Worth it

Do a lot of research and ask questions on your own and try your best to figure out your goals early on and then Stanford will get you there. But you got to know what you want first, which can take a while to figure out.

Competitive school

For HS students interested in Stanford, know that Stanford looks at more than just your grades. You need some extra-curricular activities in your resume. You need to be a solid citizen.

About the accommodation

Stanford University is a residential teaching and research university. About 6,105 undergraduates live on campus, allowing for a blending of academic and residential life. Undergraduate campus housing is guaranteed for four years for entering freshmen. Approximately 95 percent of all undergraduates registered at the home campus live in on-campus housing, with 5 percent residing at overseas campuses or the Bing Stanford in Washington Program. The undergraduate housing system includes 78 very diverse residential facilities, including academic-focus, language and culture, and cross-cultural houses; student-managed row-type houses; apartments; suites; and traditional residence halls. Faculty or senior staffs serve as live-in resident fellows in residences that house first-year students, in academic-focus houses and in some houses for upperclassmen. About 13 percent of students join one of the 17 fraternities or 12 sororities recognized on campus. Seven fraternities and three sororities offer housing. Stanford Dining serves about 3,250,000 meals annually. Students living on campus are required to purchase a meal plan and typically eat in a dining hall located within their home on campus. The Stanford University Department of Public Safety is a multi-service agency providing law enforcement, security, safety, crime prevention and emergency services on the Stanford campus 24 hours a day.
