Dear Class of 2027 and Transfers,

In just two months you'll be moving to Stanford, and we can't wait for you to join us on campus! In this week's newsletter, we invite you to meet us in our summer Zoom sessions (OC Meet-Up, Transfer Workshop), to learn about Stanford by reading the OC Blog, and to watch the 3rd installment of the Introductory Advising Video Series. Also, President Marc Tessier-Lavigne shares an important message with the Stanford community.
Have a great week and reach out if you have questions!

OC Zoom Meet-Up + Q&A: Thursday, 11AM

Come join our Zoom tomorrow at 11am PT to meet the OCs and to ask any questions you may have! We'll have fun together!
The Orientation Coordinators (OCs) are six students working full time this summer as part of the Approaching Stanford/NSO Team. We started our individual outreach to new students inviting you for 1:1 chats to talk about preparing for Stanford. If you don't hear from us, feel free to contact us via Slack in the "Class of 2027 & Transfers" space or email approaching@stanford.edu.

Student Stories on the OC Blog

If you haven't had a chance to visit the OC Blog yet, we encourage you to take a look! For the rest of this summer, the Orientation Coordinators and their friends will be posting about life at Stanford from the student perspective. Do you have requests for what you want the OCs to write about? Let us know! Here's what you can find now on the OC Blog:

Advising Video: Resources for Choosing Courses

Hello from your friendly Academic Advisors! Our third Advising Video is ready to share with you: Resources for Choosing Courses. While our second video was designed to help you start exploring your interests, our third video showcases useful online resources for exploring courses, courses for pre-med students, placement tests and diagnostics, and how to start exploring majors and major requirements.  
Next week's e-newsletter will be dedicated to academic advising, including some of the many resources that Stanford has to help you get the most out of your undergraduate experience. We'll also open up a Q&A board in Canvas to begin responding to your academic questions. On August 14, courses that will be offered in 2023-24 will be listed in Explore Courses, Stanford's online course catalog. And on August 21 for frosh, your assigned advisor will reach out to you to begin the advising conversation. In preparation, we encourage you to watch all the videos in our advising introductory series:
