Welcome to the Rice Family!
This summer, there will be over a dozen New Student Celebrations across the country, including events in New York City, Chicago, San Francisco, Austin, Dallas, Houston and more!
Sponsored by the Association of Rice Alumni, New Student Celebrations provide a personal welcome for incoming Owls and their families and offer an opportunity to connect with alumni and new and continuing students from their home area. These fun and casual summer events provide a relaxed setting to ask questions about Rice, college life, and living in Houston — and make new friends before making the transition to college!
As details for each event are finalized, including venue location and registration information, updates will appear below. Be sure to check back often! Due to the limited space capacity of where these events are hosted, the New Student Celebrations are invitation only unless otherwise noted.
