Stanford Where You Live

Career ServicesEvery month, there are plenty of new and interesting alumni events and activities happening around the world—likely in your backyard. Alumni in regions with a high concentration of fellow grads (15 regions in all) receive a monthly email with the complete digest of stuff to do plus info about virtual Stanford opportunities and more. Don't live in a region with an e-newsletter? That's okay—keep your email and mailing address current so you'll receive emails about local events in your area when they occur. Want to plan an event where you live? Contact Ryan Goetz, '09 at for more information.

Don't miss out! Make sure Stanford has your preferred address on file.Update Your Email
