As campus takes on a hush during the Thanksgiving holiday break, I am inspired to wax poetic about “a few of my thankful things,” if you will. I’m no Maria from The Sound of Music, but I hope that my rendition – in written form – nonetheless captures some of the magic of Stanford. Enjoy!
As I’m writing this, it’s the end of week five. There are ten weeks in our quarters, plus finals week, so that means that we’re halfway through, and it’s midterm season.
I’ve talked about language classes before, but I wanted to come back to the topic now, because I’m taking a different type of language class this year and it’s been great so far!
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.
