Stanford has thousands of students who call Palo Alto home during their time as university students. However, we at the city of Palo Alto don’t want the student experience to only take place on campus, and want to encourage students to come visit downtown PA more often.

We are seeking creative new ideas to try and increase the frequency of visits and number of students who choose to make trips into downtown Palo Alto part of their weekly social life. Ideas are not limited in scope, and can cover anything from improved transportation from campus to downtown, to an improved calendar of events in Palo Alto to try and entice more students to visit. Be creative, and think about ways that would encourage you to come visit downtown PA more often!


Provide a pdf (or word) document that outlines the following information:

1. Explain why you feel students are currently not visiting downtown Palo Alto

2. Propose TWO individual solutions that would boost the number of students visiting downtown PA. Include any calculations, adjusted transportation routes, or graphs of projected numbers you used to come up with your solutions.

    Submissions will be graded on the following criteria:
  • Meets Deliverables
  • Creativity
  • Clarity
