Stanford University Campus Facts

Founded in 1885, Stanford University has been a prominent institution for learning and research in the Silicon Valley, giving rise to numerous advancements in science and technology. Leland Stanford, a railroad magnate and politician, was responsible for a series of stop-action photographic experiments on how horses run that led directly to the invention of motion pictures. These “movies” were filmed in 1878 in a barn on Stanford’s campus. This cutting-edge research has been part of Stanford’s legacy ever since. Stanford was one of the first nodes for ARPANET, a predecessor of the internet. The students and staff that have walked on this campus have gone on to develop companies such as Hewlett-Packard, Google, Sun Microsystems, Netflix, Electronic Arts, and more! Stanford has influenced so many prominent innovations and research, that the school continues to be among the world’s leaders in humanities, sciences, and engineering.
