  • 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!

  • 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.
