Vaden Health Center has reported four times as many cases of influenza-like illness compared to this time last year, according to Vaden Medical Director Robyn Tepper. Eleven true influenza-like illnesses had been reported at this time last year, while 45 have already been reported this season.

In response to high demand for flu shots this season and a fully booked scheduled at the Vaden Immunization Clinic, Vaden Health Center has planned three emergency drop-in clinics for students, faculty and staff.
Late-night snacking fuels students to continue working into the night, or perhaps greets them as a beacon of solace, a break from the tedious work that has consumed their day. While some opt to eat in the comfort of their own rooms (on cereal hoarded from the dining halls, pizza delivered to their dorms or even snack food purchased from any number of on- or off-campus convenience stores), others stay local and let Stanford Dining satisfy their hunger pangs.
Arrillaga Family Dining Commons’ crowding issues have subsided considerably since the new dining facility opened this fall. Smaller crowds came after a plea Stanford Dining made in October that students who are not residents of Toyon or Crothers eat elsewhere.
In response to student complaints, Stanford Residential & Dining Enterprises (R&DE) announced in a post on its Facebook page Friday afternoon that its new late-night dining option, The Dish at Arrillaga–which opened last night at the Arrillaga Family Dining Commons–will serve seven days a week as part of a pilot program.
