I recently took my son to Rice for a campus tour. While the campus isn't that big, it offers just about anything you would expect from a prestigious university. Our tour guide who is a current student was very knowledgeable about the university, located in Rice Village close to many museums gives the students many options to see what Houston... More

We have visited many times this past year, as my daughter wants to go here in 2015-16. It is the most beautiful campus we have visited. The professors and students were so helpful and don't ignore you when you look lost. Lovely place to walk around.

Visited Rice university in Houston as part of exploring colleges around country to explore options. Very good university and a lot of history and well explained by the tour guide who were student volunteers.

This place is an amazing oasis in Houston. Even if you don't have a connection to the University, you owe it to yourself to spend time on this amazingly beautiful campus.

I am probably biased - I grew up in Houston, and after a 25+ year career in banking, I recently joined the staff at Rice. The campus is beautiful, with countless old oaks lining the streets. Each building, regardless of the year/decade it was built, blends in with the others. The new-hire orientation revealed great stories about the founder and... More

We stumbled on an excellent architecture exhibition, a student violin recital and a piano concert. The campus itself is impressive by its size and architecture.

My brother-in-law went here for his undergraduate. I had the pleasure to roam campus before his graduation and had a pleasant experience admiring the buildings and landscape the school had to offer. Many couples-including myself-have taken their engagement and wedding photos here.
