Pursuing Passions

Pursuing Passions

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.

A World Of Opportunity

A World Of Opportunity

I don’t know about you, but 8,180 acres sounds pretty big to me. And in fact, although I’m no longer new to our expansive campus, I still discover great new places to study and buildings I’ve never heard of surprisingly often…thank goodness for our online campus map! But if you agree that 8,180 is rather large, then how about 36,794,240,000?

As a high-schooler, the concept of visiting my professors seemed foreign to me; aren’t you supposed to spend discretionary time with friends? When I got to college, and specifically to Stanford, I suddenly understood why professor accessibility was so highly praised – because my professors are my friends.

Parents Enjoy a Weekend on the Farm

Parents Enjoy a Weekend on the Farm

This winter quarter is the last one that I will spend on campus as an undergraduate, and it has already felt quite different than any other one that I have had on campus largely for that reason. One thing that always struck me about being here was the distance it created from my parents and it allowed me to create my own “life” separate from them. While this has been incredibly useful in making me mature during my time at Stanford, there’s still nothing like being able to feel like a kid again when I’m with my parents!
