Stanford has come a long way from the stock farm that Leland and Jane Stanford decided to turn into a small university in 1891. While the couple was blueprinting the picture of university in Palo Alto, they visited Cornell, Yale, Harvard and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
They talked with President Eliot of Harvard about three ideas: a university at Palo Alto, a large institution in San Francisco combining a lecture hall and a museum, and a technical school. Asked which of these seemed most desirable, Eliot answered, a university. Mrs. Stanford inquired how much the endowment should be, in addition to land and buildings, and he replied, not less than $5 million. A silence followed. Finally, Mr. Stanford said with a smile, "Well, Jane, we could manage that, couldn't we?" and a grave Mrs. Stanford nodded her assent.
Just over 100 years later, the university continues to grow and change to make the most of its faculty and student on its huge campus of 8,180 acres locate in the heart os Palo Alto and Silicon Valley, an hour drive away from San Francisco.
Far removed from the cold winters a deep-rooted tradition of the Ivy League, Stanford, just over 100 years old, is a young institution still creating its offerings for its 6,500 undergraduate students. In 1997 a set of eighty new seminars was offered for the first time to the incoming freshman class. A three-year-old program called “Sophomore College” lets sophomore apply to take one of a set of intensive small seminars with a faculty member for a few weeks before regular classess start in the fall. The academic programs constantly changing and being modified, and student input plays a role in what is kept and what is discarded.
As at any other top university, you’ll find quite a few people stumbling out of the library at midnight, only to back at the same desk the next day after classess end. The courses are demanding, and there a few students who don’t spend at least a few sleepless nights in the computer centers or in the twenty-four-hour study room attached to Meyer Library. But at Standford, the perpetually shining shun makes it hard to study indoors and stress over school all the time. The change in Standford’s reputation and academic fortunes was almost as rapid. Always known as a leader in both the sciences and the liberal arts, the school seems on the verge of becoming, “Stanford Tech.”
Stanford's current community of scholars includes: • 17 Nobel laureates • 4 Pulitzer Prize winners • 23 MacArthur Fellows • 21 recipients of the National Medal of Science • 4 National Medal of Technology recipients • 224 members of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences • 133 members of the National Academy of Sciences • 82 National Academy of Engineering members • 25 members of the National Academy of Education
스텐포드대학은 1891년르랜드 와 제인 스텐포드 부부의 농장 부지에서 시작된 작은 대학에서 시작한다. 이들 부부가 자신의 사재 500만달러를 내놓고 팔로 알토 지역에 교육 기관을 설립하고자 하는 꿈을 구체화 하기 전에 동부의 아이비 리그 대학들인 코넬, 예일, 하버드, 그리고 MIT 공대를 순회하였다. 하버드대학을 방문해서 당시 엘리엇 총장을 면담해서 다음과 같은 세가지 방안중에서 어떤 것이 가장 좋은 선택임을 묻게 되었는다: 첫째 팔로알토 지역에 대학을 설립하는 일, 둘째 샌프란시스코 지역에 대규모 강의실과 박물관을 세우는 일, 세번째로 기술학교를 설립하는 일 이었는데 엘리엇 총장은 첫번째를 권장하였고 이들 부부는 그 의견을 받아들여 팔로알토 지역에 스탠포드 대학을 설립하였다.
그로 부터 100여년이 지난 지금, 샌프란시스코에서 1시간 가량 떨어진 팔로알토 (Palo Alto)와 실리콘벨리 (Silicon Valley) 심장부에 위치한 광대한 지역에 펼쳐져 있는 8,180 에이커 규모의 스텐포드대학교는 미국에서는 가장 큰 규모를 가진 캠퍼스들중에 하나가 되고 있다.
매서운 겨울의 강풍과 역사의 깊은 뿌리를 두고 있는 동부의 아이비리그 대학들과는 멀리 떨어져 있으며 100년이 조금 지난 상대적으로 짧은 역사를 가진 대학이지만 서부지역에서는 학문적으로 확고한 전통과 명성을 한몸에 얻고 있는 스텐포드 대학교는 다른 명문대학들과 마찬가지로 상당수의 학생들이 자정까지 도서관에서 공부하다가 다음날 학교 수업을 마치고는 다시 같은 자리로 돌아와서 공부를 계속하는 모습을 보는 것이 당연하게 여겨지는, 전통적으로 인문계열과 과학의 영역에서 서부의 최고의 자리메김하고 있는 스텐포드는 위치적으로 실리콘벨리의 핵심부에 있기에 스텐포드기술(‘Stanford Tech’) 이라는 명성을 얻게 되었으며, 기술, 공학, 컴퓨터분야에서 졸업생들의 활약이 두드러진 약진을 보이고 있다.
