Renaissance chemist

Although Nayoung Woo ’12 will be graduating this spring with a bachelor’s degree in chemistry, her involvement in many activities at Stanford reflects the diversity of her academic interests. She was a student representative on the Study of Undergraduate Education at Stanford (SUES) committee, which included two student representatives and a dozen professors.

Stanford study snacks

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.

A freshman’s first Full Moon

No, this is not an erotic rave but instead an annual campus tradition. Full Moon on the Quad (FMOTQ) began as a quaint tradition in the early 1900s when senior boys would present freshman girls with a flower before giving them a kiss on the cheek as a chivalrous way to welcome them to the Farm. Over the years, FMOTQ has evolved, but still helps welcome freshmen to the community.
