Stanford University, or simply Stanford, is an American private research university located in Stanford, California on an 8,180-acre (3,310 ha) campus near Palo Alto. It is situated in the northwestern Silicon Valley, approximately twenty miles (thirty-two kilometres) northwest of San Jose and thirty-seven miles (sixty kilometres) southeast of San Francisco.
After leaving Dean and John circa 2003, Sam Winchester went to Stanford University and applied for law school, and became good friends with Brady (who, unbeknownst to him, was eventually possessed and replaced by a demon), and became Jessica Moore's boyfriend. In November 2005, Brady murdered Jessica on Azazel's orders to drive Sam to return to hunting and ensure Azazel's plans for him, and in the aftermath of Jess' death, Sam left Stanford to return to hunting with Dean for Azazel.
