DYS is a class that helps students get more out of their college experience rather than cram more in. During Fall quarter, the class is open to sophomores only. During Winter and Spring quarters, the class is open to both freshmen and sophomores. 

Using a process rooted in Design Thinking, the course equips students with tools to design a college experience that better aligns with who they are and what they hope to get from Stanford.

Designing Your Life

DYL is a course that uses design thinking to address the “wicked problem” of designing your life and career. The class offers a framework, tools, and most importantly a place and a community of peers and mentors where we’ll work on these issues through assigned readings, reflections, and in-class exercises. The course employs a design thinking approach to help students from any major develop a constructive and effective approach to finding and designing their vocation after Stanford.
