Approaching Stanford Handbook

The Approaching Stanford Handbook serves as one of the primary resources for new undergraduate students as they prepare for life on the Farm. The content focuses on supporting a student's transition to Stanford and offers introductions to various offices and programs across campus. Bookmark this page and refer to it as often as necessary. You do not need to read it all in one sitting but you are encouraged to work through it slowly throughout the summer.
