Reasons to attend and to not attend Rice University

To Attend

  • “Rice is really diverse in terms of political opinion, racial identity, and all of that. Even if that’s what I want, it can be difficult to navigate sometimes. I have been challenged by that and have grown from it, so there are positives.”
  • “It’s small and not super competitive in terms of resources.”
  • “The residential college system, the culture of care, and the community here. I didn’t feel that to this degree at any other college I visited.”
  • “The individual attention. There are lots of ways to make the experience your own.”

To Not Attend

  • “If you’re a Distribution 1 major and in the humanities and not interested in anything STEM, it might be hard for you to find your people. Even though those people are here, you should be aware of that. I also think that it doesn’t mean that Rice is any less of an environment for you to be in because of that.”
  • “The residential college system can be isolating in that if you don’t make a conscious effort to make friends outside of your residential college you can get stuck only hanging out with and knowing people in your college.”
  • “There’s not Greek life, so if you want that you won’t find it.”
