Our Weekend Roundup is released on Sunday mornings during the school year and features an engaging rundown of the news from the previous week in the form of a briefing. It also includes editors’ picks from our Arts & Life, Grind, Opinions and Satire sections, as well as a list of upcoming events to watch out for in the next week.

The few undergraduates who may stay on campus — primarily international students who cannot go home, students with known health or safety risks and students who are homeless — will face a very different spring quarter. According to the University, there will be limited dining options, no programing for students and no gyms or recreational centers open.
An effort to catalogue historical assets in Stanford’s San Juan Residential District is raising questions over whether the University should prioritize history or affordability. On one side of the debate is a group of faculty members and their family members who want to preserve the historic character of their neighborhood. They oppose Stanford’s plan to tear down two houses and build seven new ones in their place. But other faculty worry that a historical designation would interfere with the University’s ability to build more sustainable, high-volume faculty and staff housing.
In Arts & Life, Patricia Wei profiled Leanna Lewis, pictured above, a student filmmaker fighting for representation of Native women in media. In Satire, Lana Tleimat reported on “a state of public emergency” after Stanford ran out of Wi-Fi. And in The Grind, Ellie Utter mused on memory and loss — on holding onto Stanford as we leave it behind.
As a result of the University’s restrictions on public gatherings, The Daily is not providing an events calendar until in-person classes resume.
Additionally, as students move off campus, The Daily — an organization led and staffed primarily by undergraduates — is suspending its print edition. We may resume production of the print edition if/when in-person classes resume in spring.
