To succeed at Stanford and beyond, it is important to optimize both physical and mental health through healthy lifestyle choices and habits. The A3C iLive series aims to dispel misconceptions, increase awareness, and encourage dialogue about health and well-being topics relevant to Asian Americans, as well as to introduce students to resources on campus. The Asian American Activities Center is a University Department under the Office of the Vice Provost for Student Affairs. For more information visit

Life Choices

How do you make decisions at Stanford?

Do you juggle wanting future stability, parents' expectations and needs, and your own interests?

At Stanford, we face a lot of new choices. Who do I spend time with? What clubs do I join? What major/internship/career do I choose? Making independent decisions comes with a lot of pressure. Some pressure might be our parents. We may feel an obligation to them because they raised us and are supporting us financially. Other pressures might be future social and financial security for yourself and your family. Come join us at the A3C for an iLive discussion on making choices that exercise our independence as college-aged adults while balancing parental and familial needs.
