  • The First-Year Academic Journey: What Unique Pathways Can You Take?

    What might your first-year academic journey at Stanford look like? Hear from a few faculty representing core Stanford academic programs as well as some students who can tell you about their unique journey.

    Your first year at college is a great time for exploration. Stanford offers a broad range of programs designed to help you do this: Thinking Matters, Program in Writing & Rhetoric, Education as Self-Fashioning, Structured Liberal Education, Introductory Seminars and more–many of which help meet your general education requirements.

  • Exploration, Learning & Discovery: Global Study and Research Opportunities

    Join us to learn about global study and research opportunities from students who have taken part in the Bing Overseas Studies Program (BOSP) and/or conducted research with the support of Undergraduate Research grants housed in the Office of the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education (VPUE).

    Student panelists will share their insights into dynamic academic, internship, and extracurricular opportunities found in study-away programs as well as the process involved in undertaking an independent research or creative project through Undergraduate Research.
