One of the best parts of living in a city like Houston is how many things there are to do. Students can attend events like the Bayou City Art Festival and connect with the local culture and artists, and Ayla and Julie had a great time walking around all the art booths!
Houston is a foodie paradise, home to over 10,000 restaurants spanning a variety of budgets, ambiences and cuisines. Here are some Rice favorites.
Rice Owls often remark that campus is a bubble. Although our campus is always active and has many events put on for students, the city of Houston has many options too. Throughout the semester, Nimah and Devin have been using their weekends to explore Houston’s bakeries, restaurants, markets, libraries, and more to immerse themselves in the greater Houston community & culture.
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!
