Per our founders' wishes, Stanford's undergraduate curriculum aims to prepare students for "direct usefulness in life" by engaging them in a wide-ranging search for knowledge, regardless of its perceived practical application. Alexander Nemerov, the Carl and Marilynn Thoma Provostial Professor in the Arts and Humanities, offers the first lecture on the purpose of a liberal education and how students will become more than their major. Sponsored by the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education.
New Student Orientation is designed to provide freshmen and new transfer students with an introduction to the whole array of academic, intellectual, leadership, cultural, and social experiences available at Stanford.
