Stanford has a reputable undergrad education that is bolstered by a community of staff and faculty who are committed to finding part time jobs, internships, and other opportunities for pre-professional experiences outside of the classroom. Situated at the heart of Silicon Valley, recruitment for techies (engineering and computer science majors) and prospective consultants is intense and competitive. We have top ranking business, law, and medical schools, and these connections have definitely helped undergrads. Alumni participation, with events such as Homecoming Reunion and the Alumni Club, is very strong, making us the first university to raise $1 billion dollars in fundraising efforts. With resources in Student Career Education such as BEAM and the online platform Handshake, Stanford really wants to help its students be fully equipped after graduation.
