Student life for many at Stanford GSB is more than taking tests. For Father’s and Mother’s Day, we talked to students like Peter Olson, JD/MBA ’20, about how they balance studying and kids’ playtime.

2. Black History Month

Nancy Oduro, MBA ’19, captured portraits of Black Business Student Association and Africa Business Club members and asked them to reflect on this question: “What does Black History Month mean to you?”

In honor of National Pet Day, we asked students to submit pictures of their furry friends. The internet approved.

MBA student Sophia Shramko was the fifth of nine children born to a mother who fled an oppressive marriage. She was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis at age 19, became the first Arab woman involved in research and development in the Israel Defense Forces, and earned a degree in electrical engineering at Tel Aviv University. And that’s just the half of it.

5. Satya Nadella
