Welcome to Human Biology. You’ve been using it all your life, and now you get to learn about it! The Core was undoubtedly one of my most influential academic experiences at Stanford, and it fundamentally changed the way in which I see and understand the world. I ended up majoring in Philosophy, not Human Biology, but the Core was an amazing and formative complement to my other academic interests. Even if you decide you want to explore other majors at Stanford, I could not recommend the Core more highly. During my undergrad years I was involved in cancer research at the medical school, I taught middle school children with the H.E.L.P. program, and I wrote for the Stanford Chaparral. I enjoy running, playing the piano, and learning about what it means to be human. Looking forward to a great year!
