Say Howdy to Houston

A whole lotta history, culture, cuisine, science and industry packed into one place. We couldn’t be happier to call Houston home. As the nation’s fourth largest and most culturally diverse city, Houston delivers rich opportunities for Rice students — research, internships and outreach, as well as convenient off-campus excursions.
