Family, religion, tennis, and a career in sports medicine are four topics where graduating senior Catherine Isip speaks confidently. These four factors proved to play a major role in Isip's college decision process:

She knew she was looking for a school that provided Sunday church services. "I wanted a college where I could continue my religious ways."
She knew that signing early for a top tennis school had been a goal of hers throughout her junior career. "I'm so happy I was offered the opportunity to make an early decision and receive a full scholarship to a great school."

"It came down to Pepperdine University and the University of California at Irvine," said Isip.
