Why the Heron?
The heron on the shield was chosen by a small group of FroSoCo staff, students, and alumni (working with a professional designer, Corwin Stone of The Milk Farm design firm) charged with the task of developing a logo for FroSoCo. We thought that the general idea of a heraldic shield would be cool and amusing. Herons occasionally visit the berm in front of FroSoCo to hunt the rabbits there. They are beautiful and graceful birds with a noble bearing. The heron has interesting and varied symbolism in many different cultures often clustering around a combination of notions of beauty and elegance in balance with strength, power, independence and self-reliance - just the kind of balanced excellence we strive to exemplify at FroSoCo.
The first university facility of its kind in the nation, Ricker Dining is Stanford's highly lauded peanut-sensitive dining environment. In recognition of the growing number of students with peanut allergies, we've taken the steps necessary to provide a safe, full-featured facility in which peanut-sensitive and non-peanut-sensitive diners alike can enjoy the best of what Stanford Dining has to offer. With its beautiful dining location on the west side of campus complete with a state-of-the art meeting room, lounge areas and trellised patio, it's best to enjoy your meal al fresco.
