"Studying at Hopkins means immersing yourself in the very thing you are studying, in the most literal sense possible."
- Samantha Larson, Co-Term Student
More Labs than Lectures
At Hopkins, our backyard (or should we say ocean) is your lab. And that's where most of the learning happens. Discover concepts in the classroom. Walk outside and see them in action.

Penelope is a junior at Stanford studying Biology- Ecology and Evolution, and Linguistics. She is originally from Orlando, FL. Her love for the ocean and nature arose from beach trips, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, hiking, and wildlife photography. During her first two years at Stanford, she’s become scuba certified, conducted research in animal behavior, and spent two quarters (spring and summer) at the Hopkins Marine Station with incredible faculty and students. She is particularly interested in animal behavior and physiology, and has a newfound interest in big fish after a summer internship with Dr. Barbara Block. Please reach out with any questions about Hopkins or her experiences living in Monterey.
