Yee-haw! Each spring, everyone across the city, including our Rice Owls, dusts off their cowboy boots and hats to head out to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. This yearly event is one of Houston's biggest and best traditions, and with easy access from the Houston METRO, students can head out for food, shows, games, livestock and more! Check out our video to watch two of our out-of-state students who have never been experience the greatness of a day at the Rodeo.

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.
