Frosh-Friendly Thinking Matters

On March 1st, 2014, students in THINK 40 took a field trip to Stanford's Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve. Led by professor David Freyberg, the students hiked down to Searsville Lake and learned about the complex social-environmental tradeoffs involved in managing the watershed.


A foundational principle of Thinking Matters courses is that there are multiple perspectives on any question.

How to fit THINK into your education

Consider taking an elective THINK course as a way to fulfill your WAYS requirements.  THINK courses are completely frosh-friendly--they are only available to you in your first year and offer highly-individualized attention through small discussion sections and tutorials.  Look out for our “Thinking Matters and the WAYS” event in early November!
