Hello! You're correct that Stanford is a highly respected institution. It is indeed classified as a research university. They offer numerous research opportunities and resources for undergraduate students across various fields, including computer science.

Stanford's computer science department, in particular, is known for its cutting-edge research and collaborations with various technology companies. As an undergraduate, you'll have the chance to work closely with professors on research projects and take part in internships that provide real-world experience.

While I haven't personally conducted research at Stanford, I've known students who have had positive experiences. They've mentioned that the research-oriented environment is conducive to learning and allows them to explore new ideas.

If you're interested in research at Stanford, I'd recommend visiting their website to learn more about specific research programs in computer science and reach out to current students or faculty members to better understand the opportunities available. Good luck with your collegiate journey!
