New Student Celebration 2021

There are two opportunities to participate in the Virtual New Student Celebration — and you’re welcome to register for one or both at the link above! At our Regional Meet and Greet, connect with Owls near your hometown and ask questions to current students, families and alumni. Can’t find a city near you? No worries! Select “City Not Listed” and we’ll handle the rest. At our Affinity Group Meet and Greet, learn more about the Rice experience from our Owls with shared interests, affiliations, professional pursuits and more. Check out a full list of Affinity Groups.


Share your Rice experience with incoming Owls! Register through the same link above for our Regional Meet and Greet and/or our Affinity Group Meet and Greet. Answer questions from both new students and their families, give advice you wish you had when you began your Rice journey and connect with the newest members of our Rice family!
