    On rediscovering the radio

    Since 1892, I doubt that any Stanford student has ever said, “Gotta go. I’m about to go listen to KZSU.” For those of you who don’t know about KZSU, first, shame on you, and second, KZSU is Stanford’s FM radio station broadcasting from near Memorial Auditorium. Prior to having friends involved with the radio station,…

    What you Googled this week

    Stanford’s 10-week quarters mean that you get to school, the add-drop period begins and ends and then it’s midterm season for the few weeks before finals. Midterms on their own are stressful enough, but given the time crunch that Stanford students face, it’s not easy to avoid a mental breakdown, and nothing defines a breakdown…

    How to stop Stanford from stifling your creativity

    I hear it all the time: “The last time I was creative was in middle school.” We all chuckle as we admit to one another that creative group projects are not where our strengths lie, yet we don’t really question why. Under the quarter system, without scheduled time for creative expression — whether it be…

    Knowing when to quit

    Whether we admit it or not, we all outgrow past interests and part ways with old friends. As dynamic individuals, we all are constantly moving across campus, meeting new people and learning new things that shape our experiences. To say that you’ll leave this campus the same way you entered is ludicrous, and, quite frankly,…

    SoulCycle and frat parties are not that different

    I know what you might be thinking: Why are ‘SoulCycle’ and ‘frat parties’ in the same sentence? Prior to my first SoulCycle experience, I too would have asked the same sentence. In fact, I probably would have laughed at the idea of myself going to the popular indoor cycling class. This all changed when Grind…

    Why journaling beats finsta-ing

    The naked truth is that finstas have evolved as a way to show vulnerability and to showcase a different side of you that people might not generally know about. This is not always conducive to growth. Journaling, on the other hand, has all the benefits of vulnerability with less toxicity.

    Best places to party at the potty, No. 2

    Potty talk is no joke. In fact, after writing an article ranking the best places to party at the potty, I found out that multiple Stanford students had very strong differing opinions. With a campus of over 8,000 acres, Stanford holds many secret gems, including some of the best restrooms I’ve been to in my…

    What the rally you wear says about you

    Equally as important as professional and business attire, most students on campus own some type of rally. The most ridiculous outfits usually make the best rally, and ideally, it should capture some part of your personality. You don’t necessarily have to be creative to wear good rally, but if you’re a natural, the type of…

    Homecoming Weekend: Reflecting as a student

    Stanford Reunion Homecoming always warms me up in the best way. Oddly situated within midterm season, it is a gentle reminder that there is a life after Stanford. With around 6,000 attendees, previous Stanford classes make their presence felt on campus as they swarm once again. With red lanyards around their necks and a general…

    Stern Dining: A Sophomore’s Perspective

    From burrito bowls to the ever-coveted grilled cheese and tomato soup combo, Stern Dining embodied the magical experience that was freshman year. No other dining hall had me biking away from the Sapp Center as quickly as Stern did. Living in all-frosh dorm, rarely did I ever have to schedule lunch with a friend, or…

    A love letter to my readers

    When I first started to write for the Grind, almost a quarter ago, I did not anticipate how my relationship with readers would change. As a news writer by training, the only emails I had gotten prior to the Grind dealt with changing small factual errors in articles. They were the type of emails that…

    Turning the Tables

    Last year, as a newly anointed frosh, my RAs sent me to check out the activities fair. The upperclassmen that I met during NSO warned me to be careful as to how many clubs I signed up for. They also warned me about excessively giving out my email to too many lists. So naturally, I…

    Futility of planning

    Dear frosh, Glad to have you with us. I’ll spare you the “Welcome to Stanford” spiel because real talk: You’re focused on trying to survive, not trying to remember the contents of the fifty near-identical welcome speeches you’ve undoubtedly heard already. I know because last year, I was you. As a current sophomore, I like…

    NSO Nostalgia

    Last year, during this time, the highlight of my New Student Orientation (NSO) was being almost kicked by a Dollie during Band Run. This year, I’m glad to report otherwise. As corny as it sounds, the highlight of my NSO was getting to meet the incoming class of 2023 (or twenty-tree, as the frosh like…

    The end of freshman year

    As the sun sets on my freshman year, I can’t help but look back as well as look forward to what’s to come. Coming into my freshman year, I truly tried to possess an open mindset, and as this year begins to wrap up, I feel like that mentality has integrated itself into my personality.…

    Hey, I got rolled out again

    “Who gets rolled out week nine?” Apparently, I do. It wasn’t too long ago when I was reminiscing about rollout season, and it looks like I got my wish. This time, I got rolled out for Stanford University Dance Marathon (SUDM). As one of the outreach/registration executive members, I will once again be pushing people…

    On the need for spontaneity

    As I write this article, my feet are currently kicking inside of the fountain in front of Old Union. The sun is hitting me at such an angle that it’s warming me up perfectly, and I can’t help but smile at the fact that this is my reality. However, if you were to hit the…

    Best places to party at the potty

    Potty talk is no joke — especially not to The Grind. On a campus with over 7000 undergraduate students, it can be hard to get some alone time especially when it’s time to relieve yourself. That’s why I took the time to do some real investigative journalism and rank all the best — and the…
