Stanford is taking a number of precautions in order to help inhibit the spread of COVID-19, also known as novel coronavirus. The Office of Undergraduate Admission is canceling all on-campus tours and information sessions for prospective students through April 15. The Visitor Center will remain open, and visitors will be able to take self-guided tours. Additionally, the in-person Admit Weekend for admitted students, scheduled for April 23-26, has been cancelled. While we are disappointed to take this step, we will be working to develop replacement virtual programming and will provide more details as we are able. For updates regarding both of these cancellations, visit our website at admission.stanford.edu.

Most people bike around campus, but I'm actually pro-walking, says Victoria DiMelis, '22. #Stanford isn't as big as people make it seem, and I really enjoy taking time out of my days to just be with my thoughts. A lot of times, I'm obviously thinking, Okay what do I have to do tonight? What am I directly responsible for? But sometimes, I like to just look around. When I pass visitors, it makes me reflect on when I was a prospective freshman, when I saw campus for the first time. And it makes remember, Oh, this actually is a really awesome place to be”—even if I might have four problem sets due next week.

The final results still may not be in, but 30 Iowans participated in the first satellite caucus at Stanford last night. Organized by Iowa natives Ahmi Dhuna, ‘19, MS ‘20, and Nova Meurice, ‘21, the caucus gave students the opportunity to participate in the election process for their home state without having to pay for a flight home in the middle of winter quarter.
