For students seeking to take classes, conduct research, or participate in programs or internships at Stanford this summer, the question of where to live on campus — and at what price — is a prevalent one. The Daily spoke with students about the benefits and drawbacks of different housing options with respect to pricing, community and privacy.
PostsMore, a new website launched last month by three undergraduates, aims to better connect Stanford students by consolidating a number of student-facing services that are currently spread across a disparate set of popular social platforms, or cease to exist at all. The site, created by Curtis Staples ’20, Akshay Kalose ’20 and Ethan Aldrich ’21, includes features to help students meet new people across campus, organize rideshares and offer academic advice to their peers, among others.
Students seeking off-campus housing for this summer have become increasingly reliant on social networks and other online tools as a means of dealing with high price ranges and keeping in touch with other students in the area. According to surveyed students, Internet searches — mainly through Craigslist and Facebook — provide the most widely used resources for those looking to rent or sublet accommodations.
