Each Quad contains thousands of color photographs, sections on academic life, residential life, student life, campus organizations and Stanford sports. The senior section of the book contains portraits of the graduating class, coverage of commencement and senior dedications to congratulate seniors for their achievements. Books are approximately 350 pages long and are printed on premium, heavy-weight, glossy paper.
No. Senior dedications generally use personal photos, whether professionally taken or not. See the Senior dedications page for more information.
If you could not pick up your book but ordered, please contact us. A limited number are still available for purchase for $85. If you did not graduate and wish to purchase a yearbook, you can do so next year at the fall distribution. More information will be posted around the beginning of the school year. If you are a senior and wish to purchase a yearbook, you can do so by mailing a check for $80, made out to The Stanford Quad, PO Box 18812, Stanford, CA 94309. Please include your name, contact information, US mailing address, and remember to sign the check.
The Stanford Quad is a student-run organization that publishes the Stanford undergraduate yearbook. We do not receive any funding from the University and are fully funded by book, dedication, and commercial advertising sales.
Yes, we do have select years of past Quads for purchase. Visit our ordering page for a list of available editions. Note: We only do one print run of each edition and cannot reprint if we run out.
We do a single print run of the Quad each year based on the number of orders we receive by January. Quads are never reprinted, so once we run out of a particular edition, they are gone forever. The best way to ensure you get a copy is to order it the year it is printed.
Not at all! The Quad aims to capture the entire Stanford experience. It does not focus only on senior activities, although the senior class is the only one represented through individual portraits. The Quad has hundreds of pages dedicated to everything from dorm events to architecture and the arts. Overall, the Quad strives to represent life on the Farm for all undergraduates.
Seniors are notified by email with their portrait sessions. There are sessions in the fall and winter quarters. Absolutely no purchase is necessary to appear in the yearbook. Visit our senior portrait page for more information.
If you have pictures that would be great for the yearbook, we'd like to see them. You can submit them to us through our submit page, but there is no guarantee we'll put them in the yearbook. However if we do, we will be sure you get photo credits. Please include the names of those pictured in the photo for indexing.
