My Cardinal Quarter experience exposed me to the everyday intricacies of social entrepreneurship and opened my mind towards various ways through which the social problems I am passionate about can potentially be solved. It made my freshmen summer special, and I look forward to helping other interested students explore and make the most out of this service opportunity.

I’m an International Relations major and Sociology minor interested in effective policy solutions to mitigating the climate crisis. My Cardinal Quarter experience further exposed me to the ways in which public service is possible, ultimately providing a chance to reflect on my personal motivations and career aspirations. I encourage students to partake in the diverse opportunities Cardinal Quarter has to offer, and I hope to guide you towards exploring your current goals or discovering new passions!

I’ve been fortunate enough to participate in two Cardinal Quarter experiences during my time at Stanford. Both summer experiences connected me with inspiring and experienced mentors in my field of interest, offered hands-on experience in the field, and helped me discern what roles best match my skills and interests. I feel so grateful for the opportunities that the Cardinal Quarter program has uniquely afforded me, and I love what this community stands for as well. As such, I’m really looking forward helping students explore how to make the most of these amazing opportunities.

I'm an Earth Systems major interested in social impact and the intersections of climate change, and my Schneider Fellowship was a great experience to explore that further! My Cardinal Quarter fellowship has reaffirmed my passions and opened up other curiosities for me. It has been my best experience up to date and I hope I can help encourage other students to pursue a quarter of public service.

My Cardinal Quarter experience is and will continue to be a highlight of my Stanford experience. Not only did it serve as a great introduction to the professional world, but it also taught me so much in terms balancing personal agency with being a team player. I’d definitely recommend this experience to all Stanford students interested in combining their passions with service, and am excited to help!

My Cardinal Quarter experience completely changed my outlook on life and my future for the better, and I have no doubt that it will continue to be one of the highlights of my college career. I feel incredibly grateful to have had this experience, and I am so excited to help other Stanford students have the same opportunity to explore their passions in public service!
