  • With the fact that we were here in January it had a very Ivy League feel. It is a beautiful campus. Serene calm, a great place for a walk and to get the history of the University. 
  • What a pretty campus! The Quad in front of Fondren Library is a classic. One of the top schools in the country has a campus second to none. Take a drive through when you are in town. Trees everywhere! 
  • An old professor of business from Rice gave us an idea of where to start visiting. People on campus are really kind.It's a beautiful campus with less football court and more trees and classical buildi...  more »

  • I did a photo shoot there amazing! My sister also got accepted to Rice, my turn to try!
  • A prestigious university which keeps a low profile. A drawback however is the university's over emphasis on the US News ranking. Congrat on the 15th best college spot but there is no need to post it as the background of the homepage. :/
  • Saw a couple of people here wearing shirts which read "Can't spell DUH without UH" poking fun at the University of Houston (UH!). Put some 'Respeck' on the name! thought we were buddy buddy guess not.
  • It's beautiful just to look at. Not sure if they have a guided tour, but that would be awesome
  • Make no mistake, no university is perfect for everyone. Rice University is no exception. But the university was about as close to perfect for my needs. I felt like a piece of the pie at this place, with faculty and students that knew who I was and had my back and supported me. There were also tons of things to do. One thing that makes it unique is its residential system, which I'm sure you've heard of by now. There are also some good academic programs and lots of career and summer internship opportunities for both engineers and non-engineers. I think that there is definitely an audience for which Rice appeals. If you are excited to take advantage of the talking points about Rice (and especially the residential system), then you will probably do well and have a memorable experience. If you fight against them, you probably will have a miserable time.
