EXPLORE LIFE AT RICE

What if you could get a first-hand
look at life at Rice

  • Rice students, whether through research or community service, strive to embody the values of innovation and care by prioritizing the health and wellbeing of their fellow students. Student-led health initiatives are a pivotal part of the university’s efforts to encourage students to learn beyond the classroom. Take a look below at just a few of the student-led health initiatives that are embedded in Rice’s Culture of Care.

  • The MOB's vibrant and spirited performances have become a staple at Rice football games, and their unique style of scattering into various formations on the field while playing good music adds an element of entertainment to every game.

  • Each fall, Rice students escape the classroom for a 4-day weekend, otherwise known as Midterm Recess. This long weekend allows Owls to seek some well-deserved solace, rest and fun amidst the busy school year. Follow along as our intern Naman recounts his classic Texas road trip to San Antonio and Big Bend with a group of friends during Midterm Recess.
