Things to see and do while on campus
  Web Link Hits
  Link   Memorial Church
Stanford Memorial Church stands at the center of the campus, and is the University's architectural crown jewel. It was one of the earliest, and is still among the most prominent, interdenominational churches in the West. The Stanfords decreed the church to be non-denominational, so as to permit the church to serve the broadest spiritual needs of the university community.
524
  Link   Mausoleum and Angel of Grief
The Mausoleum was built to entomb the remains of Leland and Jane Stanford and their son, Leland Junior. The nearby Angel of Grief is a memorial to Jane Stanford's brother, Henry Clay Lathrop. The two memorials are located in the Stanford Arboretum, which sports many different species of trees and birds.

  Link   The Quad
The Main Quad is in many ways the "heart" of campus, and a favorite place for visitors. It contains the university's first buildings and remains a place for students and alumni to gather.
484
  Link   Cantor Arts Center
The Cantor Arts Center boasts a proud and venerable history, as it was conceived of in tandem with the founding of Stanford University itself. The museum was originally created to make the Stanford family's collection available to students and the public. It has withstood natural disasters and periodic neglect, only to be resurrected, renewed, and expanded, with its collections stronger than ever, thanks to the passionate dedication of Stanford faculty and staff, and art lovers in the surrounding community.
437
  Link   Campus Tour
Tour the campus on foot or by golf cart, led by student guides who are well-versed in the University's history, academic offerings and student life.
733
  Link   Hoover Tower Observation Deck
Completed in 1941 to celebrate the university's 50th anniversary, the Hoover Tower Observation Platform provides a panoramic view of the Stanford campus and the surrounding Bay Area.
478
  Link   Arizona Cactus Garden
If you are walking from the Sheraton/Westin, take a short detour and stop by the Cactus Garden. It's recently been renovated with quite an impressive variety of cactus. It is in a very hidden spot on campus and many students don't even know it exists. Fun for kids too with lots of little lizards about!
810
  Link   Walk the Dish
The Dish itself is a radiotelescope (sateliite dish), though at Stanford "The Dish" commonly refers to the area surrounding the radiotelescope, which has great walking trails. The "loops" are 3.5 - 5 miles long, lots of up and down, with lovely vistas and scenery.
