  • Nearest dining commons: Foothill Dining Commons (located next to Stern)
  • Theme Program: Stern's second floor houses the Empowering Womxn in STEAM (WISE) program, which welcomes interested students who experience life through the lens of womxn in body, spirit, and identity- past, present, future, and fluid.  As a result, the second floor is designed to be inclusive of transgender and gender-fluid or nonbinary students.
