A Unique Perspective

The Stanford undergraduate population benefits from the wide range of experiences and backgrounds that students bring. Stanford remains one of the most dynamic campuses in the world because of its institutional commitment to diversity.

Veteran applicants add a highly valued voice to the undergraduate community; the life experience that students bring from previous career paths or military service provides a unique perspective in discussion seminars, student groups and campus activities. We select students with varying educational histories, and while we uphold a standard of fine academic preparation and a determined passion for learning, we also look for personal attributes that contribute unique qualities to our already broadly diverse class.
