Why Pawliw-Fry Chose Stanford
“First of all, academics are really important to me and Stanford is the number one ranked social science (my area of study) university in the world. I really like the Stanford approach to education: very collaborative in nature and more `easy going` than some other schools I was looking at. I also thought the founding was interesting. It doesn’t hurt that we can row outdoors year round!”
