Despite a rainy start, Parents' Weekend shines

After hugs from their students, parents headed off for a weekend of events – just for them - that provided a glimpse of what Stanford has to offer, from a lecture on the quantum mechanics of nanostructures to "The Man Who Lied to His Laptop," a talk on the personal relationships humans are forming with machines. And there were treasured opportunities for parents to share time with their offspring at community center and residence hall receptions. University Photographer Linda Cicero captured some of the events.
