Naman and Devika took an excursion off campus into Houston for a celebration of the Mid-Autumn Festival, an event hosted by Asia Society Texas, which is conveniently located in the museum district just a few short minutes away from Rice University. With stations to make crafts, vendors serving up traditional food such as mooncakes, and performances to help the community understand the history behind the Mid-Autumn Festival, our students had a blast getting to enjoy this event. Check out our video from the event!
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!
