  • Jane Stanford Way: Today, Stanford’s official address becomes 450 Jane Stanford Way. New signs have been installed along the former Serra Mall, which runs across the front of the main campus from Campus Drive West to Campus Drive East. The renaming of campus features named for Junipero Serra was initiated by members of the Native American community and was recommended by a campus committee last year. Members of the university community are invited to a celebration at 4 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 14, in Memorial Court. Learn more about the event.
