About Stanford University (Click here to learn more about Stanford University)
With a total enrollment of 16,419 students, Stanford is a fairly large university. Its student body contains slightly more graduate students than undergraduates, but you don’t need to worry that this will compromise the undergraduate experience; the university remains committed to high-quality undergraduate teaching, in which US News and World Report ranks Stanford 8th in the country.
Stanford tends to draw students who are interested in building the future in cutting-edge fields like computer science, biotechnology, and engineering. Not everyone at Stanford studies or majors in these fields, of course, but they’re especially popular at the college, and the campus culture is one in which innovation and technology are prized, no matter which field of study they’re applied to.
Stanford students tend to be young people who are excited about learning and also thoughtful about how to turn their interests into projects that create a real impact in the world. Formally and informally, university resources, student groups, and the general campus culture encourage students to see the entrepreneurial possibilities that might arise from their academic work.
