Stanford Alumni Mentoring (SAM)

Stanford Career Education invites the Stanford Parents’ Club to join their on-line recruitment and mentorship platform SAM. This platform allows alumni, and now parents, to share projects, internships and job opportunities with 13,000 Stanford students and alums. The platform allows you to post a specific job opportunity that you are responsible for or to refer an opportunity that you are aware of.

We especially need internship and job postings for FROSH and HUMANITIES majors, all four years. Paid jobs preferred please. If you have an amazing unpaid opportunity that will open a lot of doors for the student (and you will help them out), post it.

Bike Safety

Key learnings from the Bike & Personal Safety Coffee Chat:

  • Don’t buy an expensive bike.

  • U-locks work best.

  • 70% of undergrads don’t wear bike helmets (messes up hair, not cool), whereas 70% of graduate students do wear helmets.

  • Helmets locked to bikes rarely get stolen.

Personal Safety

  • The Suggested Bike & Pedestrian Day/Night Travel Routes Map 2023-24 can get you to any destination on Stanford campus. They are easy to follow, lighted, paved, visible to campus public safety and have 911 emergency telephone towers.

  • There are roughly three hundreds 911 Emergency Telephone Towers  on Stanford campus, also known as "The Blue Towers",  and many of those are located along the "Suggested Travel Routes". Operation is simple. Just press the big red button on the blue tower to be connected to a police dispatcher. Every location of a blue tower is pinpointed to allow for an emergency call prompt response.
