  • A Rice education is something special. Although my daughter chose not to apply to Rice after our visit, it was clear to us both that students who attend Rice are receiving an above average academic ex...  read more »
  • An architectural gem! Gargoyles, carvings of all kinds, the likes of a long-ago century. The Shepherd School of Music is special with many opportunities for free concerts by students and teachers. 
  • It's not easy to find and you have to pay for parking and then walk a bit, but you get rewarded with a skyspace by James Turrell right there on campus, and almost no peole. If you want to see the ligh...  read more »
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • This is such a big and pretty university! I'm in taking a foreign language course, and everything is so well organized.
  • I love this place. The library is perfect place to study and it's 24 hours which makes me spend days in it
  • It's beautiful just to look at. Not sure if they have a guided tour, but that would be awesome
