Sad news of the day: Professor Michelle Alexander, who is the head of the civil rights clinic, is leaving Stanford in June and there is no current plan to replace her, so the clinic will not be active when we arrive. Damn.
In response to Max's question about LGBT peeps at Yale: The campus is super queer-friendly. As in far beyond "tolerant". Yale Law School is particularly queer, although Yale College, the drama school, the art school, and the architecture school are also really queer. Only the Castro in San Francisco (my current home) is gayer. Does anyone know how Stanford does on queer issues? I know it's in the Bay Area, but, living here, I also know that San Francisco is its own island and the areas around the City, while liberal, are not the same as the City itself. I've heard from some that Stanford is somewhat conservative, or at least not as queer as Yale. Any thoughts?
