Make a Gift

Thanks to all who made Homecoming & Reunion 2016 a great weekend!

Rice Homecoming & Reunion 2016 was one to remember with more than 1,500 Owls attending weekend festivities and cheering the football team on to victory! Thanks to everyone who came back to campus and made this the biggest alumni event of the year. 

See photos from the weekend here.

Homecoming & Reunion Co-Chairs

#OnlyAtRice: During my freshman year, Brown College’s beloved “Chef Roger” was named Homecoming King after only a couple of months preparing meals at Rice, such was the state of college dining before his arrival. On the other hand, the campus demonstrated its disapproval of RUPD Officer 220, the prolific parking ticket issuer, rather cheekily by naming him Homecoming Queen. Only at Rice would this be your reigning Homecoming couple.

#OnlyAtRice: My love for the trees on and around campus was no secret. Late one night, some friends sneaked out to the rugby field and surreptitiously planted a tree for my birthday. Over the years — and especially when I return for Homecoming — I’ve watched “my” tree become part of the campus. Students shaping the campus...literally. Only at Rice.
