Both teaching and discussion components have been splendid. Highly recommend!
Do not always feel pressured to do things like your friends or fellow students. Only compare yourself, not others.
Inclusive and amazing environment, accommodating professors, and amazing academic experience.
Takes on Social life will vary by person.
Stanford University has a plethora of opportunities for undergraduates. No matter what your major is, you will have lots of support from the faculty.
Some professors teach in a style that assumes you have a higher understanding than you probably do. Things that may seem difficult for you will be easy to them, so there is a disconnect.
I think Stanford provides a nice balance of rigorous academics and a vibrant social life. The beautiful campus, combined with amazing Bay Area weather, makes Stanford seem like a place of endless opportunities. The dorms are pretty nice too, and the academic buildings are pretty amazing! All in all, I have loved my time at Stanford.
The new neighborhood system hasn't been implemented in the best way possible - some neighborhoods have much better dorms/locations than others, and with the new neighborhood system, you could get stuck in a dorm area you don't like.
As a rising Sophmore, I couldn’t have ask for a better first year college experience. The resources that Stanford provides is abundant whether it is academic or personal. I’ve made and met so many new friends that come from varying backgrounds. Yes, the academics do get stressful and sometimes seem hard to handle, but with the amazing support from professors, RAs, counselors, and other peers, I was able to soar through my freshman year.
Should be aware of the different teaching styles that are offered at Stanford University. All professors are different, and sometimes that is hard to keep up with.
I loved the people. Everyone is so intelligent and friendly. I also love the variety of courses available to take. I have never seen anything like it before.
I did not like the lack of social life. The work can also get overwhelming.
