Emma Buday, '24 (International Relations)

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!

Langston Buddenhagen, '25 (Political Science & Urban Studies)

My name is Langston, and I'm a current Sophomore studying Political Science and Urban Studies. I was born and raised in Oakland, California, a diverse hotspot of community activism, service, and changemaking. As a young man of color from an urban environment with such a unique history, equitable public service that uplifts marginalized communities has always been extremely important to me. I can't wait to share my background, Stanford experience, and these values with future mentees and other folks interested in learning more about pathways of public service at Stanford!

Joey Chen, '25 (Prospective Public Policy)

I’m a second-year prospectively majoring in Public Policy and minoring in Communication and TAPS. My Cardinal Quarter at San Jose City Hall this past summer deepened my understanding of public service and provided much-needed clarity on my future aspirations. I built incredible connections with City staff and Stanford alumni, and gained a breadth of knowledge that I will carry with me for the rest of my life. I’m excited to share my Cardinal Quarter experiences, lessons, and advice with the larger Stanford community; I look forward to helping you find potential avenues to advance your passions!

Cameron Lange, '24 (Political Science & Philosophy)

I’m a Political Science and Philosophy major interested in big normative questions about justice and governance. Feeling very uncertain about how I wanted to pursue public service post-grad, my Cardinal Quarter experience gave me some much-needed clarity about what state-level legislative work looks like. I am so grateful for this opportunity and am excited to pay it forward as a Peer Advisor! I can’t wait to help other students translate their passions into a quarter of service.

I completed my first Cardinal Quarter last summer through the Stanford Nurse Alumnae Fellowship.
