Lorei on Stanford
"One of the best things about Stanford is we are given every opportunity to succeed and pursue whatever we want to do. I’ve appreciated how much professors are willing to help students out. The athletic department staff is also really willing to provide whatever support you need. They put us in position to have the most successful college career we can."
