|A second person has been discovered posing as a Stanford University student and has been sent a letter by university officials to stay away from the campus.
The first person discovered as a phony student had been living in campus dorms for eight months as an undergraduate. The second may have been on campus since 2004, posing as a graduate physics student.
The university has not identified either student imposter, but the Stanford Daily reported that the supposed undergraduate was Azia Kim and the student posing as a graduate student was Elizabeth Okazaki.
The student newspaper reported that Okazaki had been attending graduate seminars for four years and using offices intended for graduate students.
The university is now conducting an investigation to discover how non-students could successfully pose at students, which has upset both parents and students.
"We recognize that this (latest) allegation, following earlier reports of an individual falsely impersonating an undergraduate, raises important questions about campus security," said Jeff Wachtel, senior assistant to Stanford President John Hennessy. "In addition, there are separate investigations underway of each of these individual cases."
