I doubt that will affect Stanford's prestige much. I think Stanford's branding carries more weight than any USNWR article.

I know that the President in the article is no longer the President, and the student activists are no longer the student activists ... so yes, I think they feel differently than what was mentioned in the article.

That's what they said about Michigan in the 80s.
