Stanford Graduate Student Orientation

SLAC Program Sep/19-20/2013 

This is part of the two day program for incoming new graduate students at Stanford starting Fall 2013. The Thursday Sep/19 program will have Stanford campus emphasis, while the Friday Sep/20 program will have SLAC emphasis with research introductions at respective locations, both campus and SLAC have open office/lab programs for both days. With SLAC as in independent school in the Stanford academic system, there are extensive research programs in the two faculties at SLAC for Stanford students to choose their thesis topic and advisor from.

Stanford Campus <=> SLAC Travel

For those who would like to visit SLAC open house/lab on Thursday afternoon, please look for SLAC faculties at Thursday lunch on campus to guide you to the free campus Marguerite shuttle to travel to SLAC. You will also use the Marguerite shuttle to return to campus yourself. For Friday Sep/20, there will be a dedicated bus to take students from campus to SLAC in the morning (depart 8:30am sharp from Roth Way between the Rodin Sculpture Gargen and the Oval). At the end of Friday SLAC open house, students are will also use the Marguerite shuttle to return to campus yourself. Please see the end of this page for details about the Marguerite shuttle.
