Dear Stanford Families,

Happy New Year!

Family Weekend is just a few weeks away!

If you plan to join us on the Farm and haven’t done so already, please take a few moments to register. Registration is required and closes on Friday, February 16.

The weekend will be filled with opportunities to spend time with your undergraduate student and experience life at Stanford.

Some highlights:
