Those in the Peterson Gallery on the 2nd floor examine student life decade by decade beginning with the Pioneer Class. The south lobby of Green Library's east wing features a display of "Athletic Firsts." Beginning October 20, 2016, "Stanford Innovators" will be on display inthe Bender Room, and the Arrillaga Alumni Center will feature "Incomparable: the Stanford Band."
