  • The Rice Program Council (RPC) hosts various campus-wide events and gives students the opportunity to explore Houston by offering subsidized or free tickets to local events. Read along to hear about one student's experience at the Houston Ballet's Nutcracker performance as a part of RPC's Passport to Houston program!

  • When you live in a city as diverse as Houston, you'll find cultural experiences and events throughout the year, such as the Mid-Autumn Festival! A couple of Rice students took an excursion out to Asia Society Texas for this fun weekend event.

  • As you begin to learn more about Rice University's residential college system, you might wonder if all students live there for all four years - the answer is no! While some students think finding off campus housing is intimidating, it's really not, so we asked one recent Rice grad who lived off campus last year to demystify the off campus housing experience for us.
