Rice is an outstanding University with many programs they share with the public. Baseball and other sports. Many many music recitals and concerts. Huge talent, the world's best have often been thru the Rice program. Great art spaces too. Another of Houston's best kept secrets! Enjoy!

For a school with just under 4000 under graduates, the campus is quite large and a beautiful walk. Some Gothic buildings and nice walk ways

The campus was absolutely beautiful, we were able to drive all around it. Beautiful buildings some old and some not as old. Very well kept up, clean and lovely. Some construction going on around the sports area. The surrounding area is fabulous, just a fantastic area to drive around. Gorgeous homes, beautiful area.

Not only is the campus lovely, but the area surrounding it is beautiful. The well kept homes are a delight to see, and there are great restaurants and shops within a few blocks of the campus.

Take a stroll around the campus and surrounding streets. Full if beautiful old oaks and buildings that have almost a Mediterranean feel. Great part of town to admire architecture. Can park in surrounding neighborhood after 4.

Great place to visit and have a stroll around the campus and relax. Beautiful place with a restaurant and cafe you can drink and eat something. Also very close to Herman park. Be sure to visit the Turrel sky and light exhibit - awesome.

I visited the campus on a visit to see a football game. Great campus! Small venue with great visibility of the field from all angles.

There are however two real gems within the campus, one is the Rice University Gallery which specializes in large-scale installation art. The other highlight is the Skyspace, an architectural...
