"EALC has provided me the space and freedom to take advantage of the ample Stanford resources to pursue my broad interests. The community experience stands out as unique among academic institutions. The BBQs, Knight basement parties, pre-class coffee, and post-class happy hours combine to create a positive environment while one works through classes, exams, and dissertations. Whether inside the Knight Building or over Zoom, EALC’s tightknit community supports students' academic goals and life journeys."
