Stanford Traditions: Commencement & Class Plaques

We just celebrated the Classes of 2020 and 2022 over the weekend! It is always especially meaningful for the members of the Approaching Stanford Team to welcome each class to Stanford and then to bid them farewell from the stadium field at Commencement.
One of our favorite Commencement traditions is the Class Plaque, where seniors add mementos to a time capsule under their class plaque. Every Stanford graduating class, dating back to the Class of 1892, has a class plaque placed in line along the arcades of the Main Quad. When you arrive to the Farm, you can visit your class plaque hanging at the Arrillaga Alumni Center where it will be on display for the next few years until it takes its place in the Main Quad. See what this year's seniors tucked under their class plaque!
Check out Stanford Commencement Weekend highlights, including videos from the Wacky Walk (another unique Stanford tradition) and keynote speeches given by Commencement speakers France A. Córdova, '69, and Reed Hastings, '88. In closing to the 2020 graduates, Dr. Córdova noted, “Wherever you end up, you will put a unique stamp on that profession – there is only one ‘you,’ so bring all of yourself to whatever you choose to do.”
We can't wait to see what you will explore and do as you find your own path here at Stanford.
