Discover Stanford is a two-part program designed to help high school juniors and seniors explore the programs, places, and people that define Stanford’s commitment to undergraduate education within the setting of a world-class university.
The first portion of the Discover Stanford program is a one-hour information session conducted by a representative from the Office of Undergraduate Admission. The representative will discuss characteristics that make Stanford distinctive, as well as Stanford’s admission process and commitment to financial aid. (Please note that occasionally the Information Session will follow the Campus Walking Tour.)
Further information about applying to Stanford is available at the Stanford Undergraduate Admission website.
This one-hour walking tour is led by a current student and provides an overview of the undergraduate experience, focusing on academic programs, residential life*, and extra-curricular activities.
* Please note that for privacy and security reasons, this tour does not enter student rooms.
