Intellectual competition — it’s a battle of the brains, a match against masterminds and a contest of cleverness. It’s a spirit that spreads far and wide across Rice University’s campus and into almost every Rice alum around the world. In fact, friendly competitions on campus make up a handful of beloved Rice traditions, from carefully instrumented jacks on residential colleges to the less intellectual, more coordinated sport of drunken bicycle races — not to mention problem-solving in classrooms. Test your intellectual competitiveness as a warm up to our virtual All-Alumni Game Night series! Find all upcoming dates below.
