  • Right across Main Street from Hermann Park, this campus has some great architecture and nice wooded and green areas. There's a lovely water fountain with benches to sit. The high point, though, is the...  more »

  • I like fat pigs. Rice gave me that. It has an after class pig club where we meet nomadic pastoralists and their herds. Many of these include all kinds of fat pigs such as the pigeon, the pink pig, the fat pig and the mighty rice pig. Even though the human anatomy seemed to lack pig criteria as well as epicenter location skills, it is overall my favorite class as there is a pig on the cover, however I feel like it is false advertising as and I repeat and stress that there is NO PIG CRITERIA IN THE CLASS ITSELF. To conclude I would recommend Rice University to everyone unless you are looking to be a pig expert.
  • Better than the Ivy Leagues of the North East. Good quaint campus in the heart of Houston. Great academic programs too.
  • Great university that has probably the most beautiful underrated campus in the US
  • The amount of people there was so stupid, the bow of the titanic looks like a pig lung stock. Disney and google eat the entire campus but the liberal fire alarm was broken. The police are there every other Tuesday, you find corpses every couple of hours, the City has cut funding and the buildings reflect it. The people who own the place suck up money like a vacuum, the 24 hour light switch never worked, if you got a fire started, you were lucky. I honestly think the middle of Greenland would be a better place to get an education. I don't understand how the buildings burn down every other month or how the grass is that color, I could go on, but you get the point. the mold literally causes people to get smallpox, and the staff has the country of Prussia on speed dial. If you can go outside without braking a limb, you just won the lottery. No WiFi, no food, no shelter, a surprising lack of air, all the water is a weird shade of yellow and brown. Lions roam the hallways. Common sense is a joke. i think I even saw a hoard of zombies. You can find alcohol and drugs everywhere you look. Stay away from this hole, you will literally be a better person if you never see this place.
  • An excellent college for many fields in the technological world.

Where to stay in Houston

If you come to Houston to splurge while on holiday, book a luxurious room at a downtown hotel. This area is an ideal base for getting to know Houston, offering you a chance to stay within walking distance of one of the country's largest theater districts. Houston bills itself as the "Energy Capital of the World," so it's no surprise that it houses many "green" hotels, their garages designed to cater to electric vehicle owners. For something completely different, enjoy a Texas country experience at a working ranch outside the city limits.
