Stanford University was established in 1885 by Leland and Jane Stanford as a tribute to their late son, Leland Stanford Jr. It officially opened its doors in 1891 on the couple's former farm in Palo Alto. The Stanfords drew inspiration from prestigious Eastern universities, particularly Cornell University in New York. In fact, Stanford was often referred to as the "Cornell of the West" in 1891 because many of its faculty members had previously been affiliated with Cornell, including its first and second presidents, David Starr Jordan and John Casper Branner. Both Cornell and Stanford were pioneers in making higher education inclusive, non-religious, and accessible to both women and men. Cornell is recognized as one of the first American universities to embrace this progressive approach, and Stanford followed suit early on. As of 2022, the university is divided into seven academic schools. The schools of Humanities and Sciences, Engineering, and Sustainability offer both graduate and undergraduate programs, while the Schools of Law, Medicine, Education, and Business only offer graduate programs. The Academic Council, which consists of various faculty members, including the university president, holds the powers and authority over the university. However, the Faculty Senate, comprised of elected representatives, handles most of the university's matters.

Stanford University, officially known as Leland Stanford Junior University, is a prestigious private research institution located in Stanford, California. The Stanford University campus spans over 8,180 acres, making it one of the largest in the United States. With an enrollment of over 17,000 students, Stanford is highly regarded worldwide. It was established in 1885 by Leland Stanford and his wife, Jane, in memory of their son who passed away at the age of 15. The university began admitting students on October 1, 1891, and has since remained a coeducational and non-denominational institution. The university is structured into seven schools located on one campus. There are three schools with 45 academic departments for undergraduate studies, and four professional schools that offer graduate programs in law, medicine, education, and business. Additionally, the university is home to the Hoover Institution, which is a think-tank focused on public policy. As of April 2021, Stanford University has been associated with 58 Nobel Prize winners, 29 Turing Award winners, and 8 Fields Medal winners, who have either been students, alumni, faculty, or staff members. Moreover, Stanford is well-known for its emphasis on entrepreneurship and has been highly successful in securing funding for new businesses. Stanford alumni have established a multitude of companies, collectively generating over $2.7 trillion in annual revenue.

Campus Life

Stanford's long been known for its fun, irreverent, whimsical social scene. Yet it just hasn't felt as vibrant as it could be. Now, a group of alumni, students, staff and families are getting together to accelerate undergrad social life on The Farm.

Academics: At one campus, there are seven schools that provide students with endless possibilities to explore their interests and work together to find solutions for challenging global issues.

Student Groups & Organizations : As of 2020, Stanford University had over 600 student organizations. These groups are usually, but not always, partially funded by the university through allocations determined by the student government organization, known as the ASSU. The funding includes "special fees," which are decided upon by a vote from the student body during the Spring Quarter. These organizations cover a wide range of interests including sports, career development, community service, cultural diversity, fraternities and sororities, health and counseling, media and publications, the arts, political and social awareness, as well as religious and philosophical affiliations.
Community Diversity: We are dedicated to offering opportunities for progress to all deserving students, and the diversity of Stanford's inaugural class exemplifies this commitment. They highly appreciate the valuable viewpoints, abilities, and innovative ideas that individuals from different backgrounds contribute to the Stanford community.
Sports Programs: Sports Programs are offered and scholarships are also available for athletics.
Health & Wellness: Stanford BeWell provides incentive, programs and activities for the health and wellness of the students. It also offers recreational activities for the students.

Hostel & Facilities

The majority of undergraduate and over 65% of graduate students live in 81 undergraduate student residences and 151 graduate on-campus residences. Additionally, there are nine dining halls, a teaching kitchen, and organic gardens that offer the campus community nutritious and environmentally-friendly meals.

On-Campus Residences: Stanford University Hostels ensures that incoming freshmen will have campus housing for twelve academic year quarters, either fully or partially. Transfer students are guaranteed housing for nine quarters. Additionally, all first-year students must live on campus.

Off-Campus Residences: Stanford University has made arrangements to rent apartments in Palo Alto, Menlo Park, and Redwood City to address the growing need for housing. These apartments, which are subsidized by the university, will be available alongside the on-campus housing options in the Lottery application. The apartments come fully furnished and the cost of rent will cover utilities such as water, heat, electricity, garbage, sewer, and internet.
