    Stanford has a great community, and people can always find a group of people they feel like they belong with. Stanford also allows you to explore your interests, and take the classes you want to take. Stanford has a good party scene, if you want to go out you have the option, but if you don't, Stanford ensures there are other activities available.

    It's a place where you feel like you belong, no matter where you might come from. The people, weather, environment, and staff all combine to give you one of the greatest opportunities to learn and develop in. The people there are definitely not out to get you; I feel like every one there is ready to help you, not tear you down.
