X marks the spot

Stanford students hustle and bustle and achieve. And sometimes, in the midst of all that, they forget the treasure chest that is this University. Sunk at the bottom of the sea, surrounded by silver fish and warped underwater light—the jewels and quirks are ours for the appreciating. I experimented with deep sea diving this past week (last ocean metaphor I promise) and what I found was a greater connectivity to this place and to myself.
