Please note that our primary campus visit program -- "Discover Stanford" (Undergraduate Admission Session and Campus Walking Tour) has been posted for all Mondays and Fridays of Winter Quarter (other than holidays). Monday and Friday are considered our primary "Campus Visit Days." The status of the Discover Stanford program on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays for Winter Quarter is currently still tentative. We anticipate adding a selection of these mid-week dates to our calendar very shortly, along with a selection of 4-6 Saturday dates as well. Look for both sets of these remaining program dates to be posted by November 15 (or sooner!). Note: All other program listings for Winter Quarter are complete. The schedule for Spring Quarter tours and programs (March 30 - June 14) will be posted on or before December 1.

Student Forum for high school students returns on Mondays and Fridays at 12:30

Our popular "Student Forum" program, an informal but informative opportunity for high school students to sit down in a small group and talk with 3-5 current Stanford undergraduates, resumes for the fall quarter on most Mondays and Fridays at 12:30pm, starting Monday, October 7 and continuing through Friday, December 6.

The Student Forum provides a casual, comfortable opportunity for prospective undergraduate students (students only, no parents!) to sit down with 3-5 current undergraduates in a casual, conversational setting to talk about just that. The student hosts will not talk about admission or financial aid, but instead about student life -- academics, athletics, activities, residences, dining, weekends, the social scene, etc. Feel free to bring your lunch if you like. The Student Forum runs from 12:30 until 1:15 on most Mondays and Fridays through December 6 (excluding Thanksgiving Week). The program will resume for Winter Quarter on Friday, January 17. There is no need to register or sign up for the Student Forum -- you can just show up at the Stanford Visitor Center. If you have questions, call our front desk at (650) 723-2560.
