Prospective Graduate Student Open House Apr/2014
This is part of the two day program on Apr/1-2 for prospectiev graduate students admitted to Stanford for Fall 2014. The morning programs are at Stanford campus with research introduction and student dialogue. For the afternoons, both Stanford campus and SLAC have open office and open lab programs for both days, with Tuesday Apr/1 has Stanford campus emphsis, while Wednesday Apr/2 program has SLAC emphasis. With SLAC as an independent school in the Stanford academic system, the extensive research programs in the two faculties at SLAC also offer formal supervision for Stanford student theses.
