Get to Know Brandi
- What part of serving on the ARA Board are you most excited about?
I am most excited to represent fellow alumni from the Chicago and midwest area and to further connect the alumni community outside of Houston. I am thrilled when I encounter a Rice alumni so far from campus and want to enable the occasion more often! The chance to offer a variety of programming to alumni in the region is a great honor and a wonderful way to continue our Rice experience "beyond the hedges."
- What is your favorite “Only at Rice” memory or story?
My best "only at Rice" memory surrounds me every day when I consider that I met my husband and best friends all from Rice (and most from Brown College!). Literally, my family was seeded during my freshmen year and today is a strong tight knit group of people who I love dearly and talk to every day. Only at Rice can your randomly-selected roommate, the folks on your hall and the guy you met a party become your family!
- If you could give one piece of advice to Rice students, what would it be?
Try a variety of experiences and get uncomfortable trying those experiences. Let those experiences shape your interests and opinions and convictions. Share experiences with others. Rinse and repeat.
