Now that the school year is over, there are 1,691 incoming Stanford undergraduates who, for the most part, are on summer break and eagerly awaiting the beginning of their Stanford careers. While I’m glad I thoroughly enjoyed that summer, there are a few things I wish I had done before coming to Stanford. These are just suggestions that I wish someone had told me…
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.
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 reader* asked me for an update on my day-to-day life at Stanford. It’s hard to describe such a thing because each day is different, but here’s an update of some of the events that I’ll be going to this week!
One of the biggest factors that I looked into when I was choosing a college was the surrounding area. What I liked about Stanford was that it was in between two big cities, San Francisco and San Jose (I’m Vietnamese, so San Jose has a dear place in my heart). However, I found that Palo Alto, the charming city next to Stanford, also had things for me to explore. Below, I’ve compiled a list of places that I’ve found throughout my years at Stanford.
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.
