Stanford Memorial Soundwalk

While at Stanford, you may be interested in the memorial soundwalk, a 1.5 mile, 45 minute walking route through the Stanford arboretum accompanied by a playlist selected by Stanford faculty and student musicians to help walkers reflect on and grieve for those we have lost. It is part of Stanford's COVID-19 remembrance project.
The start of the journey is at the university gates at the corner of University Avenue and El Camino Road, not far from where many Celebration of Life attendees will likely park on Saturday. You can use your mobile device to access an interactive map and listen to the audio here.
