As a Classics major concentrating in Latin, I (quite obviously) have to take Latin classes throughout the year. Today in Intermediate Latin, a course in which we’re translating Caesar and Vergil, we took a field trip to Green’s Special Collections—literally, a collection of special stuff. There’s the original script of Star Wars, the Gutenberg Bible Leaf, a bunch of rare maps, and pretty much anything you could think of…
CS 106A: Programming Methodology is one of the most—if not the most—popular classes at Stanford. It’s the first course in computer science that many students take, myself this spring being one of them.
When I went to my own Admit Weekend years ago, I had already committed to Stanford. Still, I was excited to visit the place I’d spend the next four years and to meet my potential new peers. I knew my mom was also eager to get onto Stanford’s campus and check out her kid’s new home away from home.

After exams, you have only one academic thing to worry about: your grades. Usually you know what your grade is, even though it depends on the 3-hour test or 10+page you wrote in the last week of school.
