Events and Engagement

Excursions and Community Events

Experience Stanford's rich student life through dances, talent shows, and community gatherings. Attend campus cultural and sports events like a San Jose Earthquakes game or a concert at the Frost Amphitheater. Explore the Bay Area with excursions such as a visit to San Francisco, a day at Great America Amusement Park, or a trip to the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk.
*Registration for off-campus excursions is limited to residential students. Space is limited and students are not guaranteed a space. On-campus excursions are open to residential and commuter students, but space is limited and students are encouraged to register for as many events as desired.


Hosted through the Summer Academic Resource Center (SARC), we offer a variety of educational workshops to complement your academic pursuits. Presenters varying from Stanford affiliates, community partners, and graduate tutors will cover a wide range of topics from academic skills to career exploration. Past workshops included college preparedness, software exploration, and building your professional network.

Stanford Spaces

Explore the intellectual eco-system of the Stanford campus. Tour museums like the Cantor Arts Center, visit unique campus spaces like the, Frost Amphitheater, and O’Donohue Family Farm, and get to know the unique community of companies and innovators that gather at Stanford Research Park.

Stanford Voices 

These small gatherings give you an opportunity to connect with Stanford faculty, fellows, and alumni to hear about their work or research, as well as the road that brought them there. Ask questions and continue your intellectual exploration—whether you're taking a course on the topic this summer or just curious.
