W.E. Moerner, the Harry S. Mosher Professor of Chemistry, was awarded the 2014 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his role in developing microscopy techniques to view molecular processes in real time.
I’ve recently been impressed by the way that some of my friends have been not only exploring new things, but also pursuing their passions by creating art, designing and engineering products, and writing code. I want to jump off of my previous post to talk some great ways that you can go beyond the bounds of the classroom and dive into a topic or project that you care about in whatever field you’re interested in.
Maybe you’re a student who just accepted your offer of admission (if so, then congratulations and I look forward to seeing you on campus next year!), or you’re a freshman who still isn’t quite sure who that guy on the second floor is who’s so good at physics. Either way, here is a short breakdown of some of the different staff positions in the freshman dorms at Stanford.
Stanford is a city: my address is a P.O. Box on Lasuen Mall (our post office) in Stanford, CA. And the campus is huge; 8,180 acres does not exactly engender cabin fever easily. Nonetheless, escaping the Stanford “bubble” is well worth the effort – we are located pretty close to lots of amazingly beautiful places for outdoor activities! If you like hiking, walking, sightseeing, or exploring of really any sort, you’re in luck.
