EXPLORE LIFE AT RICE

What if you could get a first-hand
look at life at Rice

  • Our students at Rice University have all sorts of interests and hobbies! As a lifelong LEGO fan with a love for construction, mechanical engineering senior Andrew Linhart set off to build a LEGO scale model of the Rice campus with a group of fellow Rice students.

  • As early May rolls around, the existential fear of graduation is slowly sinking in for seniors across campus. Office of Admission interns Naman and Devika matriculated into Rice in 2020, a year that many of us remember all too well. Unfortunately, at the time, all of Rice’s traditional matriculation festivities had come to a halt. As campus has returned to normalcy, the senior class has been fortunate enough to experience a wealth of festivities this year. Read below for some of our interns’ experiences as McMurtry and Martel College seniors!

Every year, cultural organizations host vibrant showcases to share and celebrate one another’s identity on campus through food, dance, art, and music. Showcases serve as a way to cultivate appreciation and respect for each other’s diverse experiences and upbringing. And frankly put, they are quite fun!
