Stanford University, adjacent to Palo Alto, was founded in 1885 by railroad magnate Leland Stanford along with his wife, Jane Stanford, and named in honor of their deceased teenage son, Leland Stanford, Jr. The school's official name is Leland Stanford Junior University, but is rarely referred to by its full title. Stanford University is considered to be one of the most prestigious research universities in the world, building its reputation as a pioneering Silicon Valley institution through top programs in engineering and sciences, and playing an important role in the creation of companies such as Hewlett-Packard, Sun Microsystems, Cisco Systems, Yahoo!, and last, Google.

Stanford University covers 8,180 acres (32 km2), making it the second largest university complex in the world. Because many of the buildings are designed in a common Spanish-colonial style with Moorish-Romanesque accents, the campus has a homogeneous look which makes it one of the most beautiful anywhere. Stanford University campus has a number of interesting sights, including the beautiful Memorial Chapel, the Cantor Museum with the largest collection of Rodin sculptures outside of Paris, the Hanna House designed by Frank LLoyd Wright, and the Stanford Linear Accelerator, housed in the longest building in the world. Stanford university grounds even feature a large nature preserve in the Dish Area and an upscale shopping center.
