The Association of Rice Alumni welcomes incoming Owls and their families each summer at New Student Celebrations, held each summer across the U.S. and internationally. These fun and casual events provide new students and families with a personal welcome from alumni, other families and current students from their home area. New Student Celebrations are the perfect setting to ask questions about Rice, college life in general and living in Houston — and to make new friends before transitioning to college!
New Student Celebrations will start again in summer 2020. To get an idea of what happens at these events, take a look at the festivities from summer 2019.
Our 2019 events took place in the following cities. Special thanks go to all our hosts!
