Once a week, early enough that the sun has barely risen, a small group gathers outside Green Library for an hour or so and chats. Seated around a table at Coupa Cafe, they discuss typical Stanford things: what classes to avoid, what grad schools to apply for, what articles they’ve been reading.
Veterans, staff and community members will be gathering at Stanford today for a pair of Veteran’s Day events. The events will include a celebration of the Marine Corps’ 241st birthday and a Veteran’s Day reception.
Telling: Stanford, a production based on the stories of five members of Stanford’s military-affiliated community, will debut this Thursday evening. The show will be the 36th installment of The Telling Project, a Texas-based national performing arts nonprofit that seeks to promote understanding between civilians and the military by helping veterans and other members of the military community share their stories through theater.
