Rice Day

Rice Day 2011: Celebrating Rice People

Each year the Association of Rice Alumni invites the Rice community on October 12—Rice Day—to help spread the word about Rice by wearing a Rice pin, hat, T-shirt, or however else may suit your personal style.  The idea is that although we are a small university, with 45,000+ alumni, parents, students, and friends becoming living symbols of Rice, we can make a big impact in a single day to help promote the university.

Why October 12? When the Rice Institute opened its doors in 1912, our founders declared to the world that Rice would stand among its premiere institutions of learning, inviting educators and leaders from across the globe to opening ceremonies on October 10-12. Now, nearly 100 years later, Rice has more than 45,000 alumni who are living testaments to the quality of the institution and its educational accomplishments. As we near our centennial in 2012, we want to invite you to help share the university's history and our aspirations with people you live, work, and socialize with every day.

We encourage you to visit www.rice.edu/aboutrice to brush up on your knowledge of Rice so you can help tell your friends and colleagues why Rice is one of the leading universities in the U.S. today.

Any time is a good time to share your knowledge of and appreciation for Rice and the many wonderful people who comprise the Rice community, but we encourage your participation especially every October. With 45,000 alumni, Rice has fewer alums than some universities have students. Let the world know Rice is a special place.


Ways to Promote Rice

Wear your Rice ring, a Rice hat, pin, or whatever suits your personal taste. If you're running low on Rice parapernalia, the Rice University Bookstore sells Rice gear in the Rice Memorial Center, Rice Stadium (during home games) and online.

Update your knowledge of Rice's success with new information from Rice Facts.

Become a fan of Rice by joining the university's official Rice Fan Page on Facebook.

"Hoot" (our version of "Tweet") with us on Twitter.

Network with fellow alums through LinkedIn, an online professional networking site.

Sign up for an alumni.rice.edu forwarding address to promote your Rice connection every day.

Join the Rice Alumni Volunteers for Admission to promote Rice to local high school students in your area.
