The interaction among peers and faculty members is one of the things that attract me to Stanford. The thought of being able to ask my professor a question and not get the answer "you should know this by now" is the most pleasurable feeling ever. Because of the variety of cultures there is in Stanford, I am looking forward to learning each and every single one of them.Knowing that a college in not only based on studies but thinking outside the box really fits my motto: the sky is the limit. Being able to conduct research on things that really interest me is another plus. Having come from a relatively small school where there is only enough space for a volleyball court, the variety of athletics club really astonishes me. I am glad to know that I would be able to participate in other sports other than volleyball or ping pong.Having the dream to be able to travel the world when I retire I am really looking forward to partake in the study aboard programs that Stanford offers to students. The exchange programs can broaden my horizon and expand my knowledge on matters. The idea of learning other people's culture from these study aboard programs really gets my heart raising and because of the diversity of cultures in the university, I'll be able to continue my learning even if my study aboard program ends. The many opportunities that Stanford offer will help me become the person that I wish to become.
