Editorial Board: The doldrums of freedom

This Board is worried by the increasing homogeneity of experience on campus. Stanford University is not doing enough to encourage the creative, wacky, eccentric environment that has made Stanford different — and an oasis — for decades. Our advice to Stanford is to follow the model of the tech industry, to which it is so closely linked: disrupt. Rather than following the other prestigious universities, we should chart our own course that pushes students to think differently and act differently, if they so choose.
