If you're a baseball fan in general or a college baseball fan in particular, this is a special place to watch the sport. I come here on occasion to watch my alma mater play the Cardinal. The field is immaculate, the stadium well designed, the concessions are good, and the staff is very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.

Has to be one of the most beautiful campuses in the country. Was there for parents weekend. What can I say, I fully understand why its always ranked as one of the top universities.

Twelve dollars for a reserved seat. Can't beat that price. Great atmosphere. Great baseball game. Good announcers. Prizes awarded to public during inning relief.

Peaceful, modern campus. Excellent bookstore offering Campus clothing, books, coffee shop and technology. 2 minutes walking to lots of campus fast food places, but the real value is walking around the beautiful, tree filled campus commonly seen in the Stanford logo. We visit many Universities worldwide, some for history i.e. UK, Ireland and Europe, but from an asthmatic perspective Stanford... More

We had a great time exploring Stanford's grounds while on a guided tour, definitely a great motivator for a high school student! Our tour started with semi-formal presentation by a faculty member and answered all possible questions about application & admissions process. After a short break we continued by feet for about a mile and a half walk guided by... More