교수진에는 17명의 노벨상 수상자들, 4명의 퓰리처상 수상자들과 23명의 맥아터기금 연구학자들 뿐만 아니라 각분야의 석학들이 대거 포진해 있으며, 재학생 모두는8백만권의 장서를 보유한 도서관의 서적들에 대해서, 소크라테스(Socrates)라는 온라인 시스템을 통해 자료 조사를 할수 있다. 스텐포드에는 지구과학(Earth science), 공학 (Engineering), 인문과학 (Humanities and Science) 의 3개 학부와 대학원이 있으며, 대학원만으로는 경영학, 교육학, 법학, 의학 분야가 있다.
1997년 부터는 모든 신입생들은 80개의 학술 세미나에 소속 하도록 되어 있으며, 대학 2학년 부터는 소위 “Sophomore College” 라고 하는 제도에 따라 모든 학생들이 담당교수의 지도하에 심도있는 학술 연구 세미나에 참여해야 하는 의무가 주어진다. 광범위한 특별활동 영역이 다양하게 펼쳐지는 캠퍼스는 아름다운 건축물들과 ‘로뎅’의 걸작품들의 보고이기도 하다.
스텐포드 출신중에는 다음과 같은 저명한 동문들이 있다.

• John Elway NFL 쿼더백

1. Freshman Class Profile (신입생 내력)
18,628 applied (지원) 2,343 admitted(입학허가), 1,640 enrolled (최종등록).
Public high school 71.6%, prive high school 28%.
2. Admission Requirements (입학요건):
Students who derive pleasure from learning for its own sake thrive at Stanford. We look for distinctive students who exhibit energy, curiosity and a love of learning in their classes and lives.
Academic excellence is the primary criterion for admission, and the most important credential is the transcript. We seek outstanding students who have selected a rigorous academic program and achieved distinction in a range of courses. We also take into consideration personal qualities—we want to know how students have taken advantage of available resources and their promise for contributing to the campus community and the world beyond Stanford. In some cases, exceptional ability in a particular area may be considered if an applicant is otherwise highly qualified.
Stanford recommends that prospective students take a minimum of four years of English, four years of mathematics, three years of laboratory science, three years of the same foreign language and three years of history or social studies. Each year, many more highly qualified students apply than the university has places for in the freshman class of 1,600 and the transfer group of about 80.
Stanford is committed to a need-blind admission policy for U.S. citizens and permanent residents—admitting qualified students without regard to their ability to pay—and to providing a comprehensive financial aid program for all admitted students who have computed need as determined by the university and who meet other requisite conditions for financial aid. Financial aid was provided to about 74 percent of undergraduate students from a variety of internal and external sources in 2002–2003.
The SAT I or ACT is required; the SAT I is preferred. The University recommends that applicants have strong preparation in high school English, math, a foreign language, science, and social studies. SAT II Subject tests are strongly recommended. AP credits are accepted. Important factors in the admission decision are advanced placement or honor courses, personality/intangible qualities, and recommendations by school offcials.
표준시험 성적으로 SAT I 이나 ACT 성적이 필요하지만 SAT I 성적을 제출하는 것이 바람직하다. 고교 재학시 영어(4), 수학(4), 외국어(3), 과학(3), 사회학(3) 전반에 걸쳐서 탁월하게 우수한 성적을 유지해야 할 뿐아니라 다방면에서 심도있는 코스들 에서도 두각을 나타내야 한다. SAT II 과목시험 성적을 제출하는 것이 매우 유리하다. AP 성적 크래딧을 인정받을 수 있다. 입학 사정에서 중요하게 고려되는 사항으로는 AP나 어너과목을 좋은 성적으로 이수함은 물론이거니와 개성, 잠재적 우수성, 추천서다.
Preparing for Stanford — Grade 11 (스텐포드대학 입학사정의원회에서 11학년생들에게 주는 조언)
If you plan on applying to college during the 12th grade, then 11th grade may be the most important year to prepare. As the last full year of school that colleges can evaluate before they make a decision on your application, what you do in class and out of class during 11th grade is crucial. This year is also when you should begin preparing for college applications by researching colleges and signing up to take standardized tests for the first time. Here are some reminders of things to do during your junior year, no matter which colleges you are considering.
