Very historic church in the middle of Stanford University. Lots of beautiful stained glass windows at the alter. Captures 100 years of Stanford

“Incomparable!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2013

Is there a more perfect college campus on earth? I don't think so! Soaring palm trees lining Palm Drive, groves of intoxicating Eucalyptus trees, classic sandstone architecture with perfect arches that has stood the test of time, glorious tiled murals on Memorial Church, the dazzling new Bing Concert Hall, the gorgeous golf course, lovely fountains that create serene oases throughout the campus, and students and professors on bikes everywhere. I would love the opportunity to return there as a student.

“The center of the campus”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2013

Beautiful. Make sure and note the tile work and stay for an organ performance. Walk the quad and feel the energy. FEAR THE TREE!

“The campus is astounding.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2013

The bulk of the billion dollar + construction boom is complete. The new science and engineering quad BY ITSELF would be worth the trip. This is the most awesome campus anywhere and is totally worth a long walking tour.
