Join fellow Owls for a relaxing time in the hill country at the enchanting Hacienda Del Lago Event Center, owned by Tom Stevenson (Lovett ’88)! We’ll spend the afternoon visiting with Rice alumni, parents and friends while enjoying a meal and participating in fun activities. We're delighted to offer this event for the second time following last year's success thanks to our generous venue host, Tom!

You're encouraged to wear your Rice gear to show off your Owl pride, and if you need some new items feel free to peruse the great selection at the Rice University Official Bookstore.

Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for children ages 4-12. Children 3 and under are free.
