No surprise that one of the world’s most acclaimed neuroradiologists fell in love at the undergraduate library.

Specifically, “the underground vending machine tunnel,” says Scott Atlas (BS ’77, biology), a senior fellow at Stanford’s Hoover Institution and 2011 Alumni Achievement Award recipient.

“I used to take study breaks there, often convincing my more studious future wife — Janice Rossi, also an undergrad — to stop studying and take breaks with me during sophomore and junior years. We would sit there for hours and talk.”

They’ve been married for 34 years and have two sons, aged 20 and 22.
