Kapjian-Pitt on Stanford
"One of the reasons I chose Stanford is the feeling I get when I am here. It is hard to describe but Stanford is a way of life. Everyone is happy to be here and has a positive outlook. I have made my best friends. It has been such a positive experience and has given me so much for the rest of my life."
