What Does Stanford Mean to You?
"Stanford is an awesome place that brings together some of the best students and athletes from around the world. The one thing that I love about coming to Stanford as opposed to another engineering school is I get a combination of a great education and great rowing. I appreciate that the athletes here are just as rigorous in academics as they are in athletics.”
