Most beautiful Campus

The Campus is well maintained and very very beautiful. A tour of the campus can never be regretted. As good as the science.

As parents we want the best for our kid. We visited trying to let her know that everything is possible. We were there to donate our book "Isabella in the land of fairies" to 2 of Stanford's libraries. It was very exciting.

Visited the Stanford University Complex and was very impressed with the facilities in this sprawling area. The church is amazing and a must visit and if you are able try lunch in the faculty although you may have to be accompanied by a member. We had lunch and it was very good value.

We were in the area so went to see what we could of the campus. The art museum was closed on Sunday, but we had wonderful vistas as we walked around campus. There are many beautiful buildings. Be sure to see the chapel with the painted front surface and the carved archways surrounding the chapel.

I was with a free hour so I decided to visit Stanford on a Friday afternoon. The campus is amazing. Such a great place to study. It took me around an hour to visit some of the buildings. Very nice!
