Everyone talks about the immense amount of knowledge you learn in your first year in college. Here are some of the things of the actual things I’ve learned in and outside of the classroom during my first two quarters at Stanford.
I don’t know if I believe this yet, but spring quarter at Stanford is supposedly “camp Stanford.” Only two weeks have past thus far, but it looks like it’ll be a pretty sweet quarter. My schedule is pretty light in comparison to last quarter’s (I took 19 units in the winter and I do not recommend this unless you absolutely need to take all those classes).
Stanford has a class for just about everything, but there are also opportunities to design your own course. I’m starting my second independent study this spring!
There’s no well-chartered “next step” after earning my undergraduate degree from Stanford. But in fact any next step I take will lead to amazingness, as I’ll take my Stanford intellectual curiosity and passion for excellence with me to my new endeavors.
There’s a lot of construction going on around campus right now, and while it’s of course inconvenient in some ways, a lot of cool things are being built.
It’s impossible to fit in all the classes that interest me, with 13,209 options from which to choose. Regardless, I want to share with you a couple of neat classes that I’ve been able to squeak into my schedule and I’ve been so glad I did!
