It was great to see so many Owls at Homecoming & Reunion!

Homecoming & Reunion 2015 was a great success! More than 1,500 alumni and friends enjoyed themselves at the All-Alumni Party, the Decades Parties, Classroom Connect, the tailgate, Family Fest, the football game — the list goes on and on.  For those who want to relive the happy memories (or see what they missed), visit the Rice Alumni Flickr album to browse great photos from the weekend.