Meet with your counselor early and often.
It is very important this year to talk regularly and openly with your counselor about your college hopes and plans. It may be helpful to have conversations about what colleges to begin exploring, and what you need to do during this year to maximize your applications. Work with your counselor to build a course schedule that challenges you at all times and that satisfies the requirements for graduation.
Learn about the admission process from friends who are applying.
If you have friends, neighbors, or relatives who are applying to colleges this year, use their experiences to see what the process is actually like. Note when the busiest times of the year are for them, ask if there is anything they would do differently if they could do it all over again, and talk to them about what they like about the schools to which they are applying. This friendly advice will help you tremendously when it is your time to apply.
Work hard and discover what subjects most excite you.
No college will admit you simply because you appear to be the best at everything. College admission officers want to see your passions. Of course they will expect that you earn the best grades that you can. But more important, they will want to see that you are earning those grades because of your interest in learning and quest for knowledge, not just because you want to be the best in your class. If you do not have the highest grades in your class, do not give up…continue to try your hardest, challenge yourself, and find real enjoyment in the questions and topics that you are studying.
Take the Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude (PSAT).
The PSAT is basically a practice for the SAT. Scoring well on the PSAT can be an indication to colleges and universities that you are ready for the demands of college work; many colleges and universities will send you information about their schools if they are impressed with your scores. You can also enter scholarship competitions if you score highly on the PSAT, such as National Merit, National Achievement, and National Hispanic Scholarships.
Register early for the SAT or ACT.
The PSAT is not the only way to improve your SAT scores. You can also take the actual test in May or June. Perhaps you will be happy with your scores after taking it in the spring; in that case you will be done with them. If not, you will be even more prepared to take the tests again in the fall of your senior year. Ask your counselor if there are any books or online tutorials at your school to help you prepare for these tests, one or both of which will be required by most of the colleges to which you will apply.
Do not forget the SAT Subject Tests.
The SAT Subject Tests measure what you have learned in specific courses. Because of this, it is a good idea to take these tests soon after you complete a course. If you are taking American History or Chemistry during junior year, for example, it might make sense to sign up for the June SAT Subject Tests in American History or Chemistry while the material is still fresh in your mind. Many colleges will require three SAT Subject Tests – one in math and two in subjects you choose. You will be able to take three SAT Subject Tests on the same test date, but you cannot take the SAT Reasoning Test and any SAT Subject Tests on the same day.
Deepen your commitment in extracurricular activities.
During 11th grade, seek out ways to become more involved in the clubs and activities that most excite you. Assume leadership roles on specific projects or run for one of the leadership offices in the organization. Talk to your coaches or advisors about your exciting ideas for the club or team and ask if there are any other ways that you can develop your talents and interests. Remember that colleges will be less interested in what a specific club is and more interested in your specific involvement with it – colleges will want to see that you are providing creative energy and exciting leadership to the activities you most enjoy.
Discuss with your favorite teachers the possibility of them writing recommendations for you.
Most colleges will require two letters of recommendation from teachers who know you well. These teachers should have taught you in the core academic subjects of English, math, foreign language, social studies, and science. If you have a particularly strong relationship with a teacher from the 11th grade, be sure you talk to them before the summer and ask if they will be able to write a recommendation for you the next year. By asking early, they will be able to think about your recommendation over the summer. When you return for 12th grade, seek out these teachers once again and ask them if they are still available to write a letter on your behalf.
Pre-register for challenging 12th grade courses.
If your school requires that you pre-register during the spring of your 11th grade for your 12th grade classes, make sure that you seek out the courses that will challenge you and excite you the most. If you can fit Honors or Advanced Placement courses into your schedule, remember to sign up for them early. Also remember that colleges will want to see a full and demanding load throughout the entire year; do not think that once you submit your applications in December or January you no longer need college-prep courses. At all times, choose from among the most rigorous courses you can in English, math, foreign language, social studies, and science while remembering to satisfy all requirements for graduation.
Begin exploring the colleges that interest you.
You should not wait until the last moment to decide the colleges to which you might want to apply. When you hear of a new college that sounds like a good fit, research it by looking in guidebooks or at the college’s website. If possible, visit colleges during the summer to hear about the unique programs at that school and to learn about the college admission process there.
