey No. 34.

Her dad’s jersey.

While Kurt Rambis ’80 suited up for Bronco basketball, Ali found a home on the volleyball court. And that jersey marked a key sports lesson that’s good for the rest of life.

“It really did remind me every single day how hard you have to work, and you can’t take days off, you can’t slack off, because that’s what it takes to achieve success,” says Ali, who now practices law in Los Angeles. “Going in early, getting the extra time, getting the extra reps, going above and beyond—that’s really what I think makes the difference.”

Music Above All

Erin Pearson ’05 was recruited to play soccer for Santa Clara University. But her passion for music was pulling her in a different direction.

A Number’s Worth

Chuck Cantoni ’57 may be the oldest person to swim from Alcatraz to San Francisco—all to raise money for research into a potentially deadly brain condition.

Collaboration is Key

Jacqueline Whitham ’21 chose to support cross-disciplinary collaboration and research at SCU through $3.8 million from her family’s foundation.
