When we lived in Houston, we used to ride our bikes (my kids were young) all over the Rice University campus. What a beautiful, tranquil campus. We have very fine memories of cruising around the campus. One of the prettiest in the country.

We love walking around campus at Rice, it is an experience. If it were not for the heat and humidity, it would remind you of an Ivy League School, with it's magnificent huge Oaks, and quadrangle. It is a magnificent University, with Nobel Prize winners and wonderful professors. Rice does not have "fraternities" or sororities, rather students live in "Colleges,"... More

Located between the sprawling Texas Medical Center and Rice Village, Rice University is one of the top institutions of higher learning in North America, at the same level as any of the Ivy League schools. The campus is beautiful, with classical, well-maintained buildings, well-kept gardens and hundreds of old trees that provide the needed shade in this semi-tropical climate. The... More

Travelled to the campus by tram which stops right outside the campus. The grounds were amazing. I collected a map from the front office and enjoyed a pleasant walk. Beautiful oak trees and flowers are all around the campus. Just a shame it was the end of the semester I would have liked to have met some students.

This is the type of campus I wish I had attended in college. Very peaceful atmosphere that is very walkable, even in the hot Summer months. Other people were around with their dogs or on bicycles, just enjoying the day. My dog loved chasing the squirrels.

We visited Rice recently with our daughter who is considering applying there. I was amazed at the history and architecture of Rice University. The staff and students were extremely friendly and well informed. We have visited several universities recently, and Rice is the most beautiful campus we have visited. The engineering department visit was inspiring. Rice University appears to have... More
