Stanford has made a very visible effort to grow its arts scene recently, creating the Stanford Arts Institute, the Anderson Collection, the Bing Concert Hall and ITALIC, a year-long immersion in the arts program for freshmen. But despite Stanford’s growing investment in these expensive arts resources, performing arts groups have been facing difficulty with something crucial:…
Hilarious, simply hilarious. That’s the aptest description I can give for Maria Bamford’s sidesplitting performance last Monday night. Bamford is amply equipped to captivate an audience, and she did just that to a crowd of over 500 people in CEMEX Auditorium.
After their inaugural year, the yearlong residential programs “Science in the Making: Integrated Learning Environment” (SIMILE) and “Immersion in the Arts: Living in Culture” (ITALIC) have adjusted their curricula and structures to better fit the needs of students.
Stand-up comedian Tig Notaro performed last night in Cubberley Auditorium to a full audience. Her show featured audience interaction towards the second half and was followed by a Q&A session moderated by Dan Klein ’91, instructor of improvisation.
Science in the Making: Integrated Learning Environment (SIMILE) and Immersion in the Arts: Living in Culture (ITALIC), two pilot integrated learning environment programs for freshmen, are nearing the end of their first quarter with mixed reviews from students and faculty.
As the class of 2017 arrived at Stanford on Tuesday, 88 of its members moved into Burbank house in Stern Hall to take part in two new integrated learning environments for the upcoming academic year: ITALIC and SIMILE.
The two programs will enroll approximately 45 students each. Around 88 students ranked ITALIC as one of their top two housing choices, while 98 students ranked SIMILE first.
Stanford will launch two new yearlong residential programs for freshmen, modeled off of the well-reviewed Structure Liberal Education (SLE) curriculum, next fall.
