The Approaching Stanford and New Student Orientation team is thrilled to welcome you as the newest members of the Stanford community. We are eager to get to know you throughout the Approaching Stanford process this summer and engage in orientation events this fall. Beginning June 7, you will receive your first Approaching Stanford newsletter and gain access to Canvas, both of which will be critical sources of information as you begin your Stanford journey. As we get closer to the fall, we'll share the schedule of events and programs that will introduce you to the rich academic, social, and cultural life at Stanford through New Student Orientation.

We know there will be a lot of questions, and we seek to answer them all through our online resources once Approaching Stanford kicks off on June 7. More information will be provided on our website at that time; we have so much to share with you and we are eager to get started!
