What is your overall opinion of this school?

I came to know this school as a place for unique individuals who strive to push themselves farther, it is a competitive school but one comes to realize that the competition is more internal than external. I appreciate that aspect of this school the most, their focus is on the students and even though they used to be a segregated school their diversity as well as overall student support is significant.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I'm so so glad I chose Rice over other top universities. It may not be as well known in the northeast (yet), but it has the perfect blend of stellar academics and friendly community. Everyone here is so nice and welcoming and there are numerous events throughout the year to take your mind off of studying!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Rice is the upper epsilon of all univeristies. I would love to be an owl. The University is divided into 11 residential colleges (dorms) that you are “sorted” into before you matriculate. Usually you stay in the college for your entire time at Rice. Each dorm has its own governing body, committees, and, in some ways, personality. Additionally, each dorm is set up a little differently as far as rooms go. Some residential colleges emphasize double rooms with a private bathroom, others have suite set ups with shared bathrooms. They have 6 dining halls (called “serveries”) around campus. Although some are specifically designated for a particular college, you are welcome to eat at any of them. One aspect of Rice some people take issue with is the all-or-nothing style to the meal plan if you live on campus. With living on campus you must buy a full meal plan that covers all meals of the week (excluding Saturday evening, when the serveries close). The residential colleges and serveries offer a lot of opportunity for socialization and getting to know other people.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Anyone can make Rice the right school for them. Between academics and arts and athletics and professional pursuits and social circles, Rice offers an abundance of opportunities to suit all kinds of interests– you just have to find them. If you get in, come. After your first Beer Bike, you definitely won't regret it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Rice. Although it is a really hard school that challenges you to the extreme, I am learning so much. My academic life and social life are coexisting and although I'm still trying to find the balance, I love this school so much. I think anyone will love Rice, especially if you love a community that is tight knit and caring for each other, even strangers.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am a visitor at rice university over the summer for an internship. The experience is great , the view is amazing, and the food is spectacular. I am working at the George R , Brown building and the building is always clean and cold even in the hot Houston weather. The people that I work with are also extremely nice and friendly.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Rice University because it promotes an atmosphere of growth for every student through a collaborative environment. I feel so supported by not only the school but also my peers. There are so many opportunities to get involved on campus through extracurriculars and hobbies that you may be passionate about and also serving as a mentor to your peers.
