Although we are a little late hopping onto the blogging train for this past month, we are excited to be able to officially congratulate all of the new graduates in the area—especially those recently graduating from Santa Clara University! On June 13, 2015, 1300 students (along with their family and friends) gathered for the University’s 164th undergraduate commencement at the Buck Shaw Stadium. They were addressed by the nationally known Jesuit author and commentator Rev. James Martin, S.J. His commencement address can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f1CxPSN_lHQ

Here at Madison Street Inn, we are so fortunate to be able to host some of the wonderful parents and families of SCU students. Mary and Elizabeth are a prime example of the “home away from home” atmosphere that so many find here at the Inn and the reason why we love hosting SCU families. Mary and Elizabeth stayed at the Inn in July 2009 while Elizabeth was attending her summer orientation before her freshman year. Throughout Elizabeth’s 4 years at SCU, her mother Mary would always stay at Madison Street Inn and we are so happy that she did! Even after Elizabeth graduated from SCU with her Bachelor’s in 2013, we were able to have a lovely dinner celebration for her friends and family here at the Inn. Mary says,

“Madison Inn was our home away from home from Freshman Orientation to a dinner celebration after Santa Clara’s graduation.    Heartfelt thanks to Theresa and Ralph for welcoming us like family.”

Elizabeth recently graduated from Stanford University with her Master’s of Arts in Education and we were delighted to have been a part of the after- celebration. Congratulations to Elizabeth on behalf of Madison Street Inn! And Mary, you know you always have a home here when you are in the area :)

In addition to the Santa Clara graduation this past June, we were also happy to host a group of some of the world’s best swimmers, hailing from Canton, Ohio (CCS). Coach Sam and three of the top swimmers from his club came out to Santa Clara to compete in the 2015 USA Swimming Arena Pro Swim Series at the George F. Haines International Swim Center, alongside many past Olympic medalists including Michael Phelps. Congratulations to Laura for finishing 4th in the 50 – Breast Stroke! It was a pleasure to have you all stay with us and we wish you the best of luck in your upcoming meets as you prepare for the 2016 Olympics! www.ccsswimteam.com
