Favorite Stanford Memory:
"It was the first week of my freshmen year when I met my roomie. We had just moved in and we went to the bookstore together to get some supplies and check things out. When we got back to the dorm, I found a flyer in the bottom of the bookstore bag that was for acne medication so I put a sticky note on it that said 'here's something you should look into' then put it on my roomies' desk. When she got home later that day, she read it and started cracking up. It began a war of funny flyers and ads getting passed back and forth between us, but it was that second day being on campus that I knew I had made a life long friend. It is more of a representation of something that reminds me of the connections I have made with the people on campus, in particular those from my freshmen dorm."
