Stanford University: A Shinning Pearl on the Great West Coast

If there is a school which impressed me most, it is Stanford University. It is such an excellent school with amazing research capabilities. 

True to its goal, Stanford indeed continues to "Change the World" by making significant contributions to the betterment of humanity.

The Stanford sprawling campus is strategically located at the heart of Silicon Valley which gives it an enormous advantage for working with entrepreneurs and venture capitalists.

The campus was well planned by its founders Leland Stanford Sr. and Jane L. Stanford. The edifices you can see there were magnificently designed such as the Hoover Tower, the Cantor Arts Center, the Memorial Hall, the Memorial Church and the Stanford Art Gallery.

To me, I like the Stanford campus more than Disneyland or if I can aptly say it, Stanford is the Disneyland for intellectual pursuit.

Here are some of the pictures I took around the Stanford campus.
