While at Stanford, I’ve had a lot of opportunity to learn about the history, customs, and art of other cultures, and much of that learning has taken place outside of class. There are all sorts of groups and clubs on campus that celebrate and promote different cultures.
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.
One of the reasons I wanted to blog for undergraduate admissions was to help prospective students understand better what it means to be a student at Stanford. So, it is with great pleasure that I introduce another voice, that of Stanford student Blanca.
I am often asked what my favorite part about Stanford is. That’s easy. It is absolutely the people. The friendships that form here are some of the most beautiful and unique in the world. I really believe that. Where else can you such a density of intellect and diversity? What’s more—these are the relationships that will last for many years to come. These are the people that will come to your aid, any time, any place. I’d like to celebrate that friendship by showcasing a few of the many friendships that make up Stanford.
For many students, Greek life is a huge part of their undergraduate experience, evident by the growing number of members in fraternities and sororities on campus. My sorority, alpha Kappa Delta Phi, has been a significant part of my life.
