IS RICE THE RIGHT SCHOOL FOR YOUR STUDENT?

  • Does your student enjoy using their skills and ideas to impact the world around them?

  • Is your student looking for a small school without limiting their opportunities?

  • Would your student thrive in a highly collaborative, inclusive environment?

  • Does your student seek out fresh perspectives to diversify their worldview?

  • Is your student in search of a vibrant social life built on support and community?

These are the kinds of unconventional students we're looking for - the curious thinkers, passionate dreamers and energetic doers. Each student brings a set of experiences to the table – different academic backgrounds, thoughts, values, beliefs and cultural perspectives – and that's what makes studying at Rice a fulfilling and enriching experience.
