Gear Up event with Ron Nakao engaged in social science data conversation

On Friday, Oct. 21st, Green Library welcomed data provider representatives from nine different sources at the Gear Up for Social Science Data Extravaganza. The event featured “Data Talks”, time for individual consultations, a Drop-in R lab and a data visualization demonstration using R.

From a major exhibition, to a Band performance, to free Stanford-branded Google Cardboards, to an oral history booth: this Reunion Homecoming the Archives is offering a rich variety of options for alumni and their families.

An exhibit focused on the incomparable Stanford Band is now on display at Arrillaga Alumni Center. One of several exhibits currently displayed on campus in celebration of Stanford's 125 anniversary, and united under the theme of "Stanford Stories from the Archives," the exhibit highlights the history of the Band from its earliest formal performances in the 1890's to the irreverent and beloved campus institution we know today.
