Overall its a great place to be and study. There is something to do for everyone and anybody can find an intellectual pursuit they enjoy. Stanford has an awesome weather too and everybody enjoys it outside playing sports recreatively or doing fun activities.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Stanford has provided me with opportunities galore, a community of students who are invigorated to learn, professors who are at the top of their fields, and a place to work hard but enjoy my weekends and social activities. Courses are rigorous and fast paced but professors are willing to help and be accommodating, and there are many services and tutoring to get help if needed. I love this place! It's beautiful, and every person I meet is so diverse, truly bringing something special to the campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The nerds who work hard and play hard. Stanford is reputable for its hard to get in status, because it's true! The competition to become an admitted student is fierce, and so thousands of students and parents around the world dream of going to the school. AFTERWARDS, when you become an enrolled and current student, the atmosphere is reverse. Everyone at the school is humble about their accomplishments and wants their peers to succeed. Collaboration is a major part of everyday life. This is without a doubt the greatest school on the planet.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Stanford. I've made a lot of friends, made a strong connection with the Black, arts, and Black arts communities. All of my classes have been amazing and incredibly eye-opening. My professors for the most part have been great and willing to partake in conversation about topics from lessons outside of class and also allowed for conversation about real world issues outside of class during class discussions. That being said, there is a large amount of unchecked privilege on campus amongst students and professors that could be discussed and shifted.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Stanford has surpassed all of my expectations. There is always something to do on campus, so you will always find something that interests you. There are endless study spots both indoors and outdoors, so it is easy to shake things up a bit whenever you are struggling to stay focused. Academics are exceptional: class sized are relatively small and professors are always willing to get to know their students and provide them with one-on-one help. However, my favorite part about Stanford are the people. They are all incredibly intelligent, compassionate, quirky, and down-to-earth. In my two years here, I have yet to have a dull moment; they make life at Stanford a lot less stressful.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Stanford University is a really wonderful place, regardless of what type of person you are. Though its proximity to Silicon Valley can definitely be felt, Stanford has very rich programs in the social sciences, arts, humanities and natural sciences as well, and channels a lot of funding into enriching these programs. Furthermore, I believe that the presence of technology has helped enrich the way these subjects are taught and studied: see our Digital Humanities program, the CS+X majors, and various other initiatives. Though we tend to get stereotyped as a 'STEM' kind of school, I find that almost everyone I've met here has a wide array of interdisciplinary interests. We definitely work hard and play hard as well--Stanford has a great athletics program and a fun party scene, but be prepared to spend many long nights (and buckets of tears) on the challenging problem sets. I couldn't ask to be part of a more genuine, kind, and innovative community!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely love the college I attend. As a low income, first generation student, Stanford provides a lot of resources that allow me to succeed and prosper here, including allowing students to request money once a quarter for extreme circumstances, and waiving club fees. The class sizes were a little large for me, coming from a graduating class of 67 students, but after a while I came to enjoy it because there are so many people and personalities to form study groups with. It's also a beautiful campus, the facilities are modern and kept very clean and updated. Professors are, for the most part, very friendly and accessible, and do all they can to help you with your grades, especially in stem fields. As someone wanting to go into neuroscience as a woman, I feel like I have a lot of support and encouragement.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Stanford is a beautiful place. The campus is magnificent, just by seeing Palm Drve alone you know how beautiful the rest of campus is. It's a bike-firendly campus so that's a plus. The food is great and very thoughtful, there are so many options: gluten-free, vegan, vegetarian, kosher etc. I've met the best and nicest people here who happen to be as beautiful as campus is. The only downpoint is that the financial aid policy here is beyond deplorable. So many students take leaves or drop out that it is seen as normal by the institution. Otherwise, Stanford is a wonderful place.

It is a very good university. I am immensely enjoying my time here at Stanford University. The professors are very knowledgable in their subject fields and most are very active in the overall community, which is a huge benefit for all students at Stanford.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Stanford is beautiful and rich with knowledge. I stayed on the campus for four weeks for the JSA Summer program and was quite impressed with it. The campus is gorgeous, there's a mall that is walking distance and a train to take you to the city which makes it easy to shop, and the overall facility for either sports or other subjects is breathtaking. I highly recommend applying for this school. There's just no other way to put it into words.
