Stanford Off & On Learning Campus Opportunities (SOLO): Stanford offers numerous opportunities for students to complement and strengthen the learning they do on-campus: internships, international experiences, research, public service (and so on) but it’s not always easy to find out about them, keep up with the deadlines and requirements, or even apply for them.
