I have recently begun to walk around campus barefoot in order to get a better feeling of the university — literally, that is. In trying to ground myself, I have found that walking around barefoot is actually quite liberating. With the return of the sun, wearing sandals felt like heaven. Walking around barefoot is beyond…
Often times, living in — or visiting — one of the highest priced zip codes in America does not allow for as much adventure as one would hope.

Working to improve economic equity is not always easy. But having an economically diverse student body is futile if the only thing it achieves is stratification on campus. If we truly value such diversity, we must work to make sure that students of all classes, not just the upper class, have access to the same resources.

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.

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.
