Just a few miles separates the Comfort Inn Palo Alto with
world-renowned Stanford University. Founded by Leland Stanford and his wife
Jane in 1891, the university is considered to be one of the world’s leading
research and teaching institutions. Stanford University, which offers a wide
array of undergraduate and graduate degrees, is comprised of seven schools.
They are the Graduate School of Business, School of Education, School of Earth
Sciences, School of Humanities and Sciences, Law School, School of Medicine,
and School of Engineering. Athletics are big part of the Stanford experience. And the school has had
its share of major successes. Since the 1980s, a myriad of teams have captured 70 NCAA
championships. The stunningly beautiful campus comprises over 8,000
acres and features many fascinating attractions, including the Cantor Center
for Visual Arts, Rodin Sculpture Garden, Hoover Institution and Hoover Tower, and
Stanford New Guinea Sculpture Garden.
