Affinity Groups

Rice Alumni Volunteers for Admission (RAVA) supports the recruitment process, public relations goals and selection process at Rice University.  RAVA provides an opportunity for prospective students in Bay Area and beyond to have an off-campus interview and conversation with a Rice alumnae/us. RAVA volunteers serve as a contact and resource for students we have interviewed and encourage admitted students from Bay Area to attend Rice. For more information, visit RAVA’s volunteer page: or contact our local RAVA captain Karen Pieper (’85) at

Rice Engineering Alumni - Bay Area seeks to connect alumni, support students, and encourage excellence. REA-Bay Area’s recent events include a tour of TESLA, visit to the computer history museum, and hosting speakers and social events. We are run by a group of alumni volunteers and are looking for new members to join our steering committee. For more information, contact Duo Wu (’12) at

Young Alumni is a community-building group geared for young alumni who have graduated within the last 10 years. Our group facilitates social, service, and networking events and acts as a conduit to the university and to other alumni groups in the area. Contact Shar Caesar (’07) at for more information.
