Brunch at the GSB – one of Stanford’s lesser-known eateries

Coupa Café at the Graduate School of Business (GSB) can be a fantastic place to get brunch, especially over the summer. The menu ranges from traditional breakfast items — like coffees, teas, omelets and waffles — to traditional Venezuelan arepas. The food is light but tasty, and not greasy or heavy. Though perhaps too expensive to frequent every day, it remains less pricey than similar options on and around University Avenue and El Camino Real and benefits from its location.

Treehouse building and naked guitar playing: a talk with the new Tree

This year marks the 12th birthday of the Leland Stanford Junior University Marching Band’s (LSJUMB) mascot: the Tree. After a week of treehouse building and naked guitar strumming, computer science major Calvin Studebaker ’15 beat out two other competitors to become Stanford’s next Tree, a role he has embraced with gusto since taking the reins from Nicoletta von Heidegger ’13 in February. The Daily sat down with Studebaker to get the scoop on his Tree Week tryouts, as well as what he hopes to bring to the table come football season next fall.
