Thank you, Senator Matthew Wigler, and the whole of the 20th Undergraduate Senate for passing the recent Resolution to Better Serve Veterans at Stanford. Your unanimous vote affirming student veterans is momentous and reflects great credit on the character and culture of the Senate and students it represents. Your comprehensive resolution, if acted upon, will increase meaningful diversity, enrich the education of all students, and ensure veterans become a more visibly valued component of Stanford’s extraordinary community.
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.
