Welcome ALC 2 Participants!

let us prepare for an amazing experience

Welcome to the ALC Family

Hello, 你好, こんにちは!My name is Hirona, the Program Director of ALC 2. Welcome to VIA and the ALC family! Some of you might remember my name or face from interviews during the selection process;) I am very excited to have you all at Stanford this summer where you will have the opportunity to have life-changing experiences, gain long-lasting friendship and deepen understanding of yourself and the world.

"Learn with, from and through others"

For this intensive four weeks at ALC, you will encounter many cross-cultural differences and similarities among participants. Throughout the program, let's think about how we can contribute to each other's learning ;)

*Photo: This was my first experience to fast (not eating after sunrise to sunset) for Ramadan in Turkey. I learned that being religious and following some religious customs means different.

So, how can you prepare for ALC?
