A nice place to take a walk. A big campus ground to cover, with abundant of stuff to explore. There is a lot of other attraction around this area too. Take some time to explore and expect a lot of walking.

I have serious health issues which require me to always be at a tertiary care center. most teaching hospitals are an operations nightmare due to huge bureaucracies. Stanford really has their act together. They don't have the communications and logistics problems that I have seen in so many large teaching hospitals-and it's a beautiful campus! Great job, folks!

I knew that Stanford was a high caliber university, but I didn't realize how beautiful the campus would be. Definitely a well-planned university from its inception 125 years ago.

I just went to see the Rodin sculpture garden and was blown away! And it's free! I really enjoyed walking around and exploring Stanford. The museaum is also worth a visit.

I love visiting the Stanford campus ... it's always sooo vibrant and alive. Athletic events are fun, but also the cultural and arts scene is just as vibrant. The Bing Concert Hall is a gem, and Memorial Church is truly stunning. Lucky are the students who get to attend this outstanding university. I feel fortunate just to be able to... More
