  • Our students at Rice University have all sorts of interests and hobbies! As a lifelong LEGO fan with a love for construction, mechanical engineering senior Andrew Linhart set off to build a LEGO scale model of the Rice campus with a group of fellow Rice students.

  • As early May rolls around, the existential fear of graduation is slowly sinking in for seniors across campus. Office of Admission interns Naman and Devika matriculated into Rice in 2020, a year that many of us remember all too well. Unfortunately, at the time, all of Rice’s traditional matriculation festivities had come to a halt. As campus has returned to normalcy, the senior class has been fortunate enough to experience a wealth of festivities this year. Read below for some of our interns’ experiences as McMurtry and Martel College seniors!

  • Rice recently welcomed admitted students and their families to campus for Owl Days 2024! An all-day program for admitted students, Owl Days is an opportunity for students to explore Rice University and its surrounding area. The Class of 2028 connected with fellow Owls, learned more about what the next four years may look like, and also experienced Rice's community, academics and culture of care.
