The first student body consisted of 559 men and women, and the original faculty of 15 was expanded to 49 for the second year. Today nearly 17,000 undergraduates and about 8,000 attend the university.

“Our students have opportunities to participate in a remarkable range of activities: from academic courses taught by renowned professors and opportunities for research, independent study and public service to an extraordinary breadth of extracurricular activities,” the website stated in 2010. Stanford offers courses ranging from film and media studies to geophysics and much more. “The first-year experience at Stanford is supported by the celebration of the extraordinary talents of the diverse students, faculty and organizations that attract excellent speakers, performers and scholars from around the world.” Undergraduate students have many unique experiences and opportunities at Stanford.
