An American College Experience
This program is a great opportunity for international students to experience two weeks on a U.S. university campus. Participants live on campus in dorms that Stanford students reside in during the academic year and are exposed to the American classroom through an eclectic series of workshops.
At the Admissions Talk and College Panel, participants gain knowledge about the U.S. college admissions process, learn how to create a college portfolio, and discover resources available to international students at U.S. universities. They also have the opportunity to ask any questions they may have about admissions at these events.
Our workshops are exploratory in nature and are taught in a seminar-style setting that emphasizes participation, interaction, communication, and developing critical thinking skills. Instructors bring their particular areas of expertise to provide insight into a variety of academic and professional fields.

Dining Halls & Meals
Cluster dinners, social activities, and other events were my favorite parts of the camp, as I was able to make friends from other countries, like China, Japan, Cyprus, and the United States.
