You, and your brain, matter to us. Wear a helmet.

We all know that Stanford is one of the most bike-friendly campuses in the country; and biking to, from, and around campus is a great alternative to driving.

Here at the libraries, we support safe biking. We encourage you to protect yourself and your brain by always wearing a helmet when biking. You should also protect your bike by always using a lock when parking your bike around campus.

The article states that the DLL is the go to resource for assessing students’ oral performance, providing resources for online oral assessments and Simulated Oral Proficiency Interviews (SOPIs). Joseph Kautz, Head of the Digital Language Lab, says, "We believe we are number one," but he is just pleased that Stanford is "ranked among some legendary language institutions nonetheless."
