So, What Do You Think of Stanford?
The Review asked some of its newest writers what they think of Stanford so far. Here's what they told us...
"The New Fad"
See my flag, I'm patriotic
I love my country
I gave to the relief fund
I donated blood
Did you vote last November?
Well, ah, no....
Your flag is backwards.
Molly Amanda White
Life at Stanford has been pretty good so far -- the weather is beautiful, lectures are short, and everyone is extremely smart and ready to learn. On the other hand, a lot of stuff during orientation was just plain weird. I guess a lot of those things needed to be said, but holding hands and singing was a little too far out for me. After all, who says everyone is anti-nuclear?
At Faces of Community during Orientation, everyone sang, "we are an anti-nuclear, gentle, angry people." I hope this does not mean we are a pacifist people, willing to ignore or "try to understand" the evil that has attacked America and civilization. Let's not follow in the footsteps of Cal (sucks!) and surrender America for "peace."
Some tend to worry about freshman 15 as soon as they step on campus. Well so far, the only creatures I've seen with that problem are the Stanford squirrels. They look better fed than any of the students. What dining hall do they go to?
Congratulations to Chuck on his recent adventures in the quad. The Tree did an fantastic job this past Full Moon, at least setting a record for the number of kisses for a male tree: over six hundred!
Food? At least we have consistency. Weather? We're so lucky that we get to experience all four seasons in one day! Classes? Learning how to swing is definitely worth $38,000. Dorms? Stop complaining about the size of your room...come over to Granada...Overall? I'll keep you posted.
