Google's New Student Blog!

According to Google lore, our company founders didn't really get along when they first met as Stanford graduate students in 1995. Larry was a 24-year-old University of Michigan alumnus on a weekend visit; Sergey, 23, was assigned to show him around campus. Legend has it that they argued about every topic they discussed. Despite their bickering, they eventually realized that they shared a common goal of solving one of computing's biggest challenges: organizing the world's information and making it universally accessible and useful.

Larry and Sergey then developed an approach to fulfilling this mission that started in a dorm room, expanded to a Menlo Park garage, and eventually became the global campus it is today.

Staying true to our roots, we have always focused heavily on academia. The next way we're attempting to do this is by launching this blog, especially geared towards students like you. Here we will provide you with useful information like product tips and tricks, and give you an inside look into the people and culture behind Google technology. This will also be the best spot to find out about student programs like Code Jam, the Google Online Marketing Challenge, Google Summer of Code™, and our Scholarship Programs and career opportunities.

In addition to this blog, we've also created an email alias where you can reach us directly. This is a way to get in touch with us and let us know what you want to hear about from us. And if you have something to share on this blog -- maybe a cool story about how you used a Google product on or off campus; or an experience from your days as an intern here -- please let us know, and we'd love to help you share it.

We look forward to hearing from you and keeping you up-to-date on all things Google as they relate to you.
