Rebeca Lopez

“My family moved to Stanford for my husband to begin his PhD program in Mexican history. We live in Escondido Village in graduate student family housing. Hoskins Courtyard is my favorite spot on campus. It’s a beautiful green space where kids can play and parents can connect with each other, both commiserating and celebrating all that graduate family life entails.” .


“Living on campus is always interesting – there are sporting events to watch, trails to bike, concerts to hear, new places to visit and people to meet. That’s also what I love about working at Stanford – it’s never boring. For example, I have enjoyed participating in the La Raza Staff Association (LRSA) which connects and supports Stanford’s Chican@ and Latin@ employees. This photo was taken after an LRSA group photo at the Multicultural Springfest 2016 in Frost Amphitheater.”
