What is your overall opinion of this school?

I adore it! Stanford was, and still is, my dream school. It isn't perfect, but I wouldn't trade any of the experiences I've had here; late-night adventures, inspiring peers, and phenomenal resources have given me a plethora of opportunity. If you want to fill your life chock full of stories, Stanford is a great place to go.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Stanford with all my heart. There is something about biking through the main quad that just makes waking up at 8 am much easier. The small class size and easily accessible professors makes learning much easier. And, there are people everywhere willing to help.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Stanford is a great school and I feel so blessed to be here. It simply has everything that a college student dreams of having. Great Academics, Great Infrastructure, Great communities and most importantly great people. I have grown so much in my freshman year and it seems to me that I will have much more growth in the years to come.

Stanford

The culture for learning and growing is phenomenal. And the location cannot be beat when compared to other top-tier schools. The weather is great year-round. Being in Silicon Valley and in the SF Bay Area makes job hunting and networking for after graduation easy.

You'll be part of a start-up one way or another

Being in the land of unicorns, it isnt difficult to get into the mood of wanting to create something that will change the world (and get tons of VC funding) You learn as much as you need to know. If you want to go above and beyond (like everyone on campus) you need to find a way to make yourself look unique to you your professors.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would tell myself to not waste time. When you find yourself just sitting around, doing nothing or watching TV just because you don't have anything you HAVE to do, do something. You feel like time is unlimited, but college made me realize that there is so much I want to do, and so little time. If only I had the motivation and sense of time pressure when I was younger, I could've done so much more. I want to learn so many topics in math, want to learn so many programming languages, learn how to make websites and apps, work out to keep healthy, learn how to play guitar, improve my singing, etc. All of these interests I had before college, but college made me realize how much I wanted to pursue them. I see these incredible people in college who developed unique and incredible skills, and it makes me wish that I too had done more in high school. Fun does not have to be unproductive, pursuing your dreams, however small or large, is the most fun that I realized is possible.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Academics are important, but don't make them your entire life. That is the advice I would give to me high school self. When I was in high school, I was highly ambitious and hard-working. I spent all day at school, did extra activities before and after school, and did homework as soon as I got home. While these traits were valuable in getting into college, I sometimes feel that I missed out on a lot of experiences. When you get to college, your hard work will still be very important. However, success in college is not just about test scores or a GPA. You will be expected to demonstrate passion, creativity, leadership, and critical thinking. Take time to develop passions. Learn an instrument, learn new languages, read for pleasure. When you get to college, you'll eventually do all of these things, but start now. One day, you'll realize that grades aren't everything. Right now, it's probably difficult not to define yourself by your achievements. Take time to do something you love and create an identity for yourself outside of school. And keep up the good work.

What kind of person should attend this school?

People who are outgoing and ambition, but also enjoy having fun. The school definitely seems to be a better place for extroverted people who are willing to put themselves out their and show inititative.
