A new virtual platform is helping the Stanford community recapture the campus experience.
It’s called Club Cardinal, and it’s turned the university into an online, interactive space.
Club Cardinal is a virtual reproduction of the Farm where community members can socialize and experience Stanford life while living, working and studying apart.
“We wanted to make a virtual Stanford campus where the entire community — students, faculty and staff — could reconnect and see each other again on one platform, and also see the campus,” said Michelle Qin, ’23.
Qin and fellow Stanford undergrads WenXin Dong, ’23; Allison Zhang, ’23; Sreya Halder, ’23; and Azhia Harris, ’20, are the creators of Club Cardinal. Together they designed and developed the platform to be a virtual reproduction of the Farm and to also serve as a space for the community to socialize and experience Stanford life while living, working and studying apart.
