For eight months at Stanford University and 18-year-old woman indentified by the school paper as Azia Kim, went to classes, slept in several dormotories and ate in the school's dining hall.

The Stanford Daily, quoting one of Kim's former roommates, said the deception started last September, the day before Stanford's orientation for new students. Two sophomores agreed to let Kim stay in their room after she told them she did not like the roommate she had been assigned.

During the fall and winter terms, Kim allegedly slept in the other women's room or the lounge of the 210-resident dorm. Last month, she moved into another dorm after being referred to another student who needed a roommate.

Resident assistants became suspicious after comparing conflicting statements Kim allegedly gave and contacting the student housing office. Kim was confronted and escorted from campus on Monday, according to The Stanford Daily.

Students are concerned that this actually occured and for such a long time.

Students are not sure if Stanford is doing enough to ensure their safety.

    I thouroughly enjoyed reading this article and was surprised that someone would actually attempt to defraud a university especially considering all the bad business going on with college campuses around the country. Thank you for keeping our community informed. Keep up all the good reporting and I look forward to reading more articles from Ms. Loftley.
